I have never posted anyone else’s story here, but Charlotte’s. But the beauty of WordPress is that it allows me to bring the story of other children and the parents who share their journeys easily and, I hope, powerfully. Please read my online friend Deborah’s post about how Donna’s Cancer Story changed her life. Then, in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and in honor of my cousin Lindsey who has fought (and won!) cancer before finishing her first year of college, start reading Donna’s story at HuffPost. You’ll need to read it day by day for the rest of the month. Or, if you need to dice right in, go to the original.
You’ll need a box of tissues.
