Hope You Can Cling To Thank you...
Wow - Evasempermom received this email from a patient at MD Anderson and wanted me to share it with all of you who so generously donated your time and talent to this effort!
Just wanted you to know how much I enjoy the "stamp art" cards you volunteers make and distribute at the M.D.Anderson Breast Center.
I go every Monday for my Chemo but was in the Breast Center today to see my Oncologist. They had a basket of "beautiful" cards for us to take. I got some a while ago and was so excited to see another basket this week. These are very different than the last basket...loved both, but especially love all the "pink" in these.
The one I chose that you did had 2 baby monkeys holding a heart balloon and it said "Best Friends". I was so happy you included your email so I could thank you. Some have names stamped on the backs of the cards, some have labels on the plastic bag, but most don't have any designation.
Thanks a million for your "volunteerism" and if you work in a group, please pass on my thanks to those who make them and don't put their name on them.
I had a single mastectomy in August with expander reconstruction and now I am going through my first 12 weeks of Taxol and Herception. In Jan, I will start F.E.C. chemo and Herceptin for another 12 weeks. After chemo, they will do my reconstruction surgery...in the spring. I feel so blessed they caught mine early...stage 1 and no lymph node involvment. We lived in Houston for 28 years, then retired to North Arkansas. Had been there 3 years, but knew where I had to come for treatment.
Thanks a million...you definitely made my day !!
