How strange! I have no idea how I got an email update from this thread, but I'm so glad I did. I just got the call last night that my Mom has terminal cancer. It apparently started in her lungs about a year ago, but she asked that we, her children, not be told. It finally came out because, when I visited her last month in the nursing home she's in in VA (I'm in PA) she wasn't wearing her dentures. She told me that there was a sore spot that made wearing them very painful. I spoke to the nurse, and the nurse made a dentist's appointment for her. The cancer in now in her mouth and throat, and there's really nothing they can do except keep her comfortable.
I'd love to participate in this challenge as much as I can. I can't do every day, is that ok? I'll be out of town next week, and I'll be heading back to VA later in the month. Is there a main thread I can go to for all the details on the challenge?
Thanks. I will do this in honor of my Mom, because I know there are people doing their best to make her life enjoyable, hopefully I can bring a bit of joy to someone else suffering from cancer.
