A few weeks ago, one of my dearest online friends
was diagnosed with cancer. She's exactly my age; our sons were born within days of each other. Though I only know her online, she's one of the most wonderful people I've ever had the pleasure to meet, and the positivity with which she approaches her battle with cancer is incredible.
So, Apis, this is for you. There's half a world between us so I can't be there for you in person, but I want to give you strength - for you and for your family, for all the times that lie ahead.
Thank you for all the good wishes - I'm sure that she'll be delighted when she reads them all!!
