I had decided this morning that I was going to do my blog post on a charity (since the Canadian Cancer Society is sitting all by its lonesome on the “Charities Fighting Cancer” page!) Originally I had planned on writing about the American Cancer Society, but after reading Arianne’s story… well it was obvious which charity I should write about.
I can’t believe it’s been ten years already, I can remember everything like it only happened last month… Sometimes, even though it’s been so long, when the phone rings I’ll think and hope, only for an instant, that it’s her. Just as quickly, I’ll remember and know that it’s not.
My youngest sister, Arianne, hadn’t been feeling well for a few months. She’d been back and forth to the doctor several times, but every test they gave her, for all the things the doctors suspected, came up clear. No one seemed to know what was really wrong with her.
