On the 4th Day of Love Letter Writing...
Welcome to day 4 of 12! Pull out your pens and get to scripting. This one is a special one! Need some tips on writing letters? We've got them for you!
Charlene’s daughter is requesting a bundle for her brave mother! She shared:
“My mom is the strongest, most independent woman I know. She's my best friend. I'm one of those lucky women who's been close to her mother all her life, even through those tough teenage years. She was recently diagnosed with Stage four Hodgkin's lymphoma. Thankfully, this is a treatable cancer, though the diagnosis was still a blow to all of us, especially my mom. Though she's a fighter and will fight this with all she has in her, she has understandably been having a really hard time with this illness putting limits on her physically. She does not have insurance and was hoping to continue working, but the disease just takes too much out of her, so she has taken a leave from her job for a while so she can focus on getting healthy again. She has just begun chemo and is preparing to cut her hair as it is already starting to fall out. She has been so strong and courageous during this so far, but she is understandably scared of the unknowns and frustrated by the limits this has put on her body.
My hope is that she can get letters of love, encouragement, and inspiration from people all over the world. I hope that these letters will help her when she is feeling down and struggling with fighting the cancer beast. I think these letters would be a great source of comfort for her when she's at home alone and needing a pick-me-up. My mom will be getting a full body scan in January to determine if her body is responding to the chemo. I know she will be very nervous before that appointment. These love letters would bring some much-needed positivity.”
Please join us as we pen words of hope + encouragement to Charlene this holiday season!
