THE STORY:


Hello! As some of you may remember, I recently spent a couple days at Mary's Place By The Sea. My scheduled stay took place just a few days after I was told by my doctor that my chemotherapy wasn't doing the job anymore. I have to admit -- that was quite a shock. In fact, I almost didn't go to Mary's Place after that -- as I couldn't imagine spending time with a bunch of other women talking about cancer ... cancer ... cancer.

 

But I did go and I am so very thankful for this place, for the women who volunteer there, the women who run the place and the women with whom I shared my stay. I left there so calm and, to a certain extent, accepting of my fate.

 

Everybody I've met since I've been diagnosed with cancer -- whether it be at Sloan Kettering or Mary's Place -- have been phenomenal people. But this place -- it really is special. It gave me a break. It catered to me. It allowed me to share in many ways feelings with other people going through the same thing and who can understand unlike anyone else.

 

It was a happy stay ... it was a good thing. And the women that started this? I can only thank them and support them as much as I can -- so I intend to walk on May 20. My kids bought me a transfer wheelchair, so if I can't walk the full distance that day, I'll be pushed, just so I can show my support for Mary's Place.

 

If any of you have a few extra dollars and you're looking for a worthy cause -- this is it. It may not be a research center curing cancer -- but it's intimately, soulfully helping women, one by one, facing cancer, treatments and all that comes with such a life-impacting diagnosis. It's truly amazing.

 

And to my friends and family who have already so generously donated through my daughters' pages, thank you. We'll be there on the 20th together ... as our family always has been: together when things get tough.

 

XO
