Hello Everyone,

I'm sorry I haven't posted this week, but a chemo friend of mine has been my priority.

I met Memory, a 27 year old kindergarten teacher, last spring when we were both having chemo. She and I became friends and I was so thrilled when she was declared in remission from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in May. She started back teaching in August and everything looked bright for her. However, she began having some unexplained pains that resulted in her having her blood work done a couple of weeks earlier than usual. Last Friday she was admitted to the hospital with what the doctors thought might be leukemia. To make a long story a little shorter, she had to be transported on Tuesday to MD Anderson in Houston where they diagnosed her with a very rare cancer called Burkitt's Lymphoma. It is very aggressive, but does respond to treatment.

If anyone would like to send her a message of support, you may do so by going to Caringbridge.com. View the patient's webpage and type in TX and Memory. I know she would love to hear from my semicolon friends whom I speak of so often. She is strong, but has a battle to fight!

I now know how helpless caregivers feel. This last week has been so difficult as there is nothing I can do for her but let her know how much people are pulling for her.

Thank you so much.

Hugs,

Kay
