However, how do we cope when we know we are losing another "teal sister." I know a lady who was diagnosed with OVCA maybe two years ago? Anyway, I just learned tonight that they're giving her only 3-4 months to live. She is the head librarian where my daughter attends college (a small private, Christian school). My daughter just called me earlier tonight to tell me about Hope. Of course, now my daughter is scared as am I.
I know we're all different. But how do you cope when you lose a friend to the same disease? Hope's was bad when found. She had 4 months of chemo before surgery, then four more months of chemo afterwards. She had a brief break, then it became active again. I haven't talked to her in a while, but I know she is still working every day and she continues to run, even competiting. I think she is around 57 yrs. old.
Please tell me how you cope with this kind of news?
And please, ladies, don't let this discourage you. I know it's hard though.
