Hudson, CO. One of our patients gave me one today. I work for a surgeon and she came into see us today. As we were talking about our cancers hers being breast, mine being colon. I was sharing with her a story of a women working at Target and I went through her check out line you could tell she only had one breast and wore a lymph-edema sleeve on her arm. You could see that she had one breast, I asked her if she was interested in getting a free Bra and breast prosthesis and she said "I wish". I can't afford one. I explained to her who I was and what I did for a living. And offered her my phone number so that I could hook her up with a free bra and prosthesis through a local women's store who donates them for free. It was at that time she gave me a Hope bracelet.
What did you do with it?
I kept it.
Are you wearing it today?
Yes, I am wearing it now.
What hope do you want nurtured in 2012?
My hope is to excourage other cancer patients never to give up. There is always hope in every situation. Without hope we lose the battle to fight!
