Re-evaluate Friends After Cancer

Are all friendships worth saving?

When I was going through the worst of treatment for oral cancer, I had friends that disappeared….They sent a card.

When I got better, I asked one special friend what happened to her. She said it was too hard for her. Too hard for her????

Friends are great for the good times, but you nourish friends so they are there for you in the hard times. Needless to say, I re-evaluated my friendships; which ones to put time and energy into, and which not.

How about you?

    Cancer is an evil disease to watch. It robbed me of my dad just over a yaer ago and I really hate to see anyone have to say goodbye to someone they love.

    I have stage IV floor of mouth cancer. I had surgery one month ago and start radiation and chemo in a couple of weeks. I’ve had amazing support from family, church community and friends. Two of my closest friends have been in touch on a daily basis. They send frequent phone texts, which was the only way I could communicate right after my surgery. They have made an effort to visit me at least twice a week. I owe my peace of mind to all the prayers and support I’ve received from so many.
