Friend and Daughter

I lost my best friend to breast cancer in 1982. She almost made it to five years cancer free but then it returned. She left behind two sons who were 7 and 9 years old. Then in 1997, I lost my mother to colon cancer. She was 82 and had been fighting the cancer for more than ten years. I wear my bracelets to keep Kay and my mom, Helen, nearby.
