Wow! For those of you that are not aware, there was a wonderfully written article on my cancer journey featured in the Toronto Star this Sunday, as well as online today. Ever since this story went public, my phone and email have been going non-stop. Literally, the light on my phone just keeps flashing! I am overwhelmed by the support I have been receiving. I cannot thank all of you enough for your thoughtfulness, heartfelt wishes, and for sharing your advice and personal stories with me. You have all touched my heart. And it is very cool that I have a ton of new followers on my blog and a crazy amount of views in the last two days. Thanks, you guys are awesome!
So many of you have personally reached out to me and shared your stories of strength and courage, as well as offered kind words and wonderful advice. I sit there and cry when I read your words, good tears of course. I truly thank all of you from the bottom of my heart, and I continue to stand in utter amazement at the compassion and kindness of complete strangers. I would like to respond to each and every one of you directly and hope to do so over the next couple of days and weeks, so please bear with me. Like I said earlier, I am overwhelmed by all of your emails, comments, and support. This is exactly why I choose to write this blog, and I cannot believe the type of impact my story has had. I am honoured and humbled to know that so many are inspired or touched by my journey. Thank you.
Also, I stand in disbelief of how many have contacted me to request future articles to be written on me and my story in various outlets, the free goodies I have received (and who can resist free stuff), and the fact that I have been contacted by old friends from highschool! Unbelievable and so cool! I am speechless (which doesn’t happen all that often). So, Christian Louboutin, if you are reading this blog, I am a size five boot (in case you were wondering) 😉 And if anyone wants to invite me to galas and fancy dinners for cancer, feel free.
But really, what I would like to get out there is that I am incredibly grateful for all of you and your heartwarming support. You all make this world a better place. Please keep the emails and comments coming. I will continue to fight the fight and hopefully do my part to keep inspiring and motivating others not to give up. Let us fight together for targeted cancer research and funding, more options for metastatic cancer patients, and a cure. One cancer death is one too many. I will never choose to accept it. Never.
With all my love,
