Support Group

It's been one week since I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, and it has been crazy. Doctor's appointments, a sore neck from the biopsy, and everything in between. But I have felt so loved. Seriously.

One of the coolest things about getting cancer has been the overwhelming love I've received from SO MANY PEOPLE. Talk about a neato blessing. It feels like that scene at the end of It's a Wonderful Life where everyone comes in and shows Jimmy Stewart just how much they appreciate and love him. Yeah, multiply all of those warm fuzzies times 300 and that's what I feel like I've received. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH! All of the notes, and likes, and messages, and flowers, and e-mails, and cards, and gifts, and visits, and food have made a HUGE difference. Anytime I would start to feel down or depressed, I would just open up my email or facebook and there was an inbox full of support. YOU ALL ARE AMAZING. I can't even say how huge of an impact each message made.

One of the best ways you can keep supporting me is to keep in touch! I have a lot of time on my hands, and I don't like thinking about chemotherapy very much, so write me letters or emails! Reading about someone's life is distracting and helpful, and much more interesting than my what's going on in my life right now. And especially looking forward, things are just going to get harder, please keep sending love and messages!

So write me about anything! What are you doing? Do you have projects you're working on? How do you like your job? What was something cool that happened this week? What are you going to do for the weekend? And I'll write you back! 

(Facebook messages or e-mail are both great)

  1. Hi SarahKay! You are just a light! And just one of my favorite people that I've gotten to meet through Katie and BYU. I am cheering for you and sending love and prayers your way. I'd love to send you an invite to read Katie's missionary blog! That would keep you busy for a moment or two. I'm out of town for work the next few weeks, but would love to drop by a meal or whatever would be helpful when I get back. In the meantime, hugs your way as you travel this bumpy road...but I know it must be wonderful to have your sweetheart by your side and know that the Lord wants you well too! Send me your email and I'll send you a blog invite. I'm at Love to you, Christie Lewis
