2017 Participant/Breast Cancer Survivor
June Key West, FL
I didn’t really know what to expect being selected to go to Key West on a retreat with other cancer survivors. Whatever I had in my head was so far exceeded by Little Pink, the Amy’s, and everyone involved. I wasn’t sure I belonged there, I felt out of place and emotional about money and cancer. I am struggling financially, along with the cancer diagnosis, finalizing my divorce after 5 years of being separated, not receiving child support, trying to help my children deal with their father’s issues, graduation, my mom’s Alzheimers, life. I was, well I guess am, trying to hold everything together. It’s ok, I’m ok, I just need to do my best. I thought I was alone, I learned that I am not. Everyone has a story, a journey of ups and downs, spirals and zig zags, what’s important is getting there. I just need to follow my very twisty path and believe it will all work out the way it is supposed to. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your Little Pink family.
The people I met are amazing, beautiful, giving, generous people. Social media has kept us in contact, which is wonderful. The people involved with Little Pink are so selfless, kind and generous. I was blown away by their friendship, love, and support. I cannot say enough positive things about Little Pink and hope to one day make an impact on someone’s family as the volunstars did for me and my family.
