Touched by cancer
May 6th, 2010 by Regina Brett
What a moving experience signing books tonight at The Gathering Place, which offers support services for anyone touched by cancer.
Two women asked me to sign books in memory of their sister, Penny. Then I met Penny's daughter and mother and we all ended up in tears.
One woman asked me to sign one for her husband who has cancer. "He's just so angry," she said, then started to cry.
A few women were bald from chemo, a few others wore wigs. I showed them the picture of me bald that I keep in my wallet. It reminds me that every day is a good day. Even that day was.
No, life isn't fair, but it's still good.
