Dear Ronnie

I once told you that I thought you were such a wise woman and after reading your comments on the different ways all of us handle cancer, I think it even more so.

You put this so well, but you forgot to add two important things you told me so many months ago, when your support kept me going, just after I was diagnosed . . . the first was that you were doing whatever brought you joy and the second was that you said that you were acquainted with an old couple who had survived the concentration camps in Europe and their advice was to make plans for the future - just keep making plans. Your telling me this made a great difference in how I have handled having lymphoma and I think it might to a great many of us facing NHL.
