My friend Brooke-

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Brooke's 14, she has cancer(I can't remember what type) and she had it removed once and it came back, she's in hospital at the moment. Please keep her in your thoughts, I can't even begin to imagine what it's like for her. She started college last year(along with me) and 6 months later she was diagnosed, she was in and out of hospital for about 7 months, she came back to school this year but it came back. I hope she's going to be OK.

Wow I didnt know cancer could hit someone so young.....I'm really sorry to hear about your friend Sam. I hope she gets over this and can get better so she can live a normal life. All that worry at her age is just not fair. Many prayers and vibes for Brooke, her family and you! :angel2:

You know I didnt even think about that...I'm just so used to hearing about it with older my grandma and Lyle's for instance. It's horrible for it to happen to anyone.....I wish so much they'd find a cure!

I really hate that, when young people get so sick with such diseases. It really makes you wonder why.

I hope she recovers completely and quickly as soon as possible. Do let her know that she has people from all over the world pulling for her.

Sam. your friend Brooke is in my thoughts. I had leukemia when I was ten, and the doctors gave my parents very little hope for my survival. Guess what - I'll be 47 in May, and I'm still around to make life difficult for others. One of my best friends died of encephalitis when we were 11. She's still somebody I think of all the time. There is absolutely no way of knowing what will happen, but you can make a big difference by being there for your friend, listening to her hopes and fears. She might survive this, and she might not, but having somebody to talk to honestly can make a very big difference. My impression is that you are a "tough cookie", i.e., somebody who has had a hard life, but is able to deal with adversities. You are going to have be strong for your friend right now, but you have a lot of people right here to fall back on if you're feeling overwhelmed, fearful, discouraged, and so on. Don't hesitate to use personal messaging, or to post problems here.
