Small Town Friends

I grew up in a small town, one square mile, with one traffic light.

Just outside of town is all agricultural.

Some of it is even Amish

It’s beautiful.

Population in our town is roughly 1,200 people.

This means we have a greater population of cows than people.

When you make friends in this town, you tend to stay in touch even if you leave town.

I have many of those friends.  I’ve known them since we were little kids.

One such friend lived across the street from me.  We were at each other’s houses all the time.

We played in my backyard, or on her back porch (when it rained).

Then her family moved to the other side of town (not that far away) but being in different grades we didn’t hang out as much anymore.

Then we both moved away.

But we stayed in touch.

A few days ago, I learned that she was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer.

Small Cell Ovarian Carcinoma.

Tomorrow she begins treatment.

She will spend 3 days on intense chemo, and then have 3 weeks of rest.

This cycle will be repeated 6 times.

I said this was a small close town, and it is.  Friends of Amy’s have begun a fundraiser to help her with medical costs.

With this fight in front of her, the last thing we all want is for her to stress about how she’s going to pay for her treatment.

 Clicking the picture will take you to her fundraiser site.

Medical Expenses for Amy

We love you Amy!

Fight this!

Get better!
