Happy Birthday to Sue!

My email pal, Sue, and I have been writing back and forth on a regular basis for some time, comparing our treatment experiences and sharing life observations in general. So, even though I had only met her in person once before, I was happy to drive to Kingston yesterday to attend her birthday celebration. I invited Jennifer (an extrovert who has no problem blending in with a room full of people she doesn’t know) along for the drive.

It was wonderful to meet Sue’s friends and to see what a great support network she has. Her condo was lovingly decorated with purple balloons, banners and flowers. People brought a wide assortment of delicious finger foods and Happy Birthday cupcakes.
Jennifer took this picture of me & Sue. As you can see, Sue is wearing her Fuck Cancer hat, which really just says it all.
