A Flower with a Different Purpose

That’s a cute flower, right?

It would be cute on a sweater, a jacket, a hairclip, anything but…

a sleep cap.

I just had to dress up this white, clinical-looking sleep cap because it just wasn’t a happy-looking thing to wear without it.

 

You see, this is an adult sleep cap for my dear friend who lives across the street from me, and she’s going to need it because she’s getting her head shaved today, not by choice really, but out of necessity.  Her hair is falling out in clumps from chemo.

 

Life was normal a little over a month ago until a her doctor said those life-altering words, “You have breast cancer.”  It’s something no one ever wants to hear.  I hate that she had to hear it.  I hate that she has cancer.  I hate that her daughters have a mom who is sick.

… but nothing can change what’s happening. 

 

She has cancer, and we’ll get through this together.  She’ll go to her doctor’s appointments and get her treatments, and we, as a community of friends and family members, will take care of everything else. 

We’ll bring her family food.

We’ll get her kids off the bus.

We’ll clean her house.

We’ll try to make light of the situation, and tell her she went all “Britney Spears” on us.

We’ll do anything and everything we can to make this easiER.

 

Please add Sharon to your prayer list.

It’s what friends do, and I know she would do the same for any of us :)
