Cancer is a mean, rotten, ugly bastard. For the most part, words escape me when I think of cancer and what it has done to people I love. My mom defeated it more than 20 years ago and is still alive and well. Her husband, my stepdad, didn't win that battle and he has been gone 10 years now. My mom and I were his caregivers to the very last minute. One of the hardest things I've ever done, but I am so glad I was there.
Now, my husband's daughter has breast cancer-stage 4. She is just way too young to have to deal with all that. Her kids are way too young, her husband is way too young. She is beautiful and brave and fights like hell to defeat this cancer monster. Our hearts, prayers, thoughts...are all with her every day.
It is so hard to see your children suffer and feel helpless to do anything about it. So I did what little bit I could to add a little warm fuzziness to her battle. I knitted chemo caps. I wish it was more. I'm putting the patterns here for anyone else who might want to use them. For Kelly, bravely battling to slay the cancer dragon. We love you.
