This year my family had its first close brush with cancer. Thankfully, in just over two months life is back to normal for everyone involved, the the chance of recurrence is thought by doctors to be very low. We were lucky, but cancer never goes away, you just have to hope you die of old age before it comes back. To put it plainly, cancer sucks.
A few years ago I started stitching Lizzie*Kate’s Peace, Love and a Cure. And although it is dedicated to breast cancer (not the kind of cancer we dealt with, at least this time), it sort of feels like the right time to finish stitching this. So, it has been put back into my rotation and is my current computer stitching.
I hope desperately that my family, and your family, never have to deal with cancer again. But if we do, I can only hope that it will be as relatively painless as this experience was.
