“It was a delightful surprise and honestly I was touched to receive it.... 😍 As one does I had some favourites but Tbh it all pretty much hit the spot which I think is impressive given you may not know all that much about me…..My particular favourites were the blanket, notebook and chap sticks. Oh and the bag, I really like the bag... plus the strength & peace glass stones... I like stones like that.
I think to be fair I have to put some context around my chemo; it's topical so applied as a cream locally to a sensitive area. However to be straight the post application has not been pleasant, especially as the chemo had spread and then the burnt area got infections but now I am finally on the way with healing and moving freely in the last two days. I tell you this as I don't consider myself a real cancer warrior compared to what others have so not sure I deserve this care package.... but still thrilled I did 😁”
