My dear friend gave it to me as we finished our daily walk. We are both cancer survivors and use the time during our daily walks to edify, encourage and support each other knowing that this is a safe and confidential time. I have recently had another health scare and my dear friend also is dealing with a chronic illness. We are the matriarchs in our families and often have to hide our fears and feelings since we are the “strongest chords”. We know we can talk about anything and not encounter a judgmental or condescending attitude.
