A beautiful Christmas gift from caring people
On December 1, I had the honor of sharing Ali's story with an incredible group of compassionate, caring individuals who gave a beautiful donation to Ali’s foundation as a Christmas gift to their amazing physicians. It was emotional, it was therapeutic and it was the beginning of a new friendship between the Ali Shae Pink Rose Foundation, and our new Platinum Sponsor, the Wyoming Surgical Associates.
I was invited to their Christmas party to speak of Ali and the Foundation. I have never thought of myself as a “speaker” or a source of inspiration and while Ali’s story is beautiful it is also a very difficult one to tell. Needless to say I was sweating and holding back tears-praying I would make sense.
I was so grateful for the nurses/staff who met me at the door, hugged me warmly and made me feel at ease. It gave me a window into how they treat each and every one of their patients.
I am happy to report, I got through the presentation! Yes, I cried. And I felt something new afterwards: a feeling of connection. I am so touched by the support of this community, who together with the Pink Rose Foundation is building an incredible resource for children and family touched by cancer.
