The phone rang. I pushed end call. I didn’t have time to answer the phone. Don’t people know to text? The phone rang again. I looked at the name. I pushed voicemail. I went finished making dinner. The phone rang again the same caller. I answered. That call changed everything.
The voice on the other line was small. It was quiet it was using words but not in the right order. I looked back at the phone to see if the caller was the person I knew. The crazy, funny, hilarious, take on the world girl that I have known for a lifetime. It wasn’t, but on that day it wasn’t. It was a voice saying words I didn’t understand words I didn’t want to understand. Sentences that started with Cancer.
I have never been so scared in my life, but I had to be strong. I just listened. Then this voice took over my mouth and words like we got this. We can beat this. We will accomplish this together just like we have walked down ever path together we will rise above this one. There wasn’t anything that could stop us then or now.
That night I got off the phone, and I had two choices cry or plan for a revolution. I planned the best revolution ever. I was going to be the most supportive friend on Earth.
I know we all struggle with the question “What do you buy someone with cancer?” It isn’t a birthday or anniversary, and there may not be a card, but it is an important struggle that should be met with something important. I look for gifts that said, “I care, and I love you.” I realized several things about Cancer as my best friend has struggled to kick its butt that I will share with you. The hardest thing for her was how she felt. She still wanted to be everything to everyone, but she didn’t have the strength. When she looked in the mirror the person looking back wasn’t the person she used to be. That person didn’t look the same. She began to get depressed so finding a gift that made her feel good one that looked good became important to me.
I wanted her to see the beautiful woman I saw. I am sure you also want to get the best present, one that reminds your friend or relative that they are beautiful. The Wrapped in Love collection offers fashionable clothing and accessories for women with cancer or those convalescing, including wraps, head wraps, and other fashion accessories to provide warmth, comfort, beauty, style, and dignity.
I wanted her to have something to keep her warm. I considered the wrap created by Karen MacDonald to be like an external hug. I wanted her to have something beautiful to remind her that I may not be there with her all the time but I am thinking of her.
The best part is
Wrapped in Love has great gifts for cancer patients going through chemo. Their front zip cover-ups are easy to put on and chemo port accessible to wear during chemotherapy, or pretty enough to wear out and about. This was a struggle for my friend, and she didn’t want anyone to know she had cancer so having clothing that was functional, soft, and pretty made her feel instantly better. Each item incorporates a flower in tribute to Karen’s mother who loved gardening.
We love to share some thoughtful gifts for someone with cancer, so I prepared a gift basket and a Wrapped in Love cover-up. My daughter was so excited to deliver our sweet surprise to our neighbor, and she loved it!
