It wasn't until I was out at lunch time today, that I noticed it was Daffodil Day! On my way out of the store, I stopped to purchase my small bundle of daffodils. I chatted with the three ladies for a few minutes. I introduced the fact that I am a 11 1/2 year survivor and each one, in turn, told me their "survivor" age.
One lady, more than thirteen years, another 10 years and the last one, just two years. The 13 year survivor explained that her husband was now battling the disease and was terminal.
Today, if you see the daffodil display, think about your own survivor story or someone close to you, their story. Keep the hope alive and we can see that some people are able to survive this disease because of all the support which enables research through funding.
