So ... if she couldn't have a birthday celebration without chemo, she decided she wouldn't have chemo without a birthday celebration.
I bought her a big cake, parceled up some napkins, paper plates, forks & a knife & she took her birthday into the chemo unit & had a party there!!
Those of you who know me on Facebook may have seen the photos & will already know how successful this was. I was afraid that some people may be offended at the prospect of "frivolity" in such a sensitive place, but no one was. The staff & patients all shared her cake & wished her a very happy birthday.
She has asked me to thank everyone who has been so kind, empathetic & supportive since her diagnosis 18 months ago & particularly to thank those cc friends who posted birthday greetings on my Facebook Wall.
THANK YOU for making my lovely sister's BIG BIRTHDAY such a rip-roaring success.
