I had just started my treatment and was settling down to reading my book as it was going to be a few hours when completely out of the blue a lovely lady with a beautiful smile came up and handed me a gift pack and said this is for you .
I was sitting in a pod with four other people , each one received a package .
Everyone’s face lit up on receipt of their gift , and all of a sudden the energy changed in the pod and people were smiling and so grateful for the lovely surprise that uplifted us all . We were made to feel special .
The gift package was filled with really lovely and thoughtful goodies . What really touched me , and actually brought tears to me eyes , was the card that was enclosed with the gift . It was handwritten with a lovely personal message and I felt that the writer really understood how I was feeling .
The cancer journey can be scary and lonely at times and I felt Als Pals understood this and I will never forget the impact of that gift and sentiment on one of those days – you are doing an amazing job Als Pals ….thank you xxx
