Kristy is an amazing person. I met her 2 and a half years ago when I joined the Plymouth Playgroup. She was always such a welcoming person and wanted to make life better for other moms. She got sick in January and we all received an e-mail that she had gone through an emergency abdominal surgery. Weird, I thought, what a fluke thing to happen. Then we got the second e-mail. This next one explained that when she left the hospital they had told her something that would change her life. They told her she had Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin large B cell lymphoma. They told that her they would be treating her with Chemo. I cannot imagine the blow that must have been. I cannot imagine explaining cancer to my 3 year old as she will have to explain to hers.
I saw Kristy at a playdate the other day and we were talking about the photos I took of her and her son the previous summer, and how she wanted to get that family session in, but it looked like she was going to be bald soon. Bald soon... I can't imagine losing my hair. I can't imagine having cancer either, but losing my hair too?! We chatted a bit and decided to do her family session this week. It was a little last minute, but isn't that how life is?!
