Sometimes words fail me

No, that's not right.

Sometimes I fail the words.

If I could find them and put them in the right order, everyone would comprehend exactly how I feel about Nina Nelson - lucky_life - and her mission.

Since I seem unable to do that (writer's nightmare), I will just say that I am humbled.

And honored.

I had no idea you went through all that! My college roommate (and dear friend) was diagnosed with breast cancer last January (2007). I went to her second chemo appointment with her (I believe either her husband or her dad went to the first one). There was a young girl there at the same time -- she couldn't have been more than 21. She seemed so relaxed, so at peace.

My friend already had two daughters so there was no fear about future children -- but her oldest daughter was panicked about her mom dying. It was a very long year, but today, she is cancer free at 39. We talked about doing the breast cancer walk this summer, but it didn't work out. However, someday, I want to do it with her -- the two of us celebrating her life!

Your story definitely touched me, and I write this with tears in my eyes...I'm so glad you survived!

It's such an amazingly huge gesture.

That is so great. Tomorrow, when I'm downstairs and near my purse, I'll be sure to pledge my financial support. Isn't Nina just a phenom? I heart both of you.

Thanks, Kelly.

Nina is my hero.
