I don’t know how people like you do it, Crystal. Not only are you a mom, but you’re blatting one the hardest battles ever. Know that if there is anything you ever need, please feel free to shoot me a line. Your strength and inspiration is overwhelming, and it helps to put things into focus for us who are lucky enough not to have been bitten by Cancer. You inspire me to love harder all of those who are near me.You’re amazing, and I’m thinking of you today.
