I don't know Tuesday Fiona Witt, I have seen pictures even watched videos. I have read many posts describing her and ran across many fundraisers in her honor. Mostly I know that she lost an 8 month battle with neuroblastoma in January of this year. When I read about her story my heart aches. I can't imagine what her family and friends are going through. I pray that they find peace and I pray that the medical field finds a cure for all cancer.
There are no words that can mend a heart that has lost a child. My mom lost my sister when I was two years old and I still feel her absence and my Mom still can't talk about it. There is no greater pain. I wish everyday that I could do something to mend her heart. My mom didn't have a great support system. My biological father left, my family didn't help her cope and it wasn't until years later when she found a friend who had suffered in the same way that she had someone to talk to. That makes me sad in so many ways. We grew up not really knowing much about my sister - we just didn't talk about her and in that way we didn't honor her.
Today I would like to pay tribute to Tuesday, her family, to the people that surround them and support them through this very difficult time, to the people who have donated and keep donating on Tuesday's behalf and to all the people who talk about her and who love her. You are all so very special and are making a difference.
I pray that one day cancer is wiped out for good. That they find a cure soon that not another person is lost. Today is the Tuesday Blog Party.
