Good evening all.  I am the adult son of a current TNBC patient.
This note was well received last year at the first of several infusions spent with my parents. There are many words on this forum more skilled than mine ... but hopefully these are still useful to a TNBC family member - kind regards - Gerald


Dear Mom,

In the ridges of Pennsylvania
Travel is so often up and down.
Getting somewhere takes a while
But each sunrise cures a frown.

When we were young you taught us
More than writing and counting 1,2,3
You showed us:  steep ground takes one step at a time
and that God is bigger than the things we see

And so I scratch down these few short lines
No matter the incline of the hill:
This note is just a reminder
That we love you ... and we always will.

Love,
Gerald
