Childhood Disrupted

childhood disrupted
by a fight against cancer
changed a young girl's life

chemo and amputation
renewed her for all to love

    Dane Ann. I hope you're okay. I heard the name of your town in the news tonight as devastated by the flood. I am also worried about Carolyn as she is all alone. I talked to her the other night and she was so sick that she had to hang up and go to the bathroom. She says she had lost four pounds in two days. She didn't seem to be too disturbed about the flood though. She said she had seen worse. Love, Joyce
