Sometimes...You connect with someone in the most unlikely of places.
I typically don't respond to things on Freecycle, or Craigslist....Because as my hubby would say "We have ENOUGH STUFF!" But there are times I just can't help myself. :)
Something came up on Freecycle, and I responded, hoping that the item was still available....It was.
I responded with a pick up time using my personal e-mail address, which happens to say "Thriving with Neurofibromatosis" and gives a link to this blog....
The woman wrote me back, with a time to meet....but the e-mail continued, with a lengthy response about how she clicked on my link and was led here.
Her son was JUST diagnosed with NF last week and as she explained, she was overwhelmed, devastated and heartbroken. That is until she read blog post after blog post that proved to her, that this diagnosis is NOT the end.
Like a few weeks ago, when a letter was left on my van, from a mother distraught from this diagnosis, I have made a new friend. (Read that post HERE)
