My Best Friend Saved My Life February 23, 2012 – Posted by enigma74
I met my best friend when I was fourteen. We were in ninth grade – goofy, awkward teenage girls.

We stayed close for many years and then back around 2001 we drifted apart. She and I didn’t really talk at all for about six years.

Then, at thirty-three years old, I found out that I had breast cancer. She came back into my life like a force of nature. She cleaned my home, cared for my child, and took care of me. She bathed me, clothed me, gave me my medicine, and found creative ways to make food more edible when my mouth was so devastated by chemo that I could barely swallow. She saved my life and, with no thought of reward or recognition, and she did it all while having a fulltime job as well as two kids and a husband to care for!

To this day she still won’t accept that she forever changed my world.

This seemed like a wonderful forum to pass on a kindness story that never gets the recognition it deserves because she just won’t hear it. Thank you for reading; it does my heart good to know I’ve sung her praises.
