My sister is dealing with cancer for a 3rd time. My heart is aching. This comes on the heels of being close to losing her less than 2 years ago. I am at a loss as to how to best support her now. She is not big on flowers and frivolous things, and last time I put together a pray book for her...but now I am struggling, I want to do something, anything to support her and I just don't know what. .

Epilogue

Posted by sallys

After sending my sister lots of "stuff" I was able to see and talk with her and she asked me to use my gift giving to charities around the globe who are providing basic needs to people, food, water, clothing...she said she has all she needs and more and it would honor her more than anything to help others. And so I will take back some of the abundant things I bought and refocus on doing something that would respect her wishes and warm her heart...what a gift she gave me - letting me know what means the most to her.
