While we celebrate Independence Day this weekend, it is not without a sad heart because we have lost another member of our fold. Ann Everson Maree had a blog, which her husband will continue, and her tagline was “I may have cancer, it does not have me.” We never spoke, but metastatic breast cancer made us sisters, and losing her is a reminder that this stupid disease can send our life into a sudden downward spiral.
All of us who know this unwelcome intruder grieve for the loss of another metsister whom we loved no less because we never met. The Internet makes friends of strangers, and with stage IV cancer, it makes some of us sisters who feel love for each other that many people would not understand.
May you dance into a beautiful light, dear Ann with love from all your metsisters.
