It's come to pass that my mentor (a landscape architect), my peer and friend is dying from cancer. It just had to be breast cancer. Interductal carcinoma, diagnosed too late.
She is the parent to a 14 year old girl who excels at school, has a fierceness about her that is ALL her mother and a tenderness of heart that is unbelievable for someone dealt such a bum hand. She is the wife to an Englishman who's heart is bigger than his body. She is my friend, my mentor and supporter. She is/was such an inspiration and light in this world.
It hurts so much and makes me incredibly sad. If you want to read about it, go here. If you want to help... tell me.
