I’m not asking for help or for anything at all. I simply felt compelled to post this here.
My friend Melanie is the strongest person, both mentally and physically, and has the biggest heart, of anyone I know. She's accomplished things, and taken risks, that I'll likely ever only dream of. In the six years I've known her, she's always been there when I've needed to talk or to help out when life has been turned upside down by a new baby. (Here she is when Austin was just a few days old.) And she cooks a mean four-course meal for 14!
She faces two challenges right now, here's her story. As I said, I'm not asking for help, I just wanted to share.
