Art has come with me to half my trips to Hong Kong. We are both extremely grateful for all the help that we were given in that city and for the numerous friends we have there. These are only a few of them.
Mike and Gloria . . . Mike offered his home to Art and me after meeting us one time! He very graciously allowed us to take over his guest room and his guest bathroom for a week while we waded through diagnosis and first treatments. He even cooked dinner for us on Valentine's Day! His girlfriend, Gloria, joined us.
Unimed Medical Institute. Highly recommend!
Only a few of the many helpful medical staff members at Unimed.
Dr. Louis WC Chow. A highly qualified surgical oncologist. I couldn't recommend anyone else. He knows what he is doing and very obviously cares for his patients.
My beloved friend, Sue who now lives in Hong Kong. Sue was one of the first people I met in China back in 1989. A cancer survivor herself, Sue has been a spiritual advisor, and cancer consultant. She has been a true friend every step of the way. While we are sad that it took cancer to reunite us like this, we are both grateful for the new stage our friendship is in.
Holly and I met in California when our children were babies. We would have never thought that we would reunite in Hong Kong! Holly moved to Washington State about the same time I moved to China, so we had lost track of each other. Once again, sad that it took the cancer to reunite us, but grateful for new life in friendship. Holly has been extremely gracious and welcoming each and every time I've been in HK.
Jim and XR. Jim . . . long-time friend and brother! He and Art have been friends for more years than I know. Jim has helped with transportation logistics, met me at the airport, fed me, etc. I was very happy to meet his fiancee . . . they are getting married in October. Art will be best man at their wedding.
Suzanne . . . long time friend in Shenzhen. We frequently spoke to each other and she was able to come into the city to meet me for lunch. Very gracious, very loving and a woman with a huge heart for God and a huge heart for the young women of China.
Diane is a new friend, referred by Joan. Diane was diagnosed with cancer in HK around November of last year. Her treatment plan includes surgery first, followed by chemo and radiation. She is a delightful woman of God and we enjoyed our visit with each other.
_I believe we all have a story. This blog records my story and how I've lived with breast cancer both as a primary disease and a terminal disease. I believe this is all a part of God's story for my life. This blog unapologetically includes all areas of my life: my faith, my family and my advocacy for change in the metastatic breast cancer world.
