DEAR ABBY: "Wants to Do the Right Thing" asked about using email to thank those who donated to a fund-raiser for her son, who has bone cancer. What's wrong with that?
I have been there. One of my twin boys was diagnosed with cancer at age 2.
I was grateful for all the help my family and friends gave me, but I did not always have the time or energy to devote to writing thank-you cards.
You really have to have experienced this kind of long-term stress and trauma to understand. It takes all your strength just get through each day without breaking down.
