Hi, it’s me, Jody. I’m writing a forward for this Video from Claire. (she’s reading it as you do, I’m not sending it to her first…)
I will NEVER forget the day that my girl came by my place, my backyard, to “drop a cheque” for our little adventure here. It made me think, “hello? E-transfer? Plus, it’s not urgent….I can front this….” NO…she “had” to come. I made tea.
As soon as she walked through the door, that fateful spring day, I knew something was wrong. MY pillar of strength, the woman who (in 2011) I barely knew…handed me a key to her house…seeing me go through life drama…. was in need.
She uttered the words “f*ck, I have cancer, it’s cancer…I could lose my foot, I will never run again.”.
I was in shock, she was in shock. I didn’t know what to say — so I hugged her. We cried. Then we talked. We really…really talked. I said, “let’s put the website on hold.” she said “I think, instead, I want to talk about it.”
She did. She is. We are. I’m so proud of you Claire. We are. WE ARE ALSO SO GLAD YOU ARE CANCER FREE!!! as of today….
Love your people….like we love Claire. THROUGH IT.
Jody (and Sarah…and our every-growing #mybackyard family)
