Yesterday a fellow Ovarian Cancer survivor friend of mine put a photograph on facebook of her when she had no hair.
The comments i’ve had have been amazing as unlike my pretty friends, i’m a manly looking woman and been bald really didn’t suit me. Also been with a man who told me i was ugly, looked like a man ( which i knew anyway) and i was off putting, didn’t do a lot for my self esteem.
Look at me now you awful man, bet you wish you’d not beaten me up and threatened to stab me and almost threw me down the stairs, just because i had cancer!!
Anyway one friend in particular my lovely Sarah, wrote me a poem which i read this morning and promptly cried. Its such a lovely poem and she said such nice things about me too ( no idea why but the cheques in the post ;-) )
I feel i’d like to share this wonderful little poem with you all and also so a massive THANK YOU to Sarah and all my wonderful friends. I love you all xxx
“Tracey 'Wardill' Ford you're such a star
That shines your light both near and far
Your light shines from you inside to out
You're a special lady without a doubt
You're past has made you what you are
Not always a good thing though, ha ha ha :-)
You've survived so much in your life
Fun times and laughter and even some strife
True friends support you through ups and downs
Those that don't, well they're the clowns
I've learn't a lot from having you as my mate
And thanks to you, I've become a right repribate!
I'm proud to have you as a friend
And may our friendship never end.”
