I FOUGHT LIKE A GIRL WITH CHERYL WITTER!
I was with CHERYL WITTER throughout her journey. I took Cheryl to her appointments, chemo, etc. I tried to make it fun for her and make her laugh (when it didn’t hurt). I would say, “Remember Dr. Boobs?” In the chemo suite, we had everyone laughing because of our irreverence, sometimes “trucker mouth,” and what we spoke of (we spent so many hours in there). Cheryl took pictures (or had me take pics) of each chemo session so you could see her progress.
The sad thing was seeing, meeting, and talking to people who knew they were not going to make it through. I had to try to keep my feelings in check when speaking to them. Cheryl and I met so many nice, wonderful, beautiful people, who, if they did not make it, are now God’s angels.
Cheryl and Troy were in town a week ago and we were at a birthday party of a friend that we attended last year (after her diagnosis and before her fight had begun). I mentioned it to her and said “Look how far you’ve come in a year Sweetie!” And do you know what she said? She said, “IT WAS EASY!” WHAT A CHAMP SHE IS.
I love Cheryl Witter as if she is my own sister or daughter, she is my best-est friend that I have in Iowa. I miss her so much and I am SO GLAD I was able to help her fight her way through this horrible disease. I am so happy her journey is over, she is back home in Wisconsin with her family. She’s working and her life is somewhat normal (her normal).
LOVE YOU CHERYL WITTER.
