A Letter to a Woman Who Offered Me Some Hope (Letter #5)

Hi Emilee! It’s Laken.

I wanted to write you a letter to thank you for donating your wigs to me.

I will never forget the day we met. I can remember my mom and sister crying after you prayed for me.  That was a special moment for us.

Your positivity and encouragement made me feel like I will be able to beat cancer like you did.

I’m getting to the point in my treatment where my hair is starting to fall out, and I’m really excited to try your wigs.

I will take good care of them, and it is my hope that I can continue the cycle of passing them along to someone else in need one day.

Because of you, I’m going to feel more beautiful during my fight!

Love, Laken

      Oh Laken! You’ve made my day! It was such a joy to meet you and your mom that day. I haven’t stopped praying for you since then. I’m so inspired by you. Keep writing because you are encouraging so many through this journey. I’m so proud of you!
