22. Thank you Mrs. Edwards...I'm a cancer survivor.
Thanks to you and your husband for campaigning so vigorously. Hopeful and positive messages were so important to hear during the campaign.

I just wanted to say, as a cancer survivor myself, hang in there. I was young, 26 years old so it was difficult. I hope you don't find this presumptuous, but a little advice: don't be afraid to ask for help, don't always feel as though you have to strong for everyone else. I'm sure you'll be getting the best of health care. The nurses can be of tremendous help for alot of it. It's a scary diagnosis and there are days when it may seem overwhelming, but those days go by quickly.
I'll be thinking of you and your family and wish the best of health!
