Sometimes, you don't even have to "meet" them in real life - even just knowing them via their online presence is enough to have an impact.
So it is with some special ladies who are part of WCSUK.
One of these ladies is sadly no longer with us. She passed away last year. Cancer yet again robbed a family of a much loved mother and wife.
She was a member of our private chat group and even as the cancer slowly took its hold on her she continued to post in the group and when she moved to a hospice, her family kept us informed about how she was settling in.
It was a sad day for us all when we heard the news of her passing. Her smiling face in the photo she used as her Facebook profile pic will remain in our hearts for a long time.
Of course, deep down you know that cancer will take some people. But for it to take someone from WCSUK, our little group of ninja womb warriors, was hard for many of us to bear; those of us that had become close to our peach sister.
But, we moved on, as you do. More fighters joined the group, ladies at the start of their cancer journey. We had to stop dwelling on the negative and focus on the positive, for them and the others in the group who are still fighting.
And we are all fighters, each and every one of us. We are fighting this nasty thing that has come into our lives and our bodies.
Some of us fight quietly, in our own way. Drawing on some inner strength that maybe we didn't know we had.
Some of us put on our best steel toecapped boots and are determined to kick the s**t outta cancer!
Our motto in WCSUK is "no one fights alone" - thats the whole reason behind why I started the group. I didn't want other women to feel as alone and scared as I had done 3 years ago.
So to all the peach sisters out there - keep fighting and know that you are never alone.
