Lil Ducky’s Journey- Long Road

Okay, this title sounds weird, but out of respect for my friend, I changed her name, just in case.

It was back in November when I found out my best friend (aka, Lil Ducky)has leukemia. Its been a tough road already. I thought this would bring us friends together as a united front, but its only tearing us apart. There is more aspects here that are going to be difficult than I thought. We’re all there for her though when it counts, and thats all that matters.

I’m so thankful I have been able to visit her, and sometimes we can get so caught up in what we’re doing, it’s like nothing is wrong. But of course, everything is. My lil duck has the misfortune of suffering generally all the RARE side effects of AML leukemia. She never stops telling me how shes going to kick it’s butt though, and can’t wait for summer.

Since we have found out, we have started a committee for fundraising and it’s amazing how the community has come together for this beautiful family. I thank God we live in Canada, were we do not have priate health care, but I’m sure with the help from these amazing people, we would find a way anyway.

Anyway, I’ll probably be posting more, and if anyone ever wants to talk about ANYTHING, say so in the comments, and I’ll tell you my email or we can connect somehow. :)
