    Good luck charm.

    My friends and I have been talking about whether we carry something with us to our doctor's appointments and treatment as a good luck charm. I carry a photo of my Grandfather who raised me from the day I was born. He always picked me up whenever things went bad and he always told me he'd never let me fall. So I am posing the question to all of you. Do you have a good luck charm or memento you carry with you?

      My Dad always picked up pennies that were heads up, he said it was good luck. So I walked out of the Dr's office the first day I was diagnosed 24 years ago, seen a heads up penny, I still have it today, along with a bunch more. I have three that are taped together, they go with me every time.

      Silly? Maybe, but it sure can't hurt....unless you forget they're in your pocket during a scan!!

      I have a stuff sheep named Liam. He was a souvenir from a trip to Ireland. He has long gangly legs and a smile that you can't help smiling back at him. The staff know him by name. My niece gave me a stuffed ladybug. They went to all my treatments. Liam now has "friends" and "relatives" from Ireland who immigrated. Sometimes one of them joins the usuals at treatment. I will have to post his picture so you can smile.

      Derby girl... When I knew what I had, prior to doctor even saying it.... I asked God to please take my hand and lead me to where He wanted me to be because I was scared of all the unknown. He took my hand right that momment.... The fear went away. And through two years of surgery, then chemo he never let go. Then I figured out that he'd had my hand my entire life. I'm 7 years from DX and still cancer free!

      Your question brought tears to my eyes! I bought a goodie bag of things to my treatments, and I carried a picture of my kids so I could look at it if I was having a rough time. Just looking at their smiling faces helped me so much!
