    Ways to say THANK YOU!

    I was diagnosed last July with breast cancer. I underwent 4 months of chemo and I am 4 weeks out from my bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. Family, friends, former co-workers have come out in a big way to support me and my family. We have received meals during chemo on every chemo day and the day after, meals everyday since my surgery in January, rides for my children to and from activities, suppportive texts/emails/cards, fruit baskets and gift cards to restaurants, etc. I am truly appreciative and overwhelmed with everyones generosity and support. I am looking for a special way to say thank you! Any thoughts on a special poem, prayer or creative way to say thank you! I have done note cards and emails but it just doesn't seem enough! Thanks!

      How about a party where you invite all these wonderful people and let them meet each other? Make a big thank you speech and dance the night away. Let them see that all their kindness worked.

      I like @Clyde 's idea, I done that after I was done. I planned it for a month or so. I was done first of April with treatment, planned a big cookout at our house for Memorial Day. Had a house and patio full. Smoked some pork butt and ribs, had a really good time.

      Dear DYTYBR,

      I was going to suggest a BBQ where all your friends get to meet as well. It's simple, uncomplicated and heartfelt!

      Yes I thought a big party would be fun early summer. I still have 6 weeks of radiation to go starting next week and it seems yet so far away but I can start planning. Thank you!

      Or maybe you can participate in a walk for the cure and chip in let's say $5 for each person that helped you. Put it all on a fancy scroll to carry with you the day you walk.

      We had the same support when my husband was first diagnosed and had surgery and chemo. After chemo ended and he was beginning to feel better we had an afternoon lunch and afternoon of March madness basketball watching. We invited everyone and anyone to come join us and we were able to say thank you to all. I did all the food myself (I do love to cook:) and we enjoyed good food, good company and a great time with great friends for which we are so appreciative.
