megliam ,

Thank you for the tears and for the laughter 💜

August 20th 2022 I lost my 4 year old niece, two weeks shy of her 5th birthday to cancer. We didn’t even know she had it. It all happened so fast and so furious my head is still spinning and I’m in a sort of time warp I think. Finding things to read or listen to from an aunts point of view are near impossible. I stumbled upon this podcast in my desperate search, and it is helping me so much. This podcast is helping me navigate this darkness. 💜#Jeraleesjourney
