2 Candles for Maureen: A Diary of an Incredible Friendship and a Tribute to a Soul Mate
Margaret had been diagnosed with a rare, aggressive type of breast cancer and desperately wanted to find someone else who had the same disease or who had survived it, as the prognosis was not good. This is the poignant story of two people who met through a cancer website and who supported each other by e-mail and telephone through very trying times and who met in person only once. It is a highly personal story that offers insight into how you can build a different kind of friendship and find happiness in each other, even in the face of adversity. Margaret Darling, a retired medical secretary, lives in Fife, Scotland, with her husband. Since recovering from cancer, she felt it was quite unusual to find an Internet friend and make such a connection as she did. She felt she had a story to tell, and this is the result.
