True friends

Hi All,

What is a friend? Someone who we can rely on in good times and bad, someone who is loyal and trustworthy and can count on you just as much as you can count on them.

I have a friend like that who is very poorly at the moment and is waiting for a diagnosis. Steph was there for me all through my illness and never left my side. It hurts so much to see her the way she is at the moment but she will always have me as I know I will always have her. Friends are people who don't hurt each other, people that you can trust always.  I am fortunate to have a friend like that on Maggie's and they know who they are. This person has become a person I can trust with everything and is there for me as I would be for them. Without Maggie's I would not have this person in my life. Thank you.
