Lory’s Warrior Cap

Cancer has returned with a vengeance to my dear, dear friend Lory.  She asked me knit her a soft yarn version of the football helmet hat I made a friend recently. Here I’m modeling the cap I came up with. Lory calls it her Cancer Warrior Cap as she feels she is in a real fight with cancer.

Lory Sanchez 004

You know Lory from reading this blog as I often call her “my computer guru”. Many of you have met her.

I met Lory when I worked at Alamosa High School library in Colorado.  She was the one responsible for my career change from administrative work to computer work by suggesting I take a correspondence course in PC repair. Throughout the course she helped and encouraged me.  From that I got my job as Technology Manager for the public library in Alamosa, where I worked till I retired in 2007.  I owe Lory a lot as she has always been there for me with work problems.  Many a night she stayed with me at work till midnight trying to fix a networking problem or web page challenge.

Lory is my champion and hero.  She has the sweetest soul of any one I have ever met.  She has battled cancer twice before and she’ll battle this bout with the same positive attitude she has always had.  She is always smiling, laughing and takes time to comfort other cancer patients. Practicing her faith is her sustainer. 

I ask that you all say prayers for my dear friend, Lory, as she begins chemo once again.

Remember, you are loved.
