I told Vickie back then that whenever she makes in back to the States to Ohio, to look me up and that we would meet up in person. Ok, this wait was long overdue, 5 years later I get a message from Vickie saying that she is coming home to Ohio during the summer. I immediately responded that we must get together while she's in town and we need to make this happen! The time came and we decided to meet and drive halfway to Norwalk, Ohio from where I live and halfway from her hometown. Vickie picked the location of this nice coffee shop, Sheri's Coffee House where we hugged, sat and chat for awhile. We noticed a pink ribbon painted in a wall mural inside the shop, and I inquired if the owner of the coffee house was a survivor... so awesome that she was a long-term breast cancer survivor too! Vickie, Thank you so much for meeting me and strengthening our special sister bond, I love you!
