Hi Susan! I wanted to tell you about my granddaughter Serenity. She is 6 years old. She loves to listen to you in the mornings while I am driving her to school.

First of all she loves horses and is always delighted to hear you talk about your horses. One morning she had heard your ad about Banner Cancer Center. I was not paying much attention until she said (with a very excited voice) "Grammy! Did you hear what that lady that has horses said?" I said "no what did she say?"  Serenity replies "She said she lost both her parents to cancer at far too young of an age. That lady that has horses is just like me!"

Serenity was so touched to be able to relate to you on that level. You see her Daddy (my son-in-law) died a year ago last May of lymphoma. He was only 32 years old. She had often asked why Daddy died if he was not an old person. Luckily she has not lost both her parents to cancer like you have. It was then I realized how alone she had felt thinking she was the only one who had lost a parent.

The look on her face was priceless when she was explaining what you and she had in common. I could tell she was relieved to know that some other "little girl" had lost a parent that was at far too young of an age. In fact it is the lady that has horses.

Thanks for listening. You just never know whose life you are going to touch when you are on the radio. Thanks for being a great role model for my little Serenity.
