Look Better Than You Feel

Yesterday my friend, Kim Newlen, lost her battle against cancer, but gained access to her heavenly home.   Knowing firsthand the needs of women who have undergone surgery for breast cancer, she designed at least two products related to post surgical recovery, one of which is now provided at discharge to patients at several teaching hospitals in Virginia.

I didn't know until yesterday that Kim was not only a general education teacher but also received a Master's degree in special education from Clemson University.  No wonder she was so nice and understanding to me, her friend who is an occupational therapist.  Special education teachers accept everyone, no matter how quirky they act.

I look forward to seeing her again.
