How they met
Erin had actually known Nicola previously because their husbands were close friends. The two never really got to know each other until they were both diagnosed with cancer.
Their first meeting was an uncanny coincidence. They saw each other at their very first appointments for their newly diagnosed tumors. Fate had decided that the two women be scheduled on the exact same day and the exact same time. As they filled out their information, answering mundane questions about their medical and family history, Erin recalls the sickening feeling sinking into her stomach as the reality of her disease hit home. That’s when she looked over at Nicola and knew that her new friend felt exactly the same way.
