From Chip

28 Mar

Five months ago this week I was told I had Stage 4 Lung Cancer, that there is no cure, and I most likely had one-two years to live. It was obviously shocking and overwhelming. Sheila and I arrived in Philly this evening ready to start the next phase of this battle in the morning, and I once again find myself overwhelmed.

The love, support and generosity all of you have shown Sheila, Joe, Crosby and me has completely blown us away. The amount of money that has been raised in the last 48 hours is staggering and we are so grateful for it, but this is about so much more than that. It’s about each of you collectively supporting us emotionally, physically and now financially. You all have made such a difference. Team Kennett continues to inspire us. We’ve got this.

    Dear Chip, Sheila, Joe and Crosby: You are an amazing family with such strength. The universe is on your side. Love each other every day as none of us knows our fate. Stay strong. Our thoughts and prayers are with you every day. Easter is the season of new beginnings. I believe this is your new beginning. Take care. Love, Jeanne
