Flames of Hope

Always wanted to come to the Flames of Hope Waterfire in Providence. Never seen waterfire!! Of course the one for breast cancer is emotional for me. Friends of mine found out I've never been, so now I am here!!!! Feeling a bit emotional!!!!! 

I became a puddle when the survivors walked out and formed a ring of flame around the basin. THEN, ballerinas danced holding the flame of hope, I was a mess!!! Then we went to GREGGS where my friends ordered a flame of hope cake without my knowledge!! The waitresses came walking out with that and it had one candle and the breast cancer ribbon on a pink cake. It said "in honor of you Claire"!! Yep cried again!! THEN the waitress came over and said that someone in the restaurant anonymously paid for the cake!!!!!!!!!!!! Jeeeeeeeeeeeez, What a night!!!!!!!!!! Feeling very blessed!!!!

  1. This made me tear up, Claire. No one deserves to be spoiled a little by her friends more than you. You are a gift to all of us every day in so many ways. I am so glad you got to experience this night with those friends. You're not "just" a survivor. You're a thriver! And you inspire me more than you know!
