Karla Explains Her Cancer

The first few days in the hospital were a STEEP learning curve. The biggest thing that I learned was that I really knew nothing about cancer. But, I am quickly becoming an expert in my cancer.

Karla, you are such an amazing and strong woman! Keep your energy up, even if the energy is only to keep your mind and soul on your goals for the next year. I’ve been doing a lot of reading on cancer treatments lately… It might be worth talking to cannabis specialists about oils, CBD or CBS/THC blends, for either pain, or to inhibit tumour growth. Doctors don’t know much about it, but there is a lot of research being done. I will continue to send you positive thoughts. Good souls like you have a lot of love around you.

I must admit that you are one of the bravest people I know. Perhaps it was your bravery in starting up new greenfield companies that allowed you to face this awful disease. To think that you could do that video without crying and telling others “why me” is amazing in itself. Adrian was diagnosed with breast cancer nearly 6 years ago. He was “lucky” to have found a lump so there was no time delay. He too is so young – same age as you – what the heck is going on?? He is well now and you can be too. Thanks for sharing your story – it will help us to push doctors to investigate our symptoms and get answers so we can deal with the medical problems. Will keep following you and wish for improved health. Penny & Adrian

Hey Karla… I just watched the message that you taped with Joseph, your awesome nurse..… Really helpful for me to understand how this all came about. But what is still so confounding is how incredibly positive and strong willed you are in the face of such bewildering and frustrating news. You are such a remarkable person…and at a time when we should all be helping YOU …there you go helping the rest of US …in the search for our own strength! You might not have even known that that notion was embedded in your message. But it was. It’s so funny that here we are…women at (and around) the age of 50…and I can still see your 12-year-old face and hear your 15-year-old voice and spot your 17-year-old personality! I think that’s what’s so special about being longtime family friends… We see the people that we have always known …while simultaneously appreciating the people that we’ve become.

It’s Thanksgiving week here in the US. And my mom is flying up from Florida to have Thanksgiving dinner this Thursday with Chris and me. Fischer and Ridley are flying down to the Turks and Caicos to spend the holiday with their dad and his family…as they have a place down there… We are inviting stragglers and friends from NYC and CT to join us and we will have a table of nine (One of whom is the legendary actress Brenda Vacaro!) I will lift my glass to you and give thanks for the joys I have always shared with you from the time we were little…to the strength and conviction you are now sending to me through the discovery of your new normal.
Loving you from slightly afar…but feeling closer to you than ever before.
My warmest hugs, Ashleigh❤️
