When Patricia and I were at a bridge tournament in Santa Clara last week, the first pair we joined up with to form a team were 2 very congenial ladies from Palo Alto. I exchanged email addresses with one of them, Denise, because she said that she comes to Sacramento occasionally to visit her cousin, and thought that we could play bridge here some time.
Tonight I had an email from Denise saying that she had a cousin who has been diagnosed with a stage 3 astrocytoma. Denise googled his neuro-oncologst, Enrico Lallana, and came across the force of erin blog:
Denise searched the blog further and found the recent blog “Erin’s Aunts and Uncles” and there she found photos of Patricia and me:
The cousin is also going to see Dr. Jennifer Clark at UCSF.
I had not discussed Erin and at all with Denise, so what a small world! Denise has joined the list of blog followers.
