80 Days Got Me Thru CHEMO!! by purple32759 on 2 April 2003 6:07pm
 
I just saw Michael Palin on THE TODAY SHOW and I wanted to E-mail him and tell him How Much his Series- Around The World in 80 Days MEANT to Me during my Chemo Treatments! I went thru Breast Cancer 7 years Ago. Part of my Chemo Treatment was done at the Hospital--Every Friday Night I would spend the Night and receive my Taxol Treatment over a 24 Hour Period, and The Thing I Looked Forward to the MOST-- was our local Cable, (it might have been PBS), would show AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS! Being a Person who Dearly LOVES To TRAVEL--Watching Michael's Series was a Wonderful ADVENTURE and ESCAPE!! Going Thru My Cancer Treatment--I used allot of Mental Imagery--so 80 Days was the PERFECT Medicine!! I've Always wanted to Tell Michael How Much I Appreciated 80 DAYS!!!! I will Always have a Special place in My Heart for Michael Palin and how he Cheered Me Up and Took Me on His Wonderful Adventure!! THANKS MICHAEL!!!

What a wonderfully heartwarming story, purple32759. I have a feeling this post will reach him somehow...

I hope you are doing, and feeling, a lot better now.
