A few years back in late 2013 I saw a Coffee Morning advertised by Ovacare here in Cork. I was feeling miserable as on Gem/Avastin and very unsure of myself with a recurrence. I entered the Hotel and found directions to the event. I entered the room with trepredation and a runny nose from the Avastin, I met June from Ovacare and I sat down next to this lovely young woman who immediately said "Well you are on Avastin anyhow" This broke the ice for me, MissFitz as we knew her made me feel immediately at home and chatted about the side effects she had. I brightened up and when it was time to go, I was a changed person, much brighter and more positive. MissFitz and the other ladies made me feel I was no longer alone. Today, I bid MissFitz farewell. From the Eulogy it seems that MissFitz was always like this, kind. courteous, concerned and helpful. Even a few weeks ago, she also gave courage to another lady on treatment near her in the Oncology Unit. MissFitz fought her illness with the same courage and determination she brought out in other people. She would not give in, she wanted as much time as possible with her husband and young family. She did do that and had many holidays despite her illness. Tonight when the sky is bright, there will be another Shining Star, her husband and children have their own guardian angel. May Sara be at peace
