Good morning, everyone. Welcome to what is normally your weekly dose of flash fiction. This week is supposed to be Cathy MacKenzie’s turn to write a piece. She will be back next month with free flash fiction for you, but today, she is busy with a matter a bit more pressing.
Her son, Matt, who is only around my age, has been diagnosed with a very rare form of heart cancer. This week, he had an operation to remove his heart and receive an artificial one to help him hold out long enough to hopefully receive a transplant.
In lieu of Cathy’s fiction piece for today, I wanted to share a GoFundMe page that has been set up for Matt. You can read more about what he and his family are going through. Please don’t feel obligated to help, but if you choose to, know that the family will be grateful for even a dollar.
Cathy has been a member of The Spot Writers since its inception years ago. I often think of her as the “mother” of the group, the one who keeps us organized and on-task so we can bring you your weekly flash fiction. I look forward to her returning to our group, and I send all my thoughts and prayers to her son and his children.
Til next time!
