Meeting Your Guardian Angel

18 Feb

I sometimes feel that what’s happening to me is directed by the Divine. On the other hand, I’ve blogged about co-incidences that make me think I have a guardian angel. Yesterday I met her.

My blog has reached corners I could never have conceived of. And reconnected me with characters with whom I had long lost contact. But when a cousin of Pam insisted I get to Dr William Isacoff – a circle was completed. Why him? I asked. “‘Cause he’s one of the best pancreatic cancer specialists there is”, he replied. I’d already been referred to Bill a couple of weeks earlier by Debbie Oppenheimer. Now this cousin is telling us that his connection was through Agi Hirshberg, who, in gratitude for Bill’s treatment of her husband, set up the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research[18] . What a vote of thanks – and what a woman.

This powerhouse of a woman, who is beautiful inside and out, contacted me immediately she knew I was ill – and continues to inspire me with her unbounded concern and love. Yesterday she took the unprecedented step to meet me inVancouver. Step did I say? Not even a hop, skip and jump – she flew in from California. Pam and I met Agi in the lobby of her hotel. Even though we’d never set eyes on her before – I think we’d have picked her out in a crowd of hundreds. It was like meeting a long-lost relative; a living legend.

The facts speak for themselves. The Hirshberg Foundation is at the forefront of pancreatic research and inspires so many. It makes me feel that I should be helping too. At dinner, we introduce Keith to Agi and the discussion deals with the Ketogenic diet.  My hope is that research may come of this, and who knows – others may benefit as well as me. 

 Thank you, Agi.

    So my immediate reaction after reading this blog was:
    This is from one angel to another.
    And then I wondered if angels were males too …
    So I delayed writing this not having checked the answer.
    But decided to submit it knowing that you are back home, safe and sound!
