I go to school with Cherish and have known her for a few years. We dont really hang out because we arent exactly in the same group. She is great. She is always so enthusiastic and hard working. When she came back after her long ordeal, we could all see that her face seemed a lot puffier than before, however I am extremely proud to say that none of us judged or made fun of her. We all realized that she had gone through a lot and that she had no control over the water retention. From where I stand, it looks like everyone was really supportive and tried to helpful to her. We are in classes together and from what I can tell she is doing much better.
