    Hi Rebecca, I do have a close friend that is in her 12th week of chemo after having had three (3) major abdominal surgeries in the past year for ovarian tumors that keep recurring.   I "know" my friend VERY well, but I knew that I did not know exactly how she was experiencing this chemo treatment - so I asked her to explain it to me on a day by day basis as to how it made her feel.  I told her how muc...

      Hello Cathy, I am so sorry to hear of Julia's setback.  I know your fear as it was this very time last year that we were walking in your shoes. I sat for hours and just drank in everything I could about Alex because I wanted to remember every hair and every eyelash and every dimple on his beautiful angelic face - taking every breath that he took those last hours. He told us once that God was making his wings ...

        Hi Joanne, I have thought about you guys often over the past few months.  It is difficult this time of year to know we must move forward - if not for them - for ourselves. Alex never condemned, complained or criticized through his whole ordeal and I have to remember that, when life's petty crap gets in the way! I am so happy to hear your NEWS - that is the best thing I've heard in a long time.  All the B...

          Dearest Cathy, As I sit here and read your words - my finger hovers over the keys as I am transported back to a year ago when we were in much your same situation.  Our 6 year old "Alex" was in and out of the hospital with much the same problems.  I feel your pain and know first hand how sad and confusing it all can be.  It is enough to make you feel crazy for sure. You feel locked into a time and spa...

            Hi Brandy, Yes, it is me - after so long a time - Our Alex passed just after your husband, the 9th of January 2011. Life has been pretty much a blur since then - I try to come here but, when I see all the pain and suffering surround so many - I want to run away and hide silently screaming - knowing what's in store for them. The few words I could have offered would not have been encouraging or uplifting - so, ...

            We are no longer coping with the "devil" tumor that had invaded the brain of my 6 yr old grandson and our lives. We are lost in the aftermath of the toll that GBM4 takes on the families left behind. Left behind to try and understand - to make sense of the non-sense - to find our way in the dark void of what we can no longer hold near to us - seeking solace where none is waiting, for now. God Bless all still in the fight.
