  1. Different kind of cancer for me (it was my Mama who had LC), but I think people just didn't know what to do. I had some amazing people step up to the plate and some other who didn't exactly walk away, but who just kind of went on with their lives around me. I think especially when it happens at a young age people just don't know what to do with it or how to really support you because they haven't encountered it very often yet. I'm sure it's the same sort of thing even as we get older.
  2. I'm so sorry that I missed this when you originally posted this and that now you are fighting the beast with your husband. I'm glad that the lung has responded and praying about this spot in his bone.
  3. Oh Ms. Kasey. I just love you. And your story. And the encouragement and hope you give me.

  5. Those are a sock in the gut, aren't they?
  6. This is so awesome and fantastic and wonderful I don't know what to say. So glad to read this today!
  7. Look at that sweetheart!!!! And look at you, gorgeous and happy! It's so good to hear from you, Beth!!!!
  8. http://www.abta.org/Care_&_Support/Fina ... sources/49 This link was posted at another support site I visit. It starts out talking about 'brain tumors' but it seems to be applicable to a wider spectrum than that. I hope something here is helpful!
  9. The article was excellent. I nearly came unglued when I saw the first comment though. Made me want to smack that person with a stupid stick.
  10. I agree with the face punching. I don't get it either. The people who have loved ones who died from it and still shrug their shoulders and go, "Well they smoked!" HELLO?! I honestly don't even think it's an issue of ignorant vs. non-ignorant in those cases so much as I can't understand how someone could possibly care so little. I'm sure they did care and that they did grieve, but how can you have that attitude after being face to face with this disease? How can you possibly look at your Mom or Dad and think they got what was coming to them? My Mom was not a perfect woman smoker or otherwise, but I LOVED her and saw past all those flaws. I CAN'T be callous about what happened to her because it gutted me and I can't compartmentalize it and say that it just happened because she smoked because it just plain doesn't make sense and even if it did she's my MOM. Anyway. I'm with you. I don't get people. The more hard situations and heart-breaking scenarios I live through the more I'm startled that the way that I care and the way that I think really aren't like the way other people care and think.

    You said it so perfectly.
  12. Oh Melinda. I DO remember you too, and I can't believe you have need to be here again. It's JUST NOT FAIR. I am so sorry. Praying for you and for your Dad.
  13. Daddy was in deny, deny, deny mode immediately. I have called him in the past and I wonder every year if I should but since he doesn't seem to want to 'go there' I usually don't call him. *I* call Mom's best friend, and she is always thinking about it and hurting too. We cry a little together and I feel better. I think it's a comfort for some of us to remember and to feel the pain of the loss again, even though it hurts. And for others pushing it away is the only way they know to deal.
