    This is Geri's husband writing to let you all know that she passed away peacefully in her sleep Tuesday last. LC was not the cause but the chemo that she had for breast cancer significantly damaged her heart. I know that she made a lot of friends both on the site and in real life through the site, and was able to find the cofounder of the Boston lung cancer walk that way. The walk is her legacy and I am very proud of what she achieved. She is a prime example of lung cancer being defeated, and she has given strength to a lot of people by demonstrating that. My best to all. Richard [email protected]
  2. What a lovely surprise, it's so good to see you again and you look even more beautiful than I remember. Your grandson is so cute, I too have new grandsons, one is only 5 days old and his brother is 2 1/2, fun aren't they. I'm Glad you stopped by, we "oldies" have a history all our own. Take care Geri
  3. 10 years ago I had the most timely dose of pneumonia, because of this small cell lung cancer was discovered on the first xray and the tests began. I won't bore you with those details -- you all are familar with them! The night before Thanksgiving I was sent home with appointments set for the next week and a boat load of very strong drugs to ease the pain. So began my journey through the haze and exhaustion, but a PET scan 6 months later was NED, and now it's 10 years later and lung cancer seems so long ago. Not so long as to be forgotten but way back in my memories. My wish is for every one of us to have hope and maybe this will be your inspiration. Geri

    Doubts

    Oh Judy, I'm so sorry you're being put through the wringer like this. I don't know why the makers of all these "wonder drugs" can't do anything about the side effects. I take 16 different drugs daily, several of them to counteract the side effects of the drugs that I really need. I guess that's the price we have to pay - some days it's too way expensive and I have a pity party, anytime you want to join me feel free to let me know. I wish I had the solution for your physical problems and could stop you second guessing yourself. Rest assured that you're not alone in that department, I think it's something we all do at times, we wonder whether it's worth all the crap that comes our way........would it be different if we had done something else........... it probably wouldn't. I bought myself a new placque which makes me smile when it all seems overwhelming - "Now put on your big girl panties and deal with it" - hard to do at times but know we're all behind you, understanding and feeling your feelings too. Take care Geri
  8. Hi Dave, sorry to welcome you here but glad you found us. I was dx with limited sclc (in my lower left lobe) in November 2001, chemo and radiation took care of everything and I haad a clear PET in May 2002. Take it all one day at a time and stay with me on the green side of the sod. Nice to meet you. Geri
  9. Dear Val, You have every right to ask us to pray for you...........think how many times you've prayed and worried for us. Let us take the load and you concentrate on your recovery, You have my thoughts and prayers. Geri

  13. Happy New Year Katie, my lc story is told in My Story forum as Geri's tale. If you want to use it it's all yours, my unrelated health issues are listed also so feel free to edit whenever you need to. Thanks for all you do Geri
  14. Oh Maryanne I'm so happy for you and Joel. We've been there and the relief is wonderful isn't it. It may not be the New Year yet but you've given me a smile for the end of 2010 that will last through 2011. Happy New Year my friend, go celebrate! Geri
  15. What a wonderful Christmas you wil be having, celebrating 3 yrs at this time year seems even more special. If your Mom ever needs encouragement I passed the nine year mark at Thanksgiving so, for me, sclc seems a lifetime ago. Go celebrate Geri

    Congratulations, I'm so happy for you. Take care, Geri
  17. Consider it done, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Geri
  18. Katie what a grand day you had. Your numbers have jumped so much, it really is a wonderful feeling isn't it to know that people are starting to hear about the walk and telling other people. Your guardian angels were watching over you, as they always are, you've made them very proud of everything you do. Congratulations Katie, another successful walk in DFW. Geri.
  19. Oh bugger! I'd like to put something a little stronger there but then I may lose my post. I can't beleive she's gone, Oh Katie my heart is heavy for you, you've lost a very special friend. I know how you feel and it's a dreadful weight to carry. Somehow when you lose someone this special it's a different pain than losing a family member - this is a person you have chosen to have in your life, to love and confide your fears and successes to. I wish I could take some of this pain for you. My condolences Geri
  20. Good to hear from you, so pleased that you're too busy living life to be here often. You are missed! Geri.
  21. Does he give autographs????????? That's a terrific commercial Maryanne, he gives you the credit for all the information about cyberknife too - Bless his heart. Congratulations go you Joel, great job! take care Geri.
  22. Happy birthday to my favorite bus driver. Geri
  23. Congratulations! Fancy that store being out of 10 year survivor cards, not much forethought there but your husband sure made up for it. Bless his heart for making your 'anniversary' so special. I hope you made the most of this special day. Geri
