Giving Thanks,


Recommended Posts

I would like to give thanks to my entire family, for helping each other and holding each other up throughout the last two and a half years. It has been the hardest 2 1/2 years of my entire life.

I would like to give thanks to my family here at LCSC...for walking with us, and supporting each other each and everyday.

I would like to give thanks to my 10 month old daughter's birthparents, who found it in their hearts to carry her for nine months, instead of choosing not too.

I would like to give thanks for my seven year old who got straight A's last week and is the coolest, kindest kid I know.

I would like to give thanks to my husband who humors my grand ideas and works like the devil (angel) to make LCSC a reality and a success.

I would like to give thanks to LCSC board of directors who volunteered to shoulder responsibilities with us, give us valuable insight and insurmountable support and balance.

I would like to give thanks to LCSC moderators, partners and volunteers who help us each and everyday.

I would like to give thanks for each and every member here.

All of you are survivors.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Each one of you hold a place in my heart.

Many Hugs,

I'd like to thank Katie & Rick, especially, for making this "place" for us all to be here to support one another. Most of us will never know just how much they put into this, to help other people get through the experience of having lung cancer or a loved one who is fighting or has fought it. And thanks to Connie for all her work as a board member, and for making me laugh, even in trying times.

Also, thanks to DavidC, for telling me to come here, and for being the best brother in the whole wide world... possibly the universe. And for KarenC for taking such good care of him and being such an advocate for him. And for the rest of my family for their love and support. And for all of you, who help us not to have to face these times alone. I'm sorry we all have to be here, but since we are, I'm glad we're in it together.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. TBone says (everybody now)...

Praying for us all,

You will always have a place in my heart Katie..I wasnt going to come here today, except now my house is empty..My husband and son just left for the Lions game, and of course I started thinking of my dad and all the Thanksgivings of the past, missing him terribly...

Thank you Katie and Rick for giving me a place to come to when I am feeling alone and sad.. I know someone here can always lift my spirits without even knowing and for that I am thankful.

Among many other people and things, Katie, I am thankful for you, Rick, and the many people of this site who help me navigate this diagnosis!

May we all remember those we have lost since last Thanksgiving and remember to say an extra prayer for their families tonight as they face the Holiday season.

I love you all.
