peacelover Posted September 3, 2006 Share Posted September 3, 2006 My name is Melissa and I have been reading all of the incredible stories on this board for a few days. I wanted to introduce myself and wanted to applaud you all for your strength and tenacity in fighting this disease and for the awesome way you share hope with the others on this board -YOU ARE ALL INCREDIBLE! We received mom's dx of NSLC-Stage IIIB 8 years ago. A 'tickle' in her throat was the only outward sign that she had...I do not have to tell you all about this roller coaster it is more treatments than any human should have to endure and for sure, it is a ride we are all on. Now, mom is doing pretty well-her last PET in May showed the 3 previous Brain Mets, thyroid and adrenal gland mets are gone. While the original tumor appears 'dead' there are others in both lungs now, the docs are having a hard time telling the diff between scar tissue, fluid and tumor in her right lung...my mom has never topped smiling and is not using her O2 much at all the last few weeks-her 'memory' has come back(guessing because the tumors in Brain are gone)and she is going back to work after taking a 6 week leave on Sept 20th. I am so moved to see you all bless each other with support, hope and love, this is what life is about, helping each other-I would like to bless each of you as you have blessed others if you will allow. I am starting a non-profit org to donate paintings to chemo centers and would like to make an offer to everyone on this board. Can I send you each a painting with an inspirational message on it? Take a look at my website-I am at www.artforyourheart.org Or www.artforyourheart.com You can read more about why I started this project, see my work and more about my mom's story on the Mission Statement Page. I have donated to mom's doc, and 2 other cancer tx centers in dallas as well as the ronnie mac house for kids here The only string in this offer is that you continue to share your brilliant light with the world! The world really needs it! I will cover postage etc and would consider myself blessed to give you this gift...just PM me or email me thru my site and I will get to work on your painting! Rainbows of healing light and Brightest Blessings to all! Melissa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
