Congratulations to some of our MEMBERS!!!


Recommended Posts

This is something we used to do rather often, thanks to Don Wood, to recognize our more active members, but we haven't done it in a long while, because this is the first post, it will be made this way.

In future posts I will recognize each member individually as they past their post milestones! If I've left someone out please don't take it personally, please send me a private message and I will correct and add to the list.

Just want to give a warm cyber hug and a big thank you for everyone here.

Your posts touch us, support and encourage us. That's what makes LCSC so great.

Wow, Katie !!! We really have some very special people here on our MB. I hope that everyone that posts realizes how much they mean in the lives of others. Every day, there are those of us that look forward to turning on the computer and reading the words of a friend from the MB.

My hands are together for all of you who give so much to all of us who need so much. I know that I get up everyday and look forward to Ann and Judy's posts to get my day going. Many of those days I just read and ponder and lurk but I do appreciate all that everyone is doing for all of us. And then again a huge hand to Katie for keeping everyone going and recognizing what all are doing.

I would like to thank you, Katie, for your dedication to LUNGevity.

Our days have been enriched by your efforts.

Sometimes, when I am taken up with the various obligations that confront us with this disease, I feel more secure in knowing this oasis, this harbor of retreat is here.

There are no words to express my gratitude to you and everyone who has contributed information, support and caring - all those mentioned above and many more.

I love you all dearly - though I have never been in your actual physical space. Virtually, we have been holding hands through this journey.

Thank you.

Thank you Katie for taking the time to recognize so many great folks that offered there love & support to so many wonderful people over the years.

I was going down memory lane here the other day in the LC SURVIVORS forum, the thread "CALLING ALL LC SURVIVORS!. In that thread when I was reading over so many wonderful messages from those that some are still with us, but most of them are gone, it brought tears to my eyes.

I also remember some of these people along with myself, who were apart of this Message Board before it became LCSC. I have really been apart of this board since 1999 (had a different name back then), as have many others, but most of them are no longer with us. I have seen many many many people come and go over the years. It's hard to believe I have been here for 10 years and some of you maybe here that long too. I know David P has been apart of this Board for 10 years and he is a 33 year LC Survivor (dx. @ age 19) and still doing well today. He pops in here now and then. Another friend I met here is Just Rich who also is still battling LC and he is a 22 year survivor. I am still in contact with him.

I miss our friends who have passed. Those on this board, and those of my friends in my In Person LC Support Group.

I went through a period in my life after I lost my son in 2000, and at that time I was losing LC friends left & right, both from the Boards, and from my In Person LC Support Group that put my life into a tailspin. I was bouncing off the walls and didn't know which way to go and how to deal with all these horrible losses that had been ruling my life. I went through so many ups and downs emotionally and with the help of some of the members on this Board and through almost 3 years of counceling I started to piece my life back together. But I couldn't have done that without the friend I made here at LCSC. I somehow pulled through. But I never forget to stop and go back and remember my old friends here on LCSC. I have made some wonderful friends along this journey, and SO many people have stayed by my side through the ups and downs of my lifes situations. I thank them and they know who they are.

This was a very nice thread Katie, thanks for sharing it. I have fond and warm memories of so many great people.

Thank you Katie. First for all the hard work and commitment that you and Rick do and have. Second for recognizing us "old" (only in length of time) members.

I don't have much to offer anymore, it will be 5 years in August since Earl died. So I am not much up to date on the strides they are making in lc.

But, my good friend has just be dx'd with LC with BAC. Her head is in the sand and she is pretending it is just a bump in the road and we all pray that it is. She started Tarceva yesterday.

To our Katie,

This was a welcome surprise! Thank you Kaite of acknowledging all of our us "oldies" who have been here through so many ups and downs.

But it is this site that has saved so many lives with the knowedge that so many of our members have with the experiences we have gone through being the victim of this herendous disease or a caretaker.

I don't know what I would have done without this site. You have created this site for the love of your beloved dad, Jesse and he is so proud of all you have accomplished along with your beautiful mom. I know they look down upon you with great admiration and love

Thank you Katie for the acknowledgement as it must have taken some time to get that information together. . .but you my dear are the GEM! Of course along with Rick.

Love ya,

Maryanne :wink:
