so many


Recommended Posts

I have been reading back over our member list. There are so many people who have helped all of us along the way. I said I want to honor a different one every day but how doI chose?

I remember Betty and her Happy Dance, she kept posting even after hospice had been called in. I have just read her post when she let us know that the end was near.

My friends, I want to thank you all for the many messages of support and hope I have received from all of you over the last few months. It has really meant a lot.

Now for the bad news, I am entering the final stages of my journey. I woke up tuesday and couldn't walk. the tumor on my spine from last summer has come back. It is wrapped around my spinal cord and all roads at this point lead to paralysis and death. It is just a matter of time. The consensus was that I could continue chemo, but it would just make my life miserable with out any return. Surgery to remove the tumor was out as well, for various reaasons and radation is not an option because the area has recieved the maximum dosage already.

I spent the last 4 days in the hospital and have now been discharged home into Hospice care. I will be checking in as long as I can, and have let my sister know to let you folks know when it is over as well.

I am scared and can barely walk from couch to puter, but my thoughts and prayers are all for those of you struggling against this beast along side me.

Blessings all


Then there was the two Daves always bickering in fun. Always too were the ones who were caregivers keeping us updated on their loved ones. Don and Ginny and Norme always telling the stories of her Buddy. I wonder where she is and how she is doing now.

I will keep searching the archives I know there are many who have slipped my mind for a while. I just pray every day that one day the list will stop growing and there will be no more need for this place.

Oh yes it is so sad. We remember them as people, we know many of their stories but the world never sees that. They never see the fear and hope and love and laughter. They hear of a disease and unless it is a celebrity they have no idea the toll the monster is taking.

I think our biggest goal to get the help that is really needed is to make everyone see that lung cancer isn't just a disease but a destroyer of lives, a monster who takes away loved ones. I thief who robs us of happiness and dares us to do anything about it.

It is because of this that I wanted to run the in memory of with my status everyday on facebook. I want to remind everyone that we are talking about people, not smokers or non smokers but people. People who are husbands and lovers or wives. People who are mothers or fathers or brothers or sisters or even best friends.

Lung cancer does not discriminate between the poor and the wealthy or the young and the old. It doesn't care if a person is a truck driver or teacher or rocket scientist. It destroys dreams and leaves this world a lesser place because of all the wonderful people that are no longer with us.
