    Sorry I missed paying respects at your sad loss as I am on the colon cancer forum.
    Yes your right, there are so many on here who are truly inspirational in their fight against this disease. I feel humbled at their strength and resolve and truly amazed at the tremendous and unstinting support and care people receive from many who have fought and are still fighting their battles.
    In my book it is the most amazing site I have the privilege to be a member.
    To everyone, wherever you are from
    God bless you all
    Have the most wonderful Christmas as you can
    May the New Year bring to all of you, health, peace and fortitude.

    Hi Hoots,

    You know we're still here to give you support. Many of us understand how difficult it is to get through the grieving and loss of our loved ones, especially during the year of "firsts."

    Please feel free to post and share whenever you need.

    God bless and a Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Husband diagnosed with NSCLC Stage IV in 3/2005. Fought & lived over 2 1/2 years with multiple lines of treatment.

    Left my embrace to live with our Heavenly Father in October of 2007 and now breathes with ease forever. I will miss this gentle, giving soul with the easy smile for the rest of my days, but have faith we will be together again. He's just getting a little break from me!
