The Passing of Lindaa
On June 14. 2011 my beloved wife Linda passed away at home, one year to the day after her diagnosis. She posted here as Lindaa and during her treatment she requested that I post here if she passed. Her path was not easy as we went from chemo to chemo to clinical trial to palliative care without finding anything that would work on her triple negative IBC. Throughout her repeated hospitalizations and numerous procedures required to battle the progression and even after three separate oncologists declined to treat her further she remained uncomplaining and fought until the end. This past year has been a lesson in courage that I still cannot fully comprehend. She
wanted me to pass on to those of you here to remain positive, treasure every day and to keep fighting despite the odds. Even after she took her last ride home from the hospital in an ambulance she still wanted to go back for radiation to combat a brain met even though she had become too weak to get out of bed unassisted. The gift of courage that she left us will be a lasting legacy to all who knew her.
