Redsox, who was once a very strong voice on the DCIS board has died. It was neither covid nor breast cancer but head injuries sustained during a fall. She was a fount of wisdom and support for me and many others. She was in public health and very knowledgable about the medical details of breast cancer. I know she helped me enormously and I believe many others. It is a sad reminder that life can be unfair in multiple ways.

What terrible, shocking news.

Redsox was a gem, and so knowledgeable; I've missed her around here.

Damn, yes, life can be unfair in so many ways.

dsj, thank you for coming back to let us know.

I'm so sad to hear this. Redsox was so much help to me during my decision-making, and I always appreciated her well-informed input. Her words here will continue to help people, and she is a blessing to us all.
