Hi. Chances are high that I will be starting chemo in May. I know of at least one other person who is starting too. Let's support and love each other through this. Hugs with long chimp arms.

Thought I would just let you all know that blondelawyer (Lisa Brown) died this morning.


Her dear father-in-law has been by her side throughout this sad final journey.

I don't believe she was close to many here - but the YSC girls have been watching over the amazing love given to her by the cystic fibrosis support commmunity, where she was very active. For more info,

i am so sad that Lisa has passed away. We started out with the same kind of dx at about the same time. Hers worsened even on the chemo.

I kept up w her through here and later on her blog. I knew she was IV and sent her healing thoughts.

Although it is horrible, I find peace knowing she is with her beloved husband.

Rest in peace Blondelawyer...

My heart just broke a little reading about Lisa.  She jumped from here to the Stage IV forums when her 'suspicious spot' at original diagnosis was confirmed in January as lung cancer.  Poor dear.  She had been so sad after losing her DH and none of the chemo was doing a darn thing for her!  I hate BC!!!!

I can just feel her DH was waiting for her with open arms.  The young lovers are now together again.  I will use that image to ease the pain of her passing.

I agree MamaV, I will also keep that thought - I know she was in so much pain from losing him and then from having to go through this battle without him. RIP Lisa.  I am so sad, this is such a sobering update. All we can do is to enjoy our lives and be grateful for every day we are given. I've remarried since but in 2008 I lost my husband of a sudden cardiac arrest- totally healthy man- we had three kids, one of which was with him at the park. We never know and we can't live in fear we should just live with joy and gratitude. <3

I have been thinking about Lisa since I saw the thread last night.  I am so sad about her passing.  Beaglesgirl, thank you for the words of wisdom.

I would like to let everyone on the board know that you all helped me get through my journey.  We might not know each other closely but this online connection with you all is truly a tremendous blessing for me.

Something told me I should come back and visit everyone here.

I'm so saddened to learn of Lisa's passing. I feel like I've lost a friend.

I think she my have died of a broken heart as much as cancer. May she rest in peace and be with her dear, sweet husband. She had a lot of really good memories of him on her blog. She's an angel now. 

I'm glad to see the rest of you ladies here. You all sound good and getting through recovery. I've been hit by cellulitis many times (hospital stay for week in late July) but apart from that I have only happiness and grace to dwell on. Although, I'm now profoundly saddened to hear one of our own has passed. God bless her.

Hugs,

Kat
