I'm here, but not as frequently as before. Mostly because I have a job at my church now, and I am really busy with that.

Hope you're doing okay!

*hugs*

I am still here also, as is my daughter Johnnybegood. She is still fighting the beast with a vengeance and I am still worrying for her and all of our other "family members" here. None of us have heard from Buzz for quite some time and of course we all wish him well. He was one of the first to reach out to my daughter and myself when we joined the group.

You are a special person and I hope that life is treating you well and that you are with a nice family.

Luv,

Wolfen

I don't post much, I'm living life hard to find the time. I do however log on and read a few post's a week. Still sadness, still bickering, but for the most part still a lot of love and hope being divvied out to those who are in need. It's a great bunch of people tho they do change. I too have not figured out what happened to Buzz and would like to know if anyone cares to share. Tom

Still here....

:)

Glad all is well - I can't believe how 3 years of our lives have just gone by. You're getting older now and hope your studies are going well. You've changed since I first met you and it's a pleasure seeing where you are at now - from where you were then. I remember every word of it.

Time does not heal all wounds...but the passage of time itself, does help soften the memory and ease the transition towards another tomorrow.

Like sands through the hourglass - so go the days of our lives...

And I'm glad to see you and want to wish you nothing but the best.

There are still a bunch of us 'old timers' still here, but unfortunately there are a lot more new folks who have had to find their way to us.

As for Buzz, we all hope and pray that he is doing well. We too miss him.

Take care 'young one' and thanks for checking back in with the 'family'.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Hello Sophie. So very glad to see you. You young lady have made such an impression on my life and I am so glad you are keeping in touch.I have a daughter too, and every time you would post back in the old days it would make me think of her and how she jumped in her car at college and drove 8 hours to be with me when I had my surgery and stayed until I could do for myself, knowing she might be screwed up for the semester. Yes, daughters DO love their Mothers.

I am SO proud of you Sophie!!

I am here a couple of times a week but I don't post a lot.Others do the posting much better than I can.

We all love you girl!

-Pat

Sophie,
It is so good to hear from you. Dick and I are still here. It has been 3.5 years. Dick is still in treatment (80 something chemos) and we are living our life.
If you have some time, I know a lot of us would love to know a bit more about how you are doing.
Take care and sending you hugs.

Aloha,
Kathleen

Hope you're doing well.

I don't come here as often as I used to. I too think of us oldies and wonder for those of us who are still left, how others are doing. Clift was a light in my darkness as well as a ton of other people here. I think of everyone often. I often wonder if I stayed it would have helped anyone. There are many here who've experienced so much more than me. I sometimes come by just to read what's going on.

Still here......Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

He was so upbeat, sad that he just disappeared. I know that we are all facing hard times, with Cancer and our families, but we can't give in to sorrow and depression.

Just can't let it happen.

God Bless us all, and keep us in good spirits and keep us around to help all those with new diagnosis!

I am here...Just going through some big changes since I finished chemo a year ago. It got so hard for me to hold myself together that I got to a point where I felt I had nothing to offer anyone else. I'm feeling better the last month after some labs and correcting some deficiencies. So much better!!

I think about everyone here often how important you all are to me!

Love ya, Gail

I have been on and off this site since 2004 and seen many peopple come and go for a variety of reasons. My own belief is that most people come here when they need and leave when they dont but also there comes a time when people want cancer (and all its associated paraphenalia, including this site) to occupy less space in their lives. They literally want to 'move on'.I have done that myself at times but return when I feel i can contribute or need the board for myself. I think it is sad when people who can offer others a lot move on but appreciate it is them doing what is right for them.

I only remember Buzz faintly and there are so many other names that arise from time to time that trigger memories of groups that have formed in the past. I hae seen newbies become oldies. I ahev seen people chased from the site for thier views, some leaving in anger and many leave because they feel it is time for moving on. Sadly I have seen many also pass away from this site, which is always the hardest thing.

Ultimately it is the strength of this site that it simply continues to exist and is here for any one who needs it. We should avoid subgroups within it, cliques and divisions between new and old members. We are all here simply trying to find something that helps us get up each morning to continue to fight.It is the commonality that binds us, not our differences.

Sorry for the rant- I'm just feeling a little in love with this site at the moment! It really is a wonderful thing.

I googled his screen name under Buzzard,csn. All of his posts should have come up, but didn't. If I got his screen name correct, that means he asked someone to remove his screenname and witdraw his membership. His posts should have come up using a search engine.

Buzzard's profile as well as posts are still on CSN, just search under content and members. I don't think he could have his posts deleted on a search engine.

I had faded into the background, because I felt you guys didn't need to hear about me and my many adventures anymore. I am one of the 'lucky' ones who has been given my life back...well, the life that is left...

My fav saying now is "It's not what you are left with, it's what you do with what you are left with".

For those who remember me, I'm still NED on both the rectal and the breast cancer, celebrating 6 years post any treatment (still amazing to me, after being told I would not live past 6 months...). I'm still the world traveler, just back from an 11-day Baltic cruise. I had a few days where my radiated hip gave me trouble, which led to a rather embarrassing moment in Copenhagen where I sort of collapsed in the street (happens not too frequently, thank goodness).

I send all of you big hugs...and I still see many of my old friends on Facebook...they are, for the most part, doing well...or at least getting by.

I was so saddened by the death of Jennie. She and I had just cyber talked about meeting up for a beer at the next Colonpalooza. She is a bright light still shining in my heart.

Hugs, Kathi

I am still here and probably will be posting for at least two months after I die!
While I certainly don't feel obligated to stay active on here, I feel an obligation to do so since I fall into a unique group. Those living with cancer as more of a nuisance (the cancer, not me although that's debatable) with steady treatments of Erbitux and yearly RFA's. All of us have something to offer especially as far as treatment option go.
One Size Doesn't Fit All...

I certainly can understand how many want to "do their time" then not look back.
Hopefully I'm doing 30+ years...I'm over 8 1/2 years into my "time" already...

I wish Buzz would check in too but I certainly can understand if he doesn't.
As dysfunctional as we, and most families often are, we do all care about each others well being I feel...

Phil,
Dick and I talk about you often. We appreciate that you still come on and share. Since Dick has been in active treatment most of the past 3.5 years he needs to hear about others living with cancer long term.

Aloha to you my friend.

The way this board is set up, unless the person used their username in their posts, it won't find them.

Clift sometimes used his name and sometimes his nickname from his teen years. There's no way to easily find his last post.

I'm so glad that you're still on the board! I don't come here that much because i'm so active on facebook. A lot of us are. If you're there, friend me! krista d'ambroso. You may find some of the people you're looking for in my friend's list.

I'm currently NED, having my last surgery for a lung met in March of this year where they took my left lower lobe. I've recovered very nicely from that. I have a wonderful man by my side with the added bonus that he is a professional life coach, so he's keeping me happy and very active both mentally and physically. I feel healthy and blessed.

How have you been? I see a lot of old timers posting here, and it warms my heart. Too many of us have been lost, so it's nice to see that some of us do get out of this situation alive.

Lots of love!

Kathi, i love hearing about your adventures! Thank you for bringing them to fb since i'm rarely here anymore. Love you!
