Friends,
I know we are all here at all different stages of EC. You and us, we're all a statistic of one. Remember that. This is a place of comfort, information, and peace for those experiencing EC.

Tonight my beautiful mother has left her cancerous body behind to feast on a turkey buffet in heaven (she looooves turkey, but you know how tough it is to eat during EC). Although she has passed away, I know she must feel such relief to leave her exhausted body behind. It was peaceful and an experience I wouldn't trade for the world. She has taught me so much, especially during her 12 month battle. She is to date, the bravest woman I know and I know she is cheering all of you on to overcome this disease. You all have helped me so much over the past year, in result helping her. It is a bitter sweet experience and I can share details another time.

For now, just know my mom is no longer struggling with this disease and you have her cheering you all on in winning the battle. You can do it! Don't ever give up!

Loss is difficult, at best. There aren't words to express my sorrow for your pain.

I'm glad her passing was peaceful. That, thank God, is one thing EC can't take away from us - the dignity of passing with grace in peace.

Hold close to your memories of the good days. You will need the strength you get from those memories.

with Love & Hugs,

Terry

I am so sorry to hear that your Mother has left us. I am sure she is now in a better place beyond the pain and suffering of cancer.

May you and your family be blessed with strength and peace during this difficult time.

With my condolences,

I am so sorry for your loss.......but I am relieved for you that her passing was peaceful. Your mother was a warrior and I do take solace in knowing that she is looking down on all of us and giving us her strength. I hope you will continue to post on this site (I am fairly new here!). As I have taken great comfort in your updates.

Peace and love be with you!

Sweetie, I'm so sorry. I know exactly the experience having lost mom while I was holding her this past March. They were brave women to be sure. My heart aches for your broken heart.

Thanks friends. I am sad, but also happy that all those fighting EC have an extra angel cheering them on. It's always better to see an NED announcement on here, rather than a RIP. Keep your chin up, buttercup! That's what my mom would say.

So sad to read this news and I am pleased at the way you are looking at this. Your mom has raised you well. Another angel to look over us is absolutely correct. May you find comfort and strength in the days and weeks and months ahead of you.

Hugs, Judy

I was so sad to sign on just now and read your news. May you take much comfort in memories of your mom's happy and laughing times! Her picture always made me smile!! She will, I am sure spread happiness above and, hopefully, shower all of us with the help we need to come through this difficult time in our lives. Please take some time for yourself to remember and reflect on happier times.

Hugs,

Trisha
