~ SweetBlood22 - Dawn - Out of Surgery - March 20 PM

SweetBlood22 - Dawn has had some issues for awhile...

Just talked to her and unfortunately she has to do battle with the beast again. Not a recurrence, different issue, different area, but still SCC. From what I gather, surgery is on the agenda and if all works out after scans that could be it.

If not, then additional treatment will be needed.

So please say some special prayers for one of the "Old Timers" ...

Dawn single handedly created and loaded the original SuperThread, believe it or not, she did it entirely on her cell phone, as for bad computer and reception.

There is tons of HTML code in there to get the links, colors, fonts, etc.... Very tedious for sure... I just fixed it recently for the new site specifics, it was a pain.

But she has told me many times, it's her way of giving back... hopefully to make it easier to find good information... She hopes to ease the burden especially for the newbies here...to make it easier in some way.

When her and I first started on here several years ago, info was much harder to come by..., and you know where you get Googling stuff.

Here's a photo of Dawn and her most beloved Nizzy..., her precious fur kid.

Dawn

Please keep her in mind, thought and prayer...

My thoughts and Prayers are coming now Dawn, stay positive. I always had a deal with Jesus that I would never find out worse news that I found out the first day. Anything that has occured since then has never been worse then that first day and that is what I will ask Jesus for you today and always for the people on this site suffering and surviving this Beast so you all call it( I am new). God Bless and Believe, the Lord will hold your hand!

Although new to this forum, I so appreciate all of the information you have compiled for us. I'm so sorry to hear that the nasty devil has come to visit again. Please know that you'll be in my thoughts and I'll be sending good vibes so you can shut the door in his face again.

Luv,

Thank you, John.  We all hate to hear this stuff, but hearing it about another old friend makes it tougher.  Dawn is a saint in my book.  From having to work 80+ hours for years in that shoe store.....having to tend to an elderly mother....that awful genetic problem.....and just the side effects of treatment, I'm not sure I could take it.  I pray that she will pull through again, because hard-nosed, beautiful Italian, Pennsylvania women are top notch.  Guess I'm sooooo fortunate to have made it 4 years post diagnosis, and feel great.  Prayers sent regarding Dawn.

Skiffin,

 

“entirely on her cell phone” while fighting cancer.  That deserves a big Thank You!  Information from the Superthread and the H&N forum helped me navigate the cancer jungle with fewer surprises.

 

I am very sorry she must tangle with the beast again and wish her the best of successful treatments.

 

Prayers,

 

Matt

For a long time you were the heart and soul of this forum, and as active as anyone ever has been. And, truly, you have been greatly missed of recent times by many of us "old timers." Whatever you have going on now, dear one, I pray you fight and win that battle as you did with C. You are precious; and, as for going forward in the Positive-

Believe

I read a post awhile back that she may be having C related issues. I am so sorry she has to deal with this beast once again. I am praying they get it all and she will not require further treatment. Dawn is such a woderful  and caring person she deserves all of our prayers. My husband and I will be saying prayers. Please keep us updated.

It is such a jolt to hear this. Sweetblood and her wisdom and strength were one of the reasons we were able to make it through as we did. It was for this reason that we met there in PA as Mary and I were coming back from a hockey tournament in Rochester a year and a half ago. Perhaps I will repost the photo. In fact, we didn't even stop off to see my aunt and uncle there nearby as Dawn was far more important. 

I am sure that DrMary will send something to her on Facebook but, please, send your prayers and Karma and strength her way. She is one of the good people in this world and we can ill afford to lose her. Doug

Please keep Dawn in your thoughts and prayers...

She is having surgery today..., I'm not totally aware of exactly what her procedure is, or log term treatment is or will consist of as of yet... But she has said it is indeed cancer, not related to Head & Neck, more gender related I believe...

But anyways, wanted to post what I am aware of of and get some added prayers sent her way.

Thanks so much for keeping us updated.  Please let Dawn know she's in my prayers.  She's such a warrior and was so very thoughtful with all her replies to me when I lost Charlie.  And to boot a dog lover!  Thanks.
