Please pray for my dear friend Diazr1 as he is close to losing his battle with cancer. Many of you may have seen his posts on this discussion board. He's been battling Hodgkins for the last 4 years and I just found out that he is no longer doing well. I'm still praying for a miracle :'(

You are both in my thoughts, Susy.  I know miracles happen and I have no doubt prayers and positive thoughts helped me in my battle.  Sending warm and positive energy to you both...

Please keep us updated and let diazr1 know we are with him.

Hugs - Jim

I remember him posting and have been wondering where he was and how he was doing. Prayers go out to Diaz. As stated before miracles do happen. Let's hope so here.  John

Thank you all for your prayers and kind words. I will be visiting him later tonight. I don't know what his condition is but I will share your comments with him. I was told he was sent home this weekend with hospice care. I will keep you all updated on his status.

Hello Everyone,

I just got back from visiting diazr1 and he looks strong but doctors say he is not doing well. He looks peaceful and has been sleeping for the most part but the doctors are only giving him days. He's breathing on his own and his mom has been giving him water and Ensure. It's unbelievable that dr's are only giving him days because he still looks strong. Other friends that visited yesterday were saying he was even watching the laker game last night. He was sleeping today but he did open his eyes and he can still move by himself. His wife has started preparing for his services but his mom is hopeful that he's gonna get better. He had a really bad cough yesterday and was having trouble breathing but friends are saying that compared to yesterday, he's a lot better. I haven't lost hope and I'm praying that he pulls through.

Seems so fresh because of my Dad, very difficult times however wishing diazr and his loved ones strength patience and most of all health to diazr so he and his family can have many.. years ahead with health and happiness... Life is sooo very difficult without loved ones... Wishing them all a happy ending that proves doctors don't always know everything and it's all in God's hand...there are so many positive stories and hopefully diazr and his family would be among them...

Sending prayers to Diaz and to all who love him.

Also want to share that my cousin's 23 year old daughter has a rare stomache cancer, and my cousin has been told on 3 occasions that her daughter wasn't going to make it. She's at home now, and while she struggles, she's out enjoying life with her friends and her family. Miracles happen. I pray for a miracle for Diaz.

Best wishes,

Liana

Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. It is with heavy heart that I inform you that Ricardo Diaz (diazr1) passed away this morning. I'm heartbroken to lose my good friend but I know that he is in a better place now. I pray that God gives his family strength in this difficult time. Again thank you all for your prayers. It made him happy to know that people cared and prayed for him.

So Sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences  to the family. Does anyone know what type of Lymphoma he had. I looked in his profile but there was no type mentioned. John

Hi John,

I think he had hodgkins..I also remember that he was in a clinical trial SGN 35 I think (not sure). I think it didn't work for him...also a couple of months ago he had posted a link where he was asking for donations...but was removed from here really quick. It's really sad maybe if he would have had a chance to get some money he would have gotten into another trial or something! Very dissapointing! :(

Sincerely,

Liz
