Hi...for those of you who remember me!
I was on Facebook the othe day and saw a picture of Joanne Smith Duke pop up and i was getting on the comments to say how nice it was to see her face! I had no idea of her passing last year. One of her friends was nice enough to email me the details . I was so sooo sorry to hear. Joanne started this site at the time I was diagnosed with anal cancer. What a wonderful gift she has left all of us! I don't need to tell you all how wonderful this site is, as you are all experiencing the suport, comfort, and comraderie found here. I had left the site, after moving on to other primary cancers. My anal cancer had spread to my liver, but was successfully removed going on 3 years ago. 2 years ago I ended up with breast cancer, and have since recovered successfully from that. So I have popped around on different cacner discussion boards, and then eventually didn't visit at all, with work, life, etc. It was nice to see some familiar faces when I popped in today. I saw that someone had asked about me, so thought I would update. Feeling great, strong and forever hopefull that this journey is behind...haha...forgot we all used that term on this site...me!!
Wish you all well and am so glad that Joanne left us with this amazing gift!!!
