I just read in the Facebook group that AWK has passed away.  She was the first to respond when I first came on this board last year, and she was such a source of inspiration for me and so many others here.  Unfortunately, I do not have any more information at this time.  I will share whatever I can find out.

I recognized her name  and remember seeing her posts at times.   I didnt know her very much but feel very sad by this news.  May her family and friends be comforted.

Chris, thank you for sharing this. This is difficullt news. I was just thinking about her and a few others and knew that she had had some struggles with her treatment.  I know there were many here who were also a fan of hers, as she was an inspiration and had a wonderful spirit.  

This is very sad.  I am tired of losing such wonderful women.

So sad to hear this.  I think she was also the first person to welcome me.  Our cancer fight was quite similar.  It is hard to think that she is gone as are so many others.  Thanks for sharing.

Chris,

My heart is breaking. Anne was so strong and positive for so long. I have missed her on our board and was so hoping that the treatments were going to work. But, I know she had been feeling bad for quite some time. She is at peace now and painfree.  Thank you very much for letting us know.

Love and Hugs,

Cindi

Oh no.. :( Although I never had the chance to talk to her, I've seen her posts while I was looking through this forum. So sad. May she be at peace.

Thanks for this posting Chris. It is so sad to hear of her passing, but it's comforting to see how everyone watches out for each other here even when the outcome is not one anyone wanted for her. Hugs to all.

Breaks my heart..  and it is so unfair.  I truly hate this demon.  Dear ladies, I do so pray you stay healthy.  No more losses to the evil one.  I pray for AWK and her family and friends.  Comfort, peace and acceptance.

Here is the obituary with the funeral arrangements and guest book.

I do have her husband's address and if you would like to send a card, PM me and I will relay that info.

I am so sorry to hear of Anne's passing. I just got on the Board as a friend of mine on the Board mentioned Anne's passing so I checked Anne's obituary and saw that she was only in her mid 50s - much too young to pass away.

I also looked her up on the Board and saw that her UPSC was at an advanced stage.  I did not know her as I joined the UPSC Board in the spring of 2011.  I was diagnosed with Stage 1 of UPSC in February of 2011.  I send my condolences and sympathy to her family as I know these next few weeks will be very difficult for them.

Rest in peace, sweet Anne.  All those clinical trials she went through - I don't think she ever had a day of NED.  This is just so sad!

Love,

Heartbroken to hear of Anne's passing.  I've been recently thinking of her absence and was concerned, now I hear this.  Like a few of you mentioned, she also was one of the first to welcome me when joining this board a year ago and I appreciated her support.  May she rest in peace.

May she rest in peace. Hate hate hate cancer. Her fight is done - ours continues. I was wondering how we would find out about one another - perhaps a facebook group for us would help us to check in on one another. I am not always on this blog everyday, but I am on facebook. I try to keep facebook my happy place so this is one of the places I can talk about our mutual illness. Maybe a facebook group would give us access to each other's lives and give us a hopeful outlook that life is so much more than this stupid cancer? You can find me at Billie Crandall Brady - Oswego, NY.

my daughter has been delegated the task to let the board  know when something happens to me whether it's cancer related or not.  Many family members have been good enough to inform us when they lose a loved one.  I really appreciate the opportunity to be able to send my condolences.  Thanks,Chris, for telling us about Anne.
