I have been on this forum for a short time (6 months), but I have been on another, similar forum (chronic, spinal pain) for several years.  My time on such forums has been absolutely beneficial and I thank those who make this possible.  But what I really want to do is share an observation I have experienced on this forum.

Because these electonic forums limit our full range of communication and subsequently preclude some aspects of communication (voice, body language and even vision for example), it is necessary for us to write and read with greater regard.  Consequently, I typically write, read, rewrite, reread, rewrite and reread my comments prior to submission.  I want to communicate my message, with feelings, but I also do not want to offend someone through misunderstanding.  The printed word can be very confining.

OK, enough philosophizing.  This is what I want to say.  It is my observation that one particular participant on this forum demonstrates unparalleled compassion, insight, encouragement, and humor to those of us in need.  Her responses are timely and to the point.  I would guess that she doesn't even know that she is helping so many others.

Without causing any embarassment, as that is not my intent, I want to publically thank her for all of her input to this forum.  Her comments have helped me, and I am sure many others as well, in several ways.  It is her stedfast, stare adversity in the face and never backdown, realistic yet optimistic approach to cancer that is so impressive to me.

Thank you TruBrit.  I value your comments and I appreciate that you devote so much time helping the rest of us on this forum.

Even though I'm basically a lurker... (don't comment, just read), I appreciate TruBrit as well. Always encouraging, always helpful. Thanks!

I agree.  Thank you so much Tru.  You have been such a support for so many.  Those of us who are actively having treatment, experiencing all the side effects of chemo, going through surgeries, completed treatment, and/or newly diagnosed so appreciate the input and caring of members who, like Tru, continue to post and support us.

I knew who you were referring to before you revealed.  I love Tru's honesty.  Her path hasn't been easy, but her attitude is always positive.  She inspires me over & over.
