    Thank you, Cheerful

    I really wished and hoped that the news on Pinky's condition would be better.  I hope she is resting comfortably and at peace.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Pinky and all of her family and friends at this very difficult time.

    Pinky, I hope you know how much you mean to us....

    Dear Pinky and Mr. Pinky, I am a fellow long-term survivor of this cancer and I, like many others here, relied on Pinky for her informative and wise-counsel posts.  Her medical background made her voice particularly authoritative and useful.  I will miss her, and I am sorry she has begun a different journey than the one she hoped.  I hope she is at peace and in comfort, surrounded by those who love her and are committed to her comfort and ease.  Mr. Pinky, it seemed from Pinky's posts that you and she are a solid team (as my husband and I are), and I am so sorry for what you are now going through.  I hope the time you two have left together is something you can treasure after the sorrow eases in time.  My sympathy and best wishes to Pinky, Mr. Pinky and the whole Pinky family.  Oldbeauty

    Beautifully put, oldbeauty.

    Beautifully put, oldbeauty. It's great of you to reach out to Mr. Pinky et al, I would not have thought of that. Bless you.

    Article: I’m sorry I didn’t beat cancer

    I found this article interesting. Unfortunately the author died shortly after penning it.

    Thank you CQ for posting that.

    Our dear Pinky is leaving us and that is heartbreaking. Reading this article confirms for me what I have slowly realized and learned that the emotional side to cancer for me is far tougher to reconcile than the awful physical side. Having to be strong for others is exhausting. Dealing with family members or friends who refuse to acknowledge that this is a fatal illness is exhausting, painful and isolating. Pinky has left us a legacy, like many others with her posts that will live on to help others with their struggles, physical or emotional. She will be missed.

    Oh no! I was thinking about

    Oh no! I was thinking about pinky and missing her presence here on the boards. And it looks like the worst has come to pass. I feel so sad. She's such a fighter and has always been an encouragement to me and many of the ladies on this board. Praying for Pinky that she may have peace and for her husband and family while they go through this painful time. I'm heartbroken.
