On March 21, 2010,my wife passed away after a long battle with cancer. She had the HIPEC procedure done in Boston but her body could not seem to overcome the side affects and complications. Her name was Elizabeth Rumohr, I am not sure what her name was on this site. I love her and always will. To those who have cancer, please stay strong and brave.

Thank you for your love and care of her. I have cancer and I am always aware of how hard my husband tries to stay strong for me. So I say to you, thank you for being strong and brave for your wife.

I'm in shock & my heart breaks for your Elizabeth (our "Lizbiz"). I'm so, so very sorry. It always hits us hard on the board, as we do get to know people who post and they feel like family. As well as it reminds us of what we're up against.
Your wife was a dear woman who fought hard and loved everyone.

May God give you comfort and get you through this very difficult time. Yes, of course, her love will always be with you. I know that she is surrounded by complete love in a better place now, even though that thought doesn't help those she leaves behind. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Take care and thank you for letting us know.

She was greatly loved by so many here, a real inspiration.

I am so very sorry for your loss. She would want you to be happy because you brought her such joy.

My condolences to you and all those who knew her.

My jaw literally dropped reading this. I'm so stunned to hear this. I remember her telling us it was going to be some kind of major surgery but I just figured she would pull through and we would hear from her soon.

She sounded so hopeful - I finally got to hear the "joy" in her post, that she had gotten a chance at surgery and to get better.

I'm just devastated as I write this - angry and sad at the same time. She went by LIZBIZ on the board, and on one of my posts, she had commented that something I said "made her feel a little less alone" that night - one of the most heartwarming responses I can remember. She had been so despondent and hearing that she felt a little better, made me feel better.

We all cared about her and were hoping so much to hear from her that things had gone as planned. Reading your reply is a big shock.

I wanted to thank you for letting us know of her passing - all of us certainly appreciate that, especially during your time of grief. Please accept my sincerest condolences to you and your family on the loss of Elizabeth...I'm just really speechless about now.

Thank you for being a good caregiver to her - she touched many lives here in this world - never doubt that.

I was a friend of Elizabeth's...I am now at a loss of words. Please forgive me...I had no idea that we could lose our Lizbiz.

Please know that she was greatly loved here.

I followed Elizabeth's journey very very closely. It mirrored my sister's story so much. I read every post and was excited and hopeful about her big surgery. I know she too was excited at the prospect the surgery could bring to her and never in my imagination did I think she would not survive.

I am deeply saddened by this news and am crying reading this post. I suppose it offered hope for all of us on this journey. I know Elizabeth fought hard and maintained an upbeat and forever optimistic and the strength to keep fighting.

You are in my prayers and I know she loved you too, and forever will.

I will miss your pm's to me. I had so hoped that the surgery you were so looking forward to so you could finally get this monster under control would work for you. It was a huge surgery but you wanted it, full steam ahead. The lunch I was so looking forward to having with Elizabeth when we realized how close we lived to each other now will not happen. My heart is broken. Rest in peace dear Elizabeth, no more scans, tests and disappointments. To her husband, Elizabeth loved you very much. I am so sorry things did not go the way she had so hoped they would. Now is the time for you to take care of yourself knowing that you two did all you could in this journey.

Elizabeth was and still is one hell of a woman, I cared very much for her, and in reading the comments on her facebook, I was hoping she would get better, I can't believe she went into respiratory distress, how very sad, I know she was looking forward to this surgery, as I believe she was inoperable like I was, and then that HIPEC option opened up for her. I hate to hear this news, and I wonder what would even cause that bile leak.

Thanks for keeping up the farm for her, and her mafia wars, I'm sure she appreciated that, she did really like those games, I will miss her on farmville.

My condolences to you and your family, she was and is a beautiful woman, inside and out, and must go and have a good cry now. Thank you for letting us know the news.

I am so sorry. I knew Liz was having the procedure- she wanted so much to beat this beast and moved forward everyday with so much hope. So much hope of happier times ahead. We all march forward with Liz's fight in our hearts and soul, her battle is also ours. God's love and peaceful memories to you and yours. *hugs from Minnesota*

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of Elizabeth. I have been thinking of her a lot lately + had hoped to see a post from her telling us she was doing well after surgery. She sounded excited about her upcoming surgery, as well as nervous. She was a brave woman + I am so sorry she had complications from the surgery. Thank-you for letting us know; I am so sorry for the pain you must be feeling. Thank-you for your words of encouragement.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife Elizabeth. I was hoping so hard that the surgery would be a great success and that she would post great news about the procedure. I always looked for her posts. She seemed such a beautiful and loving person and the world will miss her bright soul. One thing that was so obvious in her posts was her happiness at having such a great love in you and her joy in your recent wedding. I know words mean so little when compared to the pain that you are in. I can only tell you that you and the rest of Elizabeth's family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am new to this site, so unfortunately I did not have the privelage of "meeting" your wife. From the all the posts in response to your message she was an amazing woman. My hope for you is that you find, in time, peace and comfort. God bless you in these trying times and may you be surrounded by the love of those close to you.

I lost my mom at age 62 just one week previously to colon cancer. It is an awful, awful disease.

May you have peace and be comforted during this time of grief.
