So sad tonight

I'm so sad tonight. I went to a committee meeting for our Relay For Life tonight. I found out that one of the sweetest women I've ever met, was told today that her colon cancer will likely end her life in the next few months. She told us that she would see us at Relay in May, but she'd be looking down on us from heaven.

I'm so sad and so upset. I hate cancer more every day.

Gail, I am so sorry. I feel so helpless too and I just can't begin to understand.

Gail, you are such a good friend to so many people. I guess what you heard her say is what I fear saying the most. To know that the fight is coming to an end. I will pray for her peace and yours. Best to you. Jean

Cancer is a terrible disease and takes many fine people each year from our lives.

We can only pray that for those whose time is short that they have peace in their minds and hearts and are pain free.

Let's all pray that one day soon there is a cure, not just for ourselves and those we hold dear, but for all mankind.

You are a dear lady Gail and I know you will bring comfort to your friend.

Hi Gail,

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Don't know what to say, other than don't let it doubt your own cancer free status. Another one to the beast... but maybe not, maybe she will pull through alright.

Hugs to you,

Thanks, everyone. I'm praying for a miracle for her. I met her at a training event for Relay. We share the same first name and the same cancer, and we just bonded right away. She's such a dear, wonderful person.

I will be thinking of you.. and for your friend in that you find some peace. I do believe that when people do leave this earth they do continue to be with us.
