    I want to wish you the best of luck with the pet and ct scan. And, to let you know that I am praying for you.

    Just take it one day at at time, one test at a time.

    You can get thru this! You have to fight and fight hard! We're here to support you!

    Please stay strong...
    I want to encourage you to please stay strong. I know how terrified you are feeling right now.

    Do you have anyone you can speak directly with for support? A counselor, therapist, clergyman, close friend, etc?

    You have support here that's for sure, but it helps to speak with someone face to face. Are your doctors certain that the tumors are malignant? Is there a chance they could be benign?

    Have your doctors discussed treatment options in the event that the tumors are malignant? or are they awaiting the scan results?

    Right now you need as much loving support as you can get. The best way to share this news is to be up front with your kids and the co-workers you are close to.

    I am not where you are in your cancer journey, but I believe you need to keep fighting. Don't give up or give in to this disease. Please don't do anything to harm yourself. I know it's overwhelming and feels like too much to bare. I don't know you, but I care about you and what happens to you. I mean that from my heart. I know you feel helpless and perhaps hopeless, but please stay strong. I know personally how it feels to want to give up, to end the suffering and stop fighting, but your kids need you and I'm sure you must have extended family that love you too.

    As much as I myself hate waiting on tests, I want to encourage you to wait on those test results, and discuss all available treatment options with your doctors. Don't give into the fears that are coming at you right now.

    I'm going to put out the call for prayers and encouragement for you. Please, please continue to communicate with us here. Vent, yell, cry, reach out - we are here for you!

    Please keep praying and stay as positive as you can. There are alot of women here who've battled circumstances similar to what you're facing and I'm sure they'll have lots of advice.

    I just want you to know that we're here for you and praying that whatever you're facing in the future will be doable, not only for you but for your family, who need and love you.

    Yes! There are so many
    Yes! There are so many possibilities out there for our disease. This sounds terrible, but there may be something that can be done. And of course, I always believe that prayers can work magic. It's not time to give up yet. Get more information before you jump off the cliff. (in my humble opinion)

    I think any one of would be
    I think any one of would be feeling this way too. And some can attest to having dealt with this. But the important part is they are alive and kicking cancer's butt. and you can too, While it is not something we want and is devastating you can live with this and thrive. They need to take care of the tumors so you can get relief for your symptoms. but hang in there. post often and we will be on the bus supporting you through this tough time.

    Oh, Kit Kat I am so sorry to hear about your health issues. It makes no sense, no matter how you look at it... Please keep strong, and fight!



    Your family and kids will be supportive, once you find out your treatment course -- and options.

    Strength, Courage and Hope.

    Oh, Kit Kat--don't give up
    We need you here. So glad you're seeing a counselor--it's really helped me and many others here. It's okay to have a bad day, rant, rave, cry, scream--but the next day, get back on that horse and fight, fight, fight.

    I'm sending you all my positive energy and strength. Keep us posted.

    Hugs, Renee
