"Be grateful for those who have opened the door before you, they have shown you new possibilities." When I came across this quotation, I immediately thought of all of you here at CSN. Thank you all! As I read these posts, I am still learning of how I can take better care of myself. God bless you!
Love & Prayers, Patty

    Well said Patty,
    I think the hardest thing to do is be positive every day. Your quote is wonderful. The folks here helped me, I hope I helped someone else. The reason we all post is to help others and in that light, we help ourselves.
    Live life everyday to the fullest,

    I have a little wall trivet that says "Each day is a gift to be shared". I agree, to whatever extent we can live it.

    I appreciate everyone who takes the time to show up on these boards to either ask questions (especially ones I forgot about or didn't think to ask) or to answer the questions. I feel we can all learn something, no matter how small or how big.

    One thing I have learned over the years in fighting this, is "think outside the box".

    I also have a book by Vickie Gerard called "There's No Place Like Hope". Vickie lost her battle with breast-to-bone cancer after 16 years, but her book is timeless and is for all cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, etc. regardless of the type of cancer you have. I have leaned on this book more times than I can count to offer me strength and guidance, just like everyone here has.

    I too, hope that I have been able to help someone think about something differently or that I was able to help in some way. Makes this fight a little easier to bear.

    Beautiful quote
    This quote sounds as if it were written for all cancer survivors. Those who opened the door are now here to help those who come after them.

    Thanks for sharing this Patty.

    Hugs and prayers,
