    I’m so sorry

    and sad for what your so very young sister and you and the family have been through.  I cannot offer any advice regarding her treatment.  Cancer is a terrible disease and treatments don’t always go as planned.   I do want to offer my condloence and I sincerely hope that in time your beautiful memories will bring you comfort. In the meantime take good care of yourself, those two children are going to need their uncle. 

    Peace to you and your family

    My sincere sympathy

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and your sister so young, with a young family as well. It is truly tragic and very unfair. 

    My advice as far as her past treatment is to try not to second guess. I am sure her Oncologist did what he thought was best for her situation. The cardiac arrest was an extremely unfortunate event which took her life. 

    It is never easy to lose someone you dearly love. I pray you will find peace in the coming months; but for now, take the time to mourn your sister, and take comfort in the fact that she will no longer have to suffer.

    So sorry to hear of your sister and going through this.  I'm not able to help you with your question, but know that she is in my thoughts and prayers.  Your a good sister to come on these boards and try to get some answers for her.  I'm so sorry for your loss.  It's hard when you have no answers and she is no longer with you.
