Hey, everybody -

A good friend from the Colondar isn't doing well, see the e-mail from a friend of hers below. Michele was the June 2006 model (http://www.colonclub.com/Michelle_Cervone.html) and, as you can see is in need to some divine intervention. Can you send a prayer her way or, if you are not inclined to pray, send some good karma/vibes/ju-ju/etc. Thanks.

Mich's doing ok. She's not getting better though. She's down to 100lbs., they removed more of her intestine, her ovaries, scraped her peritiam(?), burned spots on her liver, & clipped some of her bladder. She has 4 ft of small & 1 ft of large intestine remaining. She's currently living with a ileostomy bag which doesn't allow the necessary nutrients in her system so she has to hydrate on a daily basis. The Doctors may give her a feeding tube to help her gain weight before she starts chemo. It's been hell for her!! I wish there was a miracle cure for everyone who has to deal with cancer!!! It's so emotionally and physically draining.

She says she hasn't been replying to her emails or phone calls. She's been pretty depressed and has been put on Lexapro to try to get her mood stabilized. Yesterday she was not well...her blood pressure dropped to 80 over 50 and she felt very faint. We just don't know what to do to get her to feel better.

I sent an email to Choose Hope requesting they add your link to their website. I just ordered 100 colon cancer wristbands for friends and family to wear to show their support. I'm hoping that Paula from Choose Hope adds The Colon Club because you guys really helped Michelle deal with the disease when she was first diagnosed. Thank you sooo much for that! She's a great girl and I hate seeing her go through all this pain and suffering!!!

    Consider it done. Whenever someone stumbles from this disease, it affects ALL of us, regardless of if we know them personally or not.

    My heart, prayers and energy go for her to get through this hard time.

    Oh, Bob....my heart is full, and it's spilling out of my eyes! What a terrorist this beast is!!!!
    I will be praying, and will also let the gal know who's church has a 87% survival rate going for all the cancer warriors on their prayer list (Interesting, the average age of these people is 72.....).
    Hugs to you AND to Mich.

    I will pray for Michelle. You may want to look at the past post about Protocel for what I was chastised about here. But it could help her. Let me know if you have questions about it.

    Bob,

    Michelle will be added to my prayer list. I just pulled out my 2006 Colondar and looked at her sweet face. This disease is just awful. The semi-colons have powerful prayers - we are here for Michelle.

    Hi Sweetie,

    Michele, please know that we are sending out the most wonderful, warm, loving, supportive hugs and vibes to you. You could say that many many strangers are praying for you, but the truth be told, we aren't strangers. We are all connected by the most difficult of things. We instantly embrace one of our own, in good times as well as difficult times.

    We pray for you. We cry for your pain. We surround you with positive energy and unending love. Please know you are in our thoughts and in our hearts.

    Michele, may God grant you the power to find the strength and peace that already lies within you.

    I pray for you.

    Dear Michelle;
    Some days are bleak
    Some days are fine
    The thing to remember is you are on our minds.
    I send you a "RAINBOW" 'cos that is my way,
    To hope that you feel much healthier today.

    Michelle.......the RAINBOW from Kanga as CSN folks know carries a message from all of our friends. A spiritual love made up of all the colours of the rainbow.
    Our love goes to you from across the Pacific, Ross and Jen

    I hope you don't mind, but I forwarded a note to our 06 models to let them
    know about Michelle. Everyone has been asking about her and until now, I
    didn't have anything to tell them.

    In any case, Bob Hendrickson (Mr. July) posted something to his group and
    e-mailed me a bunch of their responses. (Attached.) I wanted to send to
    you to see if you would either print them out or forward them to
    Michelle...or if you think I should.
