The Journey Ends

Today, my beautiful sister, Christina, lost her battle. She was only 40, 39 when dx, and leaves behind her husband and three beautiful children 8, 6, and 4. She fought til the very end. And I mean she fought damn hard. There was not a treatment or cancer hospital she did not seek advice. In the end, her tiny body just could not take it anymore and she stopped responding to treatments. I know now she is at rest and peace.

Thank you for all of your support and advice here. I visit you all every day. And while I do not always respond to the posts, I read them, and pray for all of you on this journey. I pray we get closer to finding a cure for this terrible disease.

Love to you all!

    I am so sorry to hear of the death of your beautiful Christina. I can think of few things to say at this moment beyond a lament of profanities! This disease sucks!

    So Sorry for your loss
    Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss, and for the loss of your sister's family... Cancer is so vile!!!! I lost my mom 7 weeks ago tomorrow to colon cancer, so I can relate with how you are feeling.

    Sending prayers and comfort to you.

    She is in a better place
    I know it is hard right now (having lost my wife about a month ago.) Each day will bring memories and dreams. Just know that someday you will see her again and now, she is in a place with no pain, no drugs and no cancer. Meanwhile she will continue to watch over her family from above.

    Dear

    From Roger and Kim

    Dear Marie, We are so sorry to hear of your sisters passing. There is comfort in knowing she is no longer in pain and she is resting in peace. It has been amazing and inspiring to watch how supportive and caring you have been to Christina. You fought damn hard as well and your overall contribution to this board- to folks like us- has been appreciated by many. Christina's children are fortunate to have an Aunt whose love for their mother will no doubt flow straight to them.
    Although the journey for you and Christina is over, we will keep your strength with us as we continue to fight.
    Love and Sparks,
    Kim and Roger

    Dear Marie:
    I am so very sorry. Christina put up the good fight, it sounds like she so wanted to live. No more chemo, pain or cancer but that is little comfort at a time like this to those left behind with their grief.

    From one caregiver to another, I am so very sorry.

    Hugs - Tina

    Oh Marie, I am so sorry.
    Oh Marie, I am so sorry. Thank you for being an incredible support to Christina- she was never alone in this battle and all of us will take a bit of her courage and fight into us as we move forward. I am so sad for those she left- 3 young kids- makes me cry Marie! I hold all of you in prayer and so hopeful that the hours, days and weeks, months ahead will be filled with loving family and friends that support you all and bring you peace.
