    Another friend losing battle with cancer

    Six months ago my 46 year old next door neighbor lost her 4 year battle with cancer. She had so much courage I thought she just might have won. The cancer spread. I wasn't close to her, she was much younger and her kids were still at home. We would talk at the driveway, or mailbox. Her husband is so nice, and he is going thru a lot. (His Dad is also very sick with kidney problems related to diabetes)
    Last night my husband learned that ANOTHER friend is losing her battle with lymphoma (sp.) Again not a close friend, more of an aquaintence. She
    and her husband sat behind us at Church, and we would occassionally see them at Church events, and we had several mutual friends. Last night DH learned that she is in Hospice, and they are giving her 6 weeks. Again, we thought she was doing better, and she just might have a chance. Again, she is in her mid 40s.
    Both women had healthy life styles, ate healthy, exercised, didn't smoke, were not overweight etc.
    If you are healthy, be thankful. Anything can happen and it does.

    Every day is a gift of God, Seashell. I am so thankful, and times like these remind me.

    Praying for your friends, their families, and loved ones.
    I also pray for a cure, much sooner than later.

    More proof, life IS too short! I have a former classmate that has been battling for a while now. Her cancer has returned. I pray and I pray. Best thing I can do. I ask for strength and comfort for her. Many thoughts to your friends at this time.

    So very sorry to hear about your friend and sending my condolences to you and the family. Whenever I hear this I try and remember those that do make it thru this harsh disease and are real survivors. There is hope for many We have to hold on to that and every day that we have.

    I lost Mom and Dad to cancer. Both very healthy ... Dad did smoke, but the cancer was not related to that at all. Mom, very healthy. Early 70's

    3 very close friends recently passed; another, ex fiance ... diagnosed with stomach cancer. Also, very healthy. All in their 40's and 50's.

    Then, many other acquaintances, all very young.

    Scary isn't it. It seems to be younger and younger these days.

    I am sorry about your Mom & Dad.
    Yes, it does seem that younger and younger people are getting Cancer. The earlier it is caught the better chance for treatments to be successful.

    I'm sorry to hear that Seashell.

    We need 3 things to survive. Food. Water. Air. It's time our Government, FDA, whatever comes clean about all three and what's in it that is making us so sick. Babies born with cancer as well as kids and young adults with cancer is on the rise and at a very fast pace.
    One thing is for sure. It's not "natural".

    Saw a mutual friend last weekend. He said she was not doing good, and is in a lot of pain. I just want her to be pain free and at peace. Thoughts and prayers are in order.

    I feel this inexlicable anger when read all this. My mom of 94 says when she was young cancer was a very rare disease. It was whispered about ... it really was not nearly the general disease like it is today.

    I am so sure it has to do with ... well, ... the stuff we eat, breathe, use, whatever.

    Stuff in our environment must be causing this widespread epidemic. It can NOT just be random bad luck.

    Every time I breathe in the fumes of my cleaning liquids (one example only) I wonder: is this carcinogenic??

    When I spray on anti-perspirant, I wonder: does this have to do with the epidemic of breast cancer?

    Usually we are told not be hypcondriacs, but I realy wonder what role is being played by exhaust fumes (just sit in heavy traffic!), cosmetics, toiletries, cleaning agents ... etc. icon_evil.gif

    (Just read the list of chemicals in a single facial night cream!)
