Hi everyone, This is about my Mother in law. Some may remember me from back in 2005 where my own Mom was fighting PC and then 7 years later my Mother in law was diagnosed with it. This is 3 months late but I haven't been back to the board since she passed away in October. The holidays were hard. She had a good run and lived life to the fullest until her last month. Even in the last few days of her life she was alert and laughing, just getting weaker. She really had a peaceful passing and we are all grateful for that.

I think about many of you often and stop in to see how everyone is doing. I'm so amazed and happy that Micheal PA and his wife Sherrie are still fighting. I know that there is the bereavement side of the board that I should visit but for some reason, I just love this side. I think everyone's experience is different and interesting and many times so inspiring. I know there are others that have been here for a long time as well and that you are an inspiration to others.

MY mother in law was an amazing and inspiring woman. She chose to go through Gemzar treatments for a few months then nothing for a while and when the cancer returned, she didn't want harsher treatments. It was her choice and we respected that. She may not have had a long time to live after forgoing the treatments but she lived well. She was a spiritual woman and truly left us with many wise words and blessings. In two years time she was able to welcome two new grandchildren into the world, attend many of her church functions and weekly outings with her friends and something I was praying for, attend my son's wedding. Anyway, I wish you all well in your fight and pray hard all the time that there will be some new research for this dreaded disease.

I often think of this quote when I see life just passing by too fast.

'Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.'

Bless You All!
