    My grandma was 81 and opted out of chemo and radiation. She also had previous health problems and was diabetic. She was ready to go and we respected that.

    Support your grandma in her chemo and radiation and you never know!! There are tons of success stories on here. the main thing is to be supportive!

    My grandmother is 77 and otherwise is good health. So full of life and ready to fight and win. But it’s so discouraging to read stuff online, I hate that this is happening to her. I’m not ready to say goodbye to her, I don’t think I ever will.

    I’m so sorry Senaida. I’m so devastated, I didn’t even look at the dates. So sorry. I’m devastated with my abuelita’s diagnosis. She started chemo today. From what I’m reading and seeing online, people don’t usually do too good with this rare cancer. I want to believe in my heart that she will be ok. I get sick when I think of her not making it.

    Senaida, I just checked out the Obituary of your Abuela, and she was so beautiful! I can just picture her being just as she is described and can see why she was loved so very much. Thank you so much for posting that as I don’t think we get posts like that and it puts so much more to the person we have come to know. Hope you are all doing good and I have a feeling the apple (you) didn’t fall far from the tree (Abuela)!

    Thank you all SO much!

    My abuela was diagnosed with bile duct cancer on July 31st and passed on October 31st. She was given 3 months and thats what she got. She was a wonderful giving soul. She had nothing but two drawers full of stuff when she passed. She was always giving of herself. She gave her car away her house and was always buying people things for themselves and their children. She would make burritos and chili for people all over town. Her funeral took place on November 4th. It was packed and beautiful. To hear how she touched people by constantly helping them kissed my heart.

    She will be missed and I dont think anyone can fill her shoes. She was a great great great women.

    Thank you all for your help and support. I was able to lean on you since day one.

    Dearest Senaida, I know this will sound strange, but your Abuela is preparing to leave in a most beautiful way. I remember at Teddy’s end how my daughter and I felt so priviledged to be let into this other world. Especially when he started greeting family from the other side. There are no words to describe the Peace that came over him, us and in the room. We also believe he was teaching us life lessons right up to the end. You are amazing and apparently you have already learned many life lessons from her.
