I too have to say that I admire your strength & passion. Thanks for making the effort to attend the conference & making our presence known. I think that all of us feel as you do that we don’t want the loss of our loved ones to be in vain. We need to raise that awareness any way we can & fight for a cure. Thanks again. You are a very brave, strong women. You deserve all the praise you are receiving. I am hoping your day is getting better & you will have as good of a week as you possibly can.
Ah Shucks!! you make me blush! No, really, I am not doing anything differently than any of you. Everyone on ths board is so kind, sympathetic, helpful, I feel such a bond with everyone of you. I don’t want my fathers death or anyone elses suffering at the hand of CC. to be in vain. I will try to do anything I can to help raise awareness, and fight for a cure. I have such praise for the famly who started this foundation. After going to the conference this past weekend, I realize more than ever, how few people understand the severity of this cancer.
Again, thanks for the kind words, and brightening an otherwise very sad day for me.
BTW, special thanks for Tiapatty for coming to my dads wake. She made an effort to speak with my family and friends, and her kindness wasnt lost on me in the least. It is so nice to have a fellow CC caretaker living right around the corner!
Barbara has a huge heart, a bright soul and a sharp mind. We have learned this through her stories, as she made the cc journey – hand in hand with her Dad. Her energies are always welcome! And as always, thanks to you too Marion…
I have to share this with all of you. Our sweet Barbara (Roma35) after having lost her dear Dad only 11 days ago, has attended one conference (PSC) on behalf of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and is in the process of attending the next one.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, dear Barbara.
