Thank you all.
I’m so lost some days wondering all the ‘ifs’. I know I did my best but still wondering what more I could have done. Wasn’t looking for a cure..but something to keep the cancer in place so we would have had more time with mom.
Thank you Lainy, Marions, Catherine, Gavin, Darla and everyone else here on the board who answered and helped me along our battle.

Nancy,….My heart goes out to you and your family. Knowing you the way I do and the enormous effort made to find answers to your Mom’s cancer, you must be assured that everything that could have been investigated was done by you.
Hugs and love,

I am so very sorry. I lost my mother a few years ago, and know the pain you are feeling, even when you know that she is not suffering anymore. Take care of yourself in the coming weeks and months.November 30, 2016 at 3:09 pm #93471darlaParticipant
I am so sorry for your loss. You have my deepest sympathy. Yes, at least for mom it is a blessing that she is no longer suffering or in pain. Thinking of you at this sad & trying time.

Dearest Nancy, I am so very sorry to read this about your dear sweet Mom. She fought with so much grace and dignity and getting to know you through your emails, I know that you are a special, courageous Daughter. I don’t believe the Moms every really leave their children and she will always be around you. One day you will find yourself putting all the hard memories behind you as all good memories will take their place. You are a very special lady just like your Mom.
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain,
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
For everything beautiful that you see
will bring a memory of me.November 30, 2016 at 11:11 am #93472middlesister1Moderator
I am very sorry for your loss. You were a wonderful supporter and investigated every avenue to help her fight against the disease.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family,

After 8 months of courageous flight against CC, Heaven gained another angel. I am still in shock and denial. My mom gave it all she got and fought till the end. She was diagnosed with CC in March 2016 and lost her battle on Nov. 16, 2016.
My mom started immunotherapy but was in the hospital for pain management. I took a short trip home and never imagine she would leave us while I was gone. My dad and brother said she had a good day. Wanted to have her hair washed, was alert and ate. She rested but drifted into a coma and passed later that night.
Mom…you fought hard so you can stay with us….the only comfort is knowing you are no longer in pain.
