    Suzanne’s memorial service was held this past Saturday – it was a beautiful and heartfelt service with many friends and family in attendance – it was truly a celebration of her life.

    After Suzanne passed away, Lainy posted a poem called ‘A Letter From Heaven’ – we put the poem on the back of the memorial service program and received so many comments on what a beautiful poem it is – so thank you once again, Lainy, for posting it.

    And thank you to everyone on this board for all of the help and information we received while fighting this disease – the board was like a shining light in a dark place and made all the difference in my sister’s will to fight.

    We are still here at the hospice facility and Suzanne is resting fairly comfortably but there is something so wrong about going through this with your sister that is 6 years younger than you are, although I am honored to be here for her, and with her.

    This is Terri, Suzanne’s sister – hello all – and hello, Hans! Nice to hear from you – thought of you and Kris yesterday. Suzanne is doing ok, despite having been out of treatment since March of this year. She has had many different types of treatment over the last 3 years and none of them were as effective as we hoped they would be & also investigated having a liver transplant but unfortunately wasn’t a candidate. She feels relatively good and gets out fairly often to run errands, take in a movie or eat out. My family and I will be going to visit her and Eddie tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving. I will let her know you were asking about her – it will mean alot to her as she always got so much support from everyone on this board –

    Heather – my sister has cc and is being treated at Emory / Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta. They have a wonderful team of doctors there that are willing to explore every option.

    Paula –
    I just wanted to put my two cents’ worth in – my younger sister was diagnosed with cc last July. She was succesfully resected in February and is doing well now, but she was devastated in July when she had to break the news to us that she had cancer – she was worried about putting that kind of burden on us! What it did for me, however, was allow me the opportunity to participate in this intensely personal fight for her life. I have been able to help her research information and be a caregiver when she had surgery. I would not take a million dollars for being able to be there for her if she needed me. Point being – (and I know I’m not saying anything different than the other posts) let people surround you with love and support. It will help you – and them, too.

    Thanks to everyone for the encouragement and support. This site, and everyone on it has been like a lifeline to us since the beginning of our nightmare that began in July 08. The information that Suzanne has been able to gather from other members of this club has been invaluable and has assisted her in so many ways, like how to deal with her doctors, what to ask, etc. The emotional support could never be replaced because only those who have dealt first hand with this thing can begin to know what it feels like. She is doing so well with her recovery and hopes to go home Monday. Again, thanks to all- please keep her in your prayers as she still has a long way to go.

    Oh, and if anyone is looking for a great surgeon oncologist in Atlanta, I have just the one for you!

    Terri
