This is so sad. My sympathies go out to both her mother and son.

How sad! Dan, you're so wonderful to reach out and help a stranger like that. That's what makes the DIS so special. I'm sure Sylvia was very grateful for all the support you gave her. May God bless Sylvia's family and offer them comfort. And God bless you, too Dan!

Prayers to her family. I didn't have the priviledge of knowing Sylvia, but she was truly blessed to have you and many others as a true friend.

I am sad for Sylvia and her family and so angry that this terrible disease is still taking down women. Women of ALL ages, races, backgrounds, and religions! It's not fair that she has to leave this world, and leave behind a beautiful son who won't get to share many of his firsts with his mom!

Let's all say a prayer. A prayer for Sylvia, her family and for a cure for breast cancer.

At least she's no longer suffering. My prayers go out to her entire family.

Like many of you I was afraid to open this thread because I knew what message was contained in it.

I never "met" Sylvia in person just on the boards but I have followed her posts over the years. My heart breaks for her family but I hope they take some comfort that Sylvia now feels no pain.

I really don't know what else to say that has not been said a hundred times already but I will be praying for Sylvia's family, especially her little boy Nick.
