    Hello all. My husband's cousin, with whom he grew up like a sister, is dying. She was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer a few months ago, and frankly, it's amazing that she's made it this long. We have to go to the boondocks of West Virginia, so I won't be on after this evening.

    Ladies, Donna was diligent about getting her exams every year. Nothing was caught, and when she started experiencing what she thought were pulled muscles, they found the cancer, at Stage IV. It's spread all over her, and the doctors sent her home from the hospital, declaring that there is nothing more they can do for her. This must make us that much more dedicated to doing our exams without fail. Donna's death cannot be in vain. Make a promise to yourselves and your families that you will make sure you do what you are supposed to do to take care of yourselves.

    If someone, or a group of someones could pick me up two of whatever comes out this weekend, I'd appreciate it. I'll pay back whatever it costs. Given what's going on, this is trivial, I know, but I'd like to have something positive to come back to.

    Most importantly, please keep Donna, her husband, two grown children, and grandson in your prayers. And, my husband, too.

    Thanks in advance for your help and prayers.

    Dara Allen

    I'm so sorry to hear this DaraAllen! :sad2: My prayers are with you all. :grouphug:

    And on the VMK side of things, don't worry. I'll get you two of everything if at all possible, and I'll try my darndest to get you a Pirates 1/5 pin so you won't have to worry about Host queues and everything when you get back. Whenever you do come back and feel like it, just send me a PM and we'll figure out a place and time to meet. God bless you all! I'm so sorry you all have to go through this. :guilty:

    Dearest Dara,

    You, Donna and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Donna sounds like a very special person who has touched the world. I think she would be proud to know that during your time of grief you took the time to remind us all to take care of our health.

    Bless you!

    Wow, that's hard. My grandmother was thought to have breast cancer, but she went into surgery a few days ago and said it wasn't. :confused3
    I'll keep you in my thoughts.

    Dara I am very sad to hear that. Donna sounds like a very sweet and caring person. Dont give up. If god wants her to live she will. I have heard of such miracles. Maybe read one of the Chicken Soup books! They always cheer me up!

    Take care! You and Donna will be in my thoughts!

    I am really sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this trying time. Give your husband a big hug for me. It is always so sad to lose someone to cancer. I lost my grandmother to ovarian cancer. As I told you in VMK, I am more than happy to get you 2 of everything new that comes out. I am sending buckets of Pixie Dust your way.

    Thank you all. It is so nice to have positive thoughts and prayers following me to West Virginia. I'll hook up with you all when I get back. Would someone bump this periodically so I can find it when I get back? Or, so as not go bum out everyone, just pm.

    thanks again. hugs and kisses.
