Re: Dad's journey ended tonight

I'm so sorry you've lost your dad. Dad's are especially hard to lose :cry: I'm grateful he's no longer in pain.

Re: Folfiri + Avastin = Damage to Vocal Chords?

I'm sure I saw a post on here about the raspy hoarse voice issue. I have had a raspy voice for months. I do also have allergy issues, so I had assumed my sore throat and hoarse-ness was due to allergies. I was just going to ask if anyone had Avastin related voice/throat issues. Next time I have chem...

Re: Where do I go from here?

I am so sorry, hon. I don't know what to say to make you feel better - I feel we'll all go through this sooner or later - and many of us already have and are still here. Some have passed on - all are honored, loved and cherished. Please know you've got a heck of a lot of warriors and survivors on yo...

dear aunt looking for a triple negative breast cancer board

My dear auntie sat with me while I recovered from my resection surgery in Feb. 2011. She came to my house to take care of me when my family wasn't here. She drove me to almost every chemo treatment. Only when one of my girls was home would she not go. She bought me lunch, refused to let me pay for g...
