Enjoyed seeing Tammy pop in from time to time. Wasn't often so had to refresh my memory from her screen name so looked her up. Her last post was Feb 2018:

Why Am I Still Here???

Sounds like she really had a struggle the last couple of years.

My condolences to her family. May she RIP.

On January 31st 2019 Pierre Nanterme, former Accenture chairman and CEO has died.

He abruptly resigned due to health reasons on January 11th 2019.

He publicly announced his diagnosis on July 6th, 2016:
"I was very recently diagnosed with colon cancer. I am pleased to report that I have already had surgery, which went very well. I will now move to the next phase of my treatment. I have been advised by my doctors that I will be able to stay actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the company throughout this process. I will, however, reduce my travel during the treatment period, which is expected to be a few months."

58 yo male at diagnosis: T1bN0M0, 0/15 nodes, low grade/moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma
03/2016 colonoscopy #1: 2 small polyps removed in left colon; CEA = 1.3
04/2016 colonoscopy #2: caecum sessile 3.5 cm polyp piecemeal removed with kind of clear margins
05/2016 "prophylactic" laparoscopic right hemicolectomy - bleeding, leak, infection
06/2017 CT scan, colonoscopy OK; CEA = 1.6
A lot of funny stuff discovered by CT scans in liver, kidney, lungs, arteries, gallbladder and a lymph node

We have lost a sister, Shana, remembered by all of us and especially by her friend who wished to let us know of her passing.

It is with a heavy heart that I share this with you.
I know she wasn't actively involved here as of late, but none the less she was a voice of continued positivity and awareness. I'd been exchanging Text messages with Shana for the better part of a year. A couple days ago I sent her a text. I never received a response, which was unusual for her. After having very odd emotional experiences last night I googled her today and came upon this.

I will miss the communications I had with her. Just a week prior to her passing she revealed some troubles she was having after liver ablation and more chemo. I'd leave a forum post, but I don't think I could do her justice and my heart is quite heavy at the moment.

My friend you did MORE than do her justice
you raised her up in our Love Peace and Harmony

SIncere respects and condolences to all her friends and family

Rest in Peace Shana
