Dear Christina,

I am so sorry to hear of your mum's passing.  You and your family have my deepest sympathy.  Try to take comfort in knowing that she is no longer suffering or in pain.  My thoughts are with you at this sad & trying time.    Take care.

Hugs,
Darla

Marion,

No worries, we've got your back and will keep things going until your return.  Take care.

Susan, I totally understand what you are going through.  Although this is a rare cancer, unfortunately here your situation is shared with many.  Actually I should say fortunately as you will not find a better place to be then among this phenomenal group of people.  I agree with the others.  Take a deep breath and just try to deal with this one day at a time.  Sometimes it may have to be one hour or even one minute at a time.    More opinions and working with doctors who are very familiar with CC is also good advice.  Please update us when you can and know that we are all here to help & support you both in any way that we can. 

Hugs,
Darla

Victoria,

So sorry to hear this.   Hoping they can get this under control and things will move forward.  I am glad to hear that they are keeping the pain under control.  That is so important.   Also encouraging is the shrinkage.  I'm hoping you will hear from Foundation One soon.   Although I am sure Patrick does not want to be in the hospital, I think that is the best place for him at the moment.   A 3rd opinion can't hurt either.   Please let us know how things are going.   Hoping for the best.  Take care.

Hugs,
Darla

Kathy,

I am so sorry to hear this.  Richard and you have been through a lot and I understand how you feel,  that even though  he has  had 6 years, we always hope for more.    Hospice will be a great help to both of you and will manage his pain which is of the most importance now. 
My heart goes out to you both and I will be thinking of both of you and hoping for the best.  Know that we are here for you to help and support you in any way that we can.
