Good going Lainey!!! !!! Maybe we should send them all to Dr. OZ as well.  It would be like a double whammy chance for Oprah.  Just a thought. He is quite an advocator.  Probally has her direct telephone number.

Good thinking, sending them Registered mail.

Lainy,
   I am so happy that they were received. As you know, Butch is in hospice care here at home, and he has slipped into a state where we are not able to communicate well. However, I did talk to him, and believe that he hears me. I told him that the letters have been received. I want so much to know that we have helped to bring attention to this problem.

Oh, I am so sorry about Butch. You just made my day though by letting me know that you talk to him about the letters. And you brought to my attention that all the loved ones who are no longer with us due to this bully, also know what we are doing! I love the concept as I am a firm believer that they are all still with us. And I am fully expecting  them to help us out from their end as well! Stay strong and know we think about you and Butch!

Re: OPRAH LETTERS!

Joyce,   my thoughts are with you and Butch.  Take care of yourself, and hold on to each other.

Lainy,  you did such an amazing thing by organizing the letter campaign and moving it along.  A great big thanks!

>>>Here's a crazy thought--does anyone have any pull or know of anyone in the television industry, specifically soap operas, weekly medical drama shows etc?  What if an idea was planted in the writers' minds about a docudrama surrounding  cholangiocarcinoma?  I got re-hooked on my soaps while I was caring for Dad and it seemed to me there was always some current issue that was being emphasized...some story being told.  Just a kooky thought.  Wish I knew of someone~my only claim to fame is that a former employee was previously the nurse for the musician Prince's parents...oh yeah, and also I had a 4th or 5th cousin who won some money on the game show Jeopardy a jillion years ago.

Dear Joyce and Butch,

You are both so so in my prayers.  I strongly feel your hearts are talking to each other as well as you verbalizing to Butch also.

Peace and comfort for Butch and you, Joyce.

Love,

Re: OPRAH LETTERS!

Ok, so I know we have bombarded Oprah but I went to the website once more and there is a place to ask Dr. Oz a question, it says it is private, not for the show but there are different questions and one asks if you are an incredible medical survivor and it made me think of Jeff, I wish Oprah would do a show on him so I sent Dr. Oz a message. Maybe now that Jeff is upstairs he can help us out, he sure was powerful here downstairs.

Re: OPRAH LETTERS!

Tia,  I did the same thing a couple of months ago.  I wrote a letter to Dr. Oz on Oprah's site asking him to do a show about this cancer. 

My thought now is since Dr. Oz is starting his own show in September, now we should bombard him with letters. 

I checked to see if his show's site was on line yet and I couldn't find it.
