Topic: Tammy Neumann - Wonderful Wife & Mother

Tammy passed peacefully yesterday after battling with Cholangiocarcinoma for 19 months from the initial diagnosis.  I was lucky enough to be with her when she passed, along with my daughter and a few other family members. In the end she likely had liver and kidney failure based on her advanced issues.

I had introduced her to the board back in November of 2007 as you can see by the original post: www.cholangiocarcinoma.org/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=1035

She was 47 years old.

Although she never visited this site itself, I would bring her stories of inspiration and hope from some of the long term survivors. It was always a source of inspiration and encouragement.

Her story is one of many, many comebacks and fighting up to the edge of death's door just to turn and run the other way.  Her life itself has been an inspiration to those around her that were lucky enough to know her.  Her stories have been captured on our family blog: http://tammyhealth.blogspot.com

After several complications including a blood infection, internal bleeding and lots of fevers she was bed ridden for the past few months.  This really changed her outlook, recognizing that if she could not have the quality of life she wanted, she did not want to go on.

She knew what was coming and seemed to accept it with dignity and class.  She would tell people that she would continue to get tired and then one day she would just go to sleep and never wake up again.  Yesterday was that day. 

She will be sadly missed.  Our family is strong and I expect that we will be able to get through this somehow.

Many blessings to all !

Ron ... My heart felt sympathy goes out to you and your family.  I had just read the update on Tammy the other day and lit another candle.  May she rest in peace and the lord give you strength.
God Bless,

Re: Tammy Neumann - Wonderful Wife & Mother

Ron - I am so very sorry to hear about Tammy.  I have been keeping up with your blog for months now and have lite many candles for Tammy.  Please know that  you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. 

Re: Tammy Neumann - Wonderful Wife & Mother

So very sorry to hear about Tammy.  My internet services have been down for several weeks and I have just been able to log back in today.  I was so
anxious to find about everyone but also afraid to find out the news.  My heart just goes out to you; words cannot express how I feel for your loss.
May God give you the comfort that you and your family need and may you
treasure all the wonderful memories that you had together. 
Love Betty

Dear Ron,
My thoughts are with you and your family and I'm so sorry for your loss. Tammy sounds like an amazing soul - the world is a better place because of her.

Re: Tammy Neumann - Wonderful Wife & Mother

Dear Ron,
   My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to you and your family.  Unfortunately, I know how you are feeling.  My darling wife, Lana, went to be with her Savior on May 24, our 34th wedding anniversary.  I am joyful knowing where she is and knowing that I'll be with her when I take my last breath but there's not a day goes by that I don't cry, feeling sorry for myself that I can't physically hold her anymore.
   God bless you, keep you and give you comfort.


God give strength to everyone affected by this terrible disease.
