[MOL] Re: Linda/your sister



Linda, I just finished reading your message and it really touched my heart.
I am sorry for your loss of your sister.  None of us can ever truly know
what that means until it happens to us, but we can imagine how sad it must
be to let go of someone that you love in this life.  I know there will be
many times you will go to turn to her or talk with her only to realize that
she is not here with you and you will hurt each time.  Your sister will live
on in the hearts of you and the rest of your family and all of the people
who knew her or knew of her.  She has now crossed over to her eternal life
with God and someday you will meet again.  I pray that your heart will
always carry a picture of her, and a warm loving feeling when you think of
her.  God Bless you.....and thank you for thinking of the rest of the people
here who are still cancering.        Carla

lost

my

as

>I am also grateful for the help many of you have given to me, and also to
her.
>Some of you sent messages to the pharmaceutical company Genentech asking
that
>she be allowed quicker access to the antibody. You will be glad to know
that as
>of February 1, the antibody will be given to 35 women each month, rather
than
>8. Still not enough, if even one more woman dies waiting for this, but my
>family will take any victories we can get right now!

>Two weeks ago, we purchased a supply of Cantron, Bromelain and
Glutathimine. If
>there is anyone out there who needs this, please email me at
Epstein.Faxon.com
>and I would be glad to send to you free of charge. We held off on giving
this

It

>My sister's message would be one of hope.  Every day we wake up there is an

affect
>the outcome of this evil disease.  My sister led a beautiful and happy
life.
>The beauty of her life is what made her hold on so tightly and our love for
her
>made us fight with her. My deepest fear is that we may have missed some
vital
>piece of information, or some treatment available that could have saved
her.
>The most difficult task in facing this disease with her has been accessing
>information. That is why the importance of this list cannot be overstated,
and
>why I wanted to write to both give and seek comfort in the knowledge that I
am
>not alone, and that together, we can all make a difference.

>Thank you!
