This week we lost another wonderful woman off our message board. "Shabby" was 33 with a sweet little girl who I think is five.
This last month has been very rough on our group and I am torn about visiting the website. I want to be there to remember this wonderful woman and support the rest of the ladies who are also mourning. However it is so difficult to keep reading about these young women losing their battle and leaving behind young children. It forces me to assess my own mortality and examine the reality that I could one day be in a similar situation in 6 months or 6 years. It will always be in the back of my mind and I try to always keep it there - hidden and locked away. The recent losses has opened that door of fear but I can't avoid the message boards. I need those women and they need me and we all need to be able to remember and mourn those who have passed and support those that are still fighting everyday.
As many survivors say - Forget Awareness - Find a CURE!
