so sad...

we lost yet another amazing woman to this vicious disease.

Goodbye Sarah - you have helped me to realise that we CAN fight it if it comes back. And that we can also choose a dignified death.

But we'll miss you. I'll miss you. Your family most of all, will miss you.

So. It sucks. But Sarah has left the building!


  1. Thinking of you...have lost more friends than I want to count...but remember each one and the gift that they were in my life....I hate this disease but have been blessed by some pretty incredible women on this journey...

  2. I am new here and hesitate to send a comment. I don't want it to take you to my own blog that is writing the story of the last stages of my mom's life and her battle with Ovarian cancer.
    And yet, I think we must keep sharing about this disease so I am trying to write down some words for you.
    I am sorry for the loss of your friend. Where is the hope? Where is the justice? None of it makes a bit of sense to me.
    Kudos to you to have the courage to write and to share with total strangers about your journey.


  3. Birdie - I already read your blog...I am so sorry about your Mum. Never hesitate! Thanks for the comment.

    The hope is that we will one day have a cure - in the meantime it is that some of us will survive to educate other women...and save them from a late diagnosis.

    it isn't courage that makes me share - it is fear - fear that someone else may have to go through what I have. I really hope that my blatherings save even ONE woman from that.

    The spirit in me respects the spirit in you
