I'm choking back tears as I read your journal. You are such a special lady, who encourages others by spreading words of inspiration to others.
Your words love, life, hope and faith will live on forever.


I'm sorry to hear about the turn of events for you. I echo what Seamom said. It's a celebration of life and getting to know you through this board. Take care and =hug


[size=medium]Ronda, in case you are not aware of this... Dr. Thomas Kieber-Emmons (ACRC) has given his life work to the cure of breast cancer. His research has been federally funded since 1992. Finally after decades of research he has produced a vaccine shown to stimulate the killing of tumor cells. He and Dr Laura Hutchins, his fellow researcher, will be conducting Phase 1 of a clinical trail to test the safety of a breast cancer immunotherapy he and his team have developed. If all goes as expected during this 4 month trail, they will begin Phase 2, a year long clinical trail to prove to the world what he has been meticulously working on for decades... His is a first-of-its-kind carbohydrate-targeting vaccine shown to stimulate the killing of tumor cells...

Ronda, as a 4A lung cancer survivor, {treated at ACRC with Dr. Hutchens on the oncology team} I can only say that it is God, and God alone who makes the call of "terminal". At the end of the 4 months I was given to live, I was cancer free, and have been for the past 12 years.

My new email address is : please feel free to write anytime....


An old Italian saying from a Belgian: "Have faith and courage - God will provide the strength."
Your faith and courage have taken you this far and God will provide the strength to go on. You WILL be in San Francisco in August.


I really don't know what to say. The others have said it so well. Please know that I admire you and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
