How do you stay strong when your best friend, mentor, hero is going through cancer? She is so weak.


My friend three days before new years day was told she has cancer. She had been in hospital for a month then sent to a nursing home for a month because it was close to Baltimore University Hospital so she could get her radiation treatments. Marylou made it threw the radiation but now is going threw Kemo treatments and yes I probably spelled it wrong. I have been here with her in Maryland helping her for 2 weeks now . I am watching her struggle as I am the one giving her kemo pills that are zapping her away from me. She let go with no vidal signs at the Doctors office today. She is ok now.

    I agree with you lone77star it is poison. It is taking it's toll on her but the treatments are almost over. But you are also right as we almost lost her twice and she has come back to us. Thank you for your wisdom on the child of God. I believe that.
