Our Battle

Bill's former boss will die in the next few hours/days. She's battled a really deadly form of cancer for one year and four months. This lady is a proud woman who gave-up the whole idea of a family years ago. She didn't think there was a path for husband, children, and expert engineer.

The priest came a week ago Friday. According to her own DNR she is not receiving nutrition or hydration while in a semi-coma. This nightmare isn't new to us. We've lost a mother, a neice, a grandfather, two uncles and many cousins to cancer. What can we say now? F--k cancer. I hate it. I hate everything having to do with cancer. I think every man, woman and child in the world should be pissed off every time a human person dies from this sh*t.

I'm so sorry about this. I know your family has been there for her all this time. ((hugs))

There's some real thoughts! It must be frustrating (beyond that word actually)...I have to admit over the years I think about all the money to 'the cure'..I often wonder many things- don't really want to say what I'm leading to...
This is really sad..peace be with her.
