Hey there 2 of my favorite posters Raven and Cody. Just stopping by to say HEY there. Being a lung cancer survivor for 5 years and my husband still battling prostate cancer I can empathize with her philosophy. It changes your life and the way you interact with family and friends. Thanks for sharing ........

SWEET SERA! Don't be a stranger. You are my hero for the way you and your husband have gotten through the last five years with such grace and courage. It is SO nice to see you here!

Not many people handle their own (and rather sudden) death sentence with such matter of fact common sense and courage. It is so nice to see someone who, rather than make us sad, gave us some practical advice and a great example to follow.
