Love to all

I'm nearing 5 years out and doing well.  I just want to send love to everyone here. Though I'm sorry any of us ever had reason to come here, I give thanks and love to all of you who helped me through my bout with the big C. I hope I helped someone along the way as well.  And I wish peace to those who were here once but have left us.  They were strong and fought well and were loved.

And to those of you in the fight right now...NEVER, EVER, STOP BEING POSITIVE.  All the chemo and radiation out there is not as powerful as your smile and absolute belief you will get through this.

So...2020 was nuts, but a year to be thankful for anyone able to listen to birds and maybe spend some time in the sunshine.

My love to you all.

I'm thankful to be here for the start of another year, thinking of all those wonderful souls who didn't make it. The Universe is an immense, powerful, marvel to behold. I'm certain their atoms and their dust are once again free to continue the journey outward. I will miss them, but I'll live live with their lessons and I'll envy them until the day comes when it's my turn.

I know what you mean. I love living and I love my life and would like to be here for years to come but I'm not afraid of death. I believe in Heaven but not in hell; I think at times, that this can be hell, if we allow it to be. I miss the people here who have passed and for those whose caregivers were the member, I knew the survivor vicariously. Take care Bill.

I try to keep their memories alive in my heart.
This can be a hard time of year. However, we have turned the corner on the amount of daylight and in about another month we'll be turning our attention to new life outdoors.

Meanwhile be good to yourself and those around you.
All the best

Hi Bill; Happy Birthday during this very trying year of 2020; may your year ahead be a good one. MGBY,
John! How are you? Thanks so much for thinking of me on my 29th birthday!

Actually, this is one of the big ones...70. Though I'm not dealing well with the concept of being 70, I'm very happy to be alive to be unhappy at turning 70! We've come far, John, here on BFAC. Happy Fall to you and yours! Bill
Bill, Happy 70th in 2020. That is a milestone, especially for us cancer survivors and fighters in this crazy year. Hoping to be employed next week- that would a good thing between the Covid-19 cuts and age discrimination, just getting a job at half the pay takes over 3 months of daily work, but it appears I might have broken thru. Happy Autumn to you on your birthday week as well.

It comes on without warning.

It is REALLY scary. Hope is as important as breath.

If meds for chemo side effects are bothering you like perhaps anti-nausea meds causing constipation, talk to your doctor about alternatives or possibly trying to go without that Med and see how you make out.

Love the people who are working to help you. Let them know you love them.
