I wish there were better words of condolence than "I'm sorry" for those words imply guilt where there is no responsibility. I do, however, feel your pain and were there any words at all that could ease that pain, I would use them. I lost my sister to an autoimmune disease few have heard of. We battled being abandoned by our parents to being sent to a foster home that beat and starved us as well as my surviving childhood leukemia together. She was more than my sister; she was my mother, my sanctuary, my best friend and my guardian angel. A large part of me died when she died. Although I have a very loving husband and two wonderful children I will never be whole without her. She came to me in my dreams the night she died and several times again in the months that followed. I love it when I see her in my dreams and I hate waking up from them because she means so much to me. If there is anything I am learning in the experience it is that our time hear holds meaning if we have an impact on someone's life. We can turn that pain and heartache into love ans send it outward into the world as something good. Take that energy being lost in tears and turn it outward into the world where it is needed. Help someone who needs the love as much as you need the release from pain. In that way you can honor those you have lost and start to fill the void in your heart with something meaningful. Having survived cancer twice in my life, I believe that cancer is a physical manifestation of the sickness in our hearts and souls. We need to heal the wrongs in our "little worlds" and we will be stronger and more whole when we do. May you succeed in finding peace as your life has already been peppered with enough pain and suffering. My heart goes with you!

I am so sorry for your loss....I am happy for your remission.....but, please keep yourself tested thoroughly for breast cancer...those are some high risk factors for you....Wishing you continued good health reports....God Bless.....
