Dave's Words Of Wisdom Supporting The Fight Against Cancer

Having lost my mother to lung cancer I felt compelled to
create a tribute that could be shared and used to support
those fighting cancer, those who have survived cancer
and in remembrance of those who have been lost to us
to this terrible disease.

I encourage all of you to comment on this, share this and show
everyone that we are united in our support.

Thank you to everyone who supports this. Your support means a lot.

This is lovely Dave. I lost a few family members to cancer, my friend fought cancer and won! I am a female and was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2011 at age 43. I was not what the doctors call a typical diagnoses due to my gender,age and symptoms. It is very important for screening. I will be cancer free for 2 years this February! I lost my father to cancer(lung and brain) in December 2012. We didn't know anything was wrong until about a week before he passed. Again: screening is a must if we want to win this fight against cancer.

I lost my Mami and she was my best friend to lung Cancer Aug. 2012. It's been the hardest thing to come to terms with that she is gone, she's always on my mind. She was a strong and faithful woman of God to the very end. She was the center of our family that kept us together and her love was so unconditional. I so miss her and our times together and mostly her strong embracing hugs.

I lost my dad in May 2012 to lung cancer he was everything to me and I miss him more than words can say, I also lost my grandma to cancer in Oct 2012 and a close family friend to lung cancer in Nov 2012. I say cancer sucks but that doesnt even begin to describe it. Saying a little prayer to all if you who know the pain it feels to be the one left behind from cancers selfish wrath.

This is really sad but helps give strength. I lost 3 of my grandparents two only in their sixties to cancer, more recently my dear mamma who was like a second.mum to me only 6 months ago. I still dream she's alive and about her which on waking is heartbreaking to hit reality. I have close friends in similar circumstances , including former colleague dying leaving two young children due to cancer. I know it helps to talk, and to others who can relate to your experience. I hope more can be done to improve screening and treatments. Grief is like a pain though that never goes away.

Cancer - just the word strikes fear into one's heart. In 1973, my mother had cancer of the uterus, had treatment, and survived. She had a mastectomy in 1996, another 'scare' in 2000. In December she celebrated her 84th birthday. NOTHING the matter with her mental processes, she's just getting frail. One aunt had cancer, went into remission and then it took her. I've had a mastectomy in 2007, am currently in remission. I have numerous friends who are also in remission, a couple more who are fighting. Cancer CAN be fought and one can go into remission and stay there. We just have to decide not to give in without a fight. Love to you all.

It is very hard to lose someone under 'normal' circumstances. Hard to watch someone you love fighting a battle that could be lost in the future. Hard to cope with the loss....... To lose three of your most precious people in such a short space of time - can't be described by someone who hasn't had the experience. Prayers. God Bless

Lost my dear wife of 32 wonderful years to lung cancer in June of 2012. From the time she was diagnosed until the time she passed was only 5 weeks. I'm so thankful that she didn't have to suffer any longer than that, she suffered enough. Not a day has gone by since that horrible month that I don't think of her and the wonderful years we shared. She was truly one of a kind.

My heart goes out to all fighting. I saw too many die from Cancer. In 2009 my husband lost his job & insurance. I got Triple Negative Breast Cancer in 2010. It left me feeling like I was torutered and left to Die! My husband begged me to live! We got to see my own mother Die from Breast Cancer. It was my second time in my life seeing her. Since the RN from my birth hospital kept me! I found her Dead when I was 13. I never had love or parents in my life! Finding my own mother wasn't that Sweet Dream. She was Dying from Breast Cancer in a hospital. However she did know who I was! I was 19 & Pregnant. I couldn't share she'd be a grandmother. She didn't say if I had a dad or family. I never saw her again. She was just 46. When I was near her age. My husband saw her Dying look on my Face. But I'm still here! We're living on Love & a Prayer with Zero income! Fight hard! Anyone- if you can help someone fighting... We'll never forget it! Not even with brutal unbearable pain & chemo Brain. We have to have a Cure! We deserve Quality of Life After Cancer without recurrence!! Wishing everyone a Better life, healing, wellness, comfort & good care!! ~Linda Landowski Custer, WI.

When I hear the word 'cancer', I immediately think of all the loved ones I have lost to this HORIBLE disease! My husband of 23 yrs. passed 6 months after he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him and miss him. My dad died of pancreatic/liver cancer, my grandfather of colon cancer, mother-in-law of liver cancer, and my 2 closest friends of breast cancer. My mother is a 2 time colon cancer surviver and is age 90 now. ♥ It's a frightening disease and my heart goes out to all those lost and who have lost! Pray for a cure!!!!

My husband was diagnosed with CML Chronic Myeologenous Leukemia last January 2011. The word Leukemia is like a death sentence to me. He''s taking Gleevec, his lifetime medication, and this cost a lot. With the help or some friends and relatives, and yearly we're conducting a FUN RUN to raise funds for his medication etc. Life sure takes some twist and turns and TROY having CML is the biggest to me. It has made a biggest impact on my life, my growth, learning and understanding. Its affected my life in ways that i never imagined, and hopefully soon i will be able to really start giving back somehow, to help others the way they helped me through this dealing with cancer in my husband. I'm hoping and praying that Troy will respond well to GLEEVEC so well. It has been a heck of a ride, even when everything going relatively smoothly. There were many times that I myself not feeling so well, tired that i just did not know how to go on, how to just be. . .but i need to be strong for my husbands and for my kids, but there was always someone not even met, or someone walking a similar road, who understood and was there for me. Almost 2 yrs now,we''re hoping and praying he'll be free of leukemia.

My wife and I lost 31 people in an eighteen month period, 3 in one day alone. All were from cancers of various types and heart attacks. I know first hand how hard this can be, and offer this opinion to help you cope.
Only mourn a short while, then reflect back and celebrate each and every memory and joyful moment you can. Feel their presence in your life, then and now. The physical part of their existence may now be unseen, but the emotional and spiritual gifts they gave you will live on forever. Yes, its painful to reflect on these things, but only if you do so feeling sorry for ourselves. Once we learn to be truly thankful of the time and experience we did get to share, appreciate just how much they enriched our lives, then and only then will the days all get better.
Although losing loved ones so fast is difficult, it at times is a blessing in disquise. Watching someone wither away slowly, no quality of life etc., forms memories that often overpower the good positive memories. Given the choice, I'm sure we would all rather be remembered for how we lived, not how we died.

My roommates mother is fighting breast cancer & my father is fighting prostate cancer. Also a couple years ago my mother lost a close friend to breast cancer & I lost a friend to leukemia. Cancer sucks big time!!! I'm praying everyday for all those fighting cancer. I pray for the family & friends who have lost a loved one. I try to do my part and participate in a Relay for Life event every summer. I like doing what I can to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.

My oldest niece passed away in October 2012 of breast Cancer at the age of 43. Too Young. My question, is if there is so much money donated to help find a cure, yet every day, there is another man or woman, told they have breast cancer, what is happening to all that money? Are We finding that cure but the powers that be at the drug companies, are scared to let it be known, knowing that it could cost jobs/incomes at the companies? Just a thought.
God Bless Everyone.

Thank you for supporting this cause I have fought breast cancer, my dad and grandpa prostate cancer, my aunt kidney cancer and my 22 year old niece lost her battle with an incurable brain cancer two years ago. Cancer really sucks and I hope they find cures for all types and soon. I'm so afraid of my breast cancer coming back and losing that battle as did a friend of mine did in 2010.

It will be a year March 31 since I lost my Mom to lung cancer. Three weeks before she died, we still thought she had a shot at making it. My sister and I took care of her for 7 months and it has devastated us losing her. We look at this year as a milestone, we survived and it wasn't easy! Each day without mom has been hard, but now we are finding it easier to laugh and bring up the good memories instead of all the sad ones.

This is lovely. I lost my only child, my son Rob, to Testicular Cancer on February 9, 2012. He was 34 years old and left behind a daughter, Rylee, who is 3 years old now. It's difficult for me to lose my son, it's worse for her to lose her daddy. Geri P.

I'm so sorry for both you and your sister's loss of your wonderful Mom. I lost my Mom 4 years ago and still miss her.

Good for you two! I bet this is the way your Mom would want you to remember her- looking back at the good times, the laughs, the funny moments you all shared . You might even want to write a journal of family stories she told you so you can pass them on someday.

I had lung cancer last year - so far things look good! One day at a time.

God bless you both, and be good to yourselves.

As are all of your posts here and on facebook, this is beautiful!! Thank you Dave!!
Just a little more than a month ago, lost my husband to lung cancer...metastasized to his brain. He was given a year, but sadly passed away after a very excruciatingly painful 21/2 months.. My pain is that there is a part of me that is missing, and the place where his arms would be when he would hug me....hurts ...Like those who have lost an arm or a leg yet still feel a horrific phantom pain where that limb used to be....

My only consolation is that God in His infinite wisdom and mercy, ended his pain, which I, no treatment, nor any pain medication, could take away here on earth!!!

My prayers are for all of those, and their loved ones who are fighting this ugly horrible disease.... And a special prayer for those who have lost their battle and all those whom they have left behind... Missing you so much, my best friend in life!!!<3 <3 <3

My name is Andrew Pana of California. In May. of 2012 my wife was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 38. The doctors could give her no hope. She did have chemo and radiation, the doctors thought that could prolong her life for a little while. In September of 2013 she done surgery, that's when they found out that the cancer had spread to her lymp nodes in her left hip area and couldn't get it all with the surgery. Now it looked like 2-4 months is all she would live. It was a very aggressive form of colorectal cancer.

While searching through the internet, my wife and I found so many testimonies on Rick Simpson healing oil, The Rick Simpson hemp oil for "health" is medicine. So i ordered the miracle oil for my wife and she started taking the hemp oil medicine every day. "GOD'S NATURAL MEDICINE".

It was two years before the doctors finally gave me a good report concerning my wife's condition. It was certainly not an overnight miracle. glory be Jesus and the great man Rick Simpson who God himself sent to help us in our lost time (health) Mr. Simpson, God will continue to be blessing you all the day of your life Sir!

He revealed to me that all hope are not gone concerning my wife health So I, must keep my eyes focused on Him and His Medicine and not on the storm of cancer all around us (the doctors reports, test results, the pain, what other people said). He is so faithful to His Promises! There were so many different things that happened during this time and afterwards but this is the story in brief. I give Jesus my Lord all the glory and praise to Rick Simpson the founder of hemp oil for healing my wife's stage 4 cancer.

A special thanks to you Sir, brothers, sisters help me thank this man of truth and courage because he is my hero. You can reach him with this information ( ricksimpsoncannabisoil_phoenixtears@outlook.com or ricksimpsoncannabisoil_phoenix@outlook.com maybe call him at +447031996738 ) you brought my joy back to life not just only that you save my world with your miracle inspiration, you are inspired Sir. My wife is now cancer free because of you( AM GRATEFUL SIR.)
