Sad News Today

My sister in law told me a few weeks ago that her sister was diagnosed with Leukemia. She was given an 87% survival rate according to what I read on her blog post. She came down suddenly ill today and sadly passed away this morning. It's pretty unexpected and I know my sister in law is taking it very hard of course. I'd like to dedicate this post to her sister. I want to just remember her here, though I didn't know her. It's so hard when cancer takes a life. It's so wrong and sudden. She was just 42. I'd also like to just extend my condolences to my sister in law Rachel right here on my blog and want others to feel free to do the same.

Very sad. I have a couple tears and I didn't know her either. Cancer is such a tragic illness. Thoughts and prayers going out her way.

Oh WOW this is so sad! Do you think Spirit Jump could help by sending her some uplifting supportive cards/gifts? Cancer is HORRIBLE and we need to fight back by supporting not only the fighters and survivors but those left behind and the ones who support those battling! Email me and let me know what you think megse5@netscape.net

That is indeed very sad and she was too young to have lost her life to this disease. My condolences to you, your sister-in-law and the family.

OMG! I am so sorry for your loss and your SIL's loss. How awful for such a young life to be taken (yes, 42 is young). I will keep your families in my prayers and hope that you can make some sort of sense of it and get some peace.

I don't have any words that would ease your family's pain. Losing someone especially a loved one is beyond sadness and hurt. I lost my Dad to cancer almost 2 years ago and it still hurts.

My prayers go to your family and extended family.

That is very sad. I can understand how that would scare you. I have a close friend who just lost her brother in law from cancer as well. He was diagnosed in Feb. and passed away the first week of March. He did not have long at all. It's such a shame and so sad.

My aunt was taken by leukemia as well. Suddenly, after they told us she was in remission. It's a terrible illness.
