    In Augest of 2001 she was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer..she had the neccessary surgery, 6 months of Chemotherapy, and the cancer went into remission..Her Mother and I thought everything was fine..in June of 2003 we took off to the Smokies for a two week stay..While we were there the daughter called and told us she had started Chemotherapy again..She knew was was going to, but didn't tell us before we left...not wanting us to worry..From then, June 2003, till now she has had Chemo..different types, different schedules..trying to find one that would help...I took her in for her treatment today, and as we came back, she asked me to take her shooting....We used to go quite often, but she hasn't been since the diagnosis....She is now on the Chemotherapy along with an experimental drug called "Avastin", which is approve for Colon cancer and being evaluated for other types...So far, it is working..THANK GOD...I thought we were going to loose her....Today made her Th treatment with the Avastin, and she is sooooo much improved....I told her to let me know when she felt up to it,,and we would head for the range......she loves shooting and firearms....Please..pray for her......

    Thanks for listening.....

    I'm losing a close cousin to cancer right now. There isn't anything they can
    do any longer.

    Prayers sent :)

    I will say a prayer for her. As one with cancer myself I pray she has the spirit and will to fight it. Sounds like she does.

    Enjoy each day for the beauty that God has given us.

    Field,
    Would it be OK if I mentioned this situation to my midweek Bible study?
    More prayer cover never hurts.

    May God give your daughter and your family courage, and strength to battle this. May his hand be on all of you, and on the doctors who are his instruments to do his will.

    God be with you. Keep us posted.

    Be strong

    My sister is making a steady recovery from lung cancer. Months of chemo, radiation, and a recent surgery.

    It's a terrible helpless feeling sometimes, watching from the sidelines. All you can do is wait, and hope, and pray.

    I'm positive everything will turn out fine. I hope her recovery is .220 Swift.

    My mom went thru all of the operation, chemo, and radiation for her uteran cancer and she turned out fine. For as long as I can remember my mom, she had always permed her hair. The treatments stopped that of course. Since my mom's hairgrew back in, it's better than any perm she'd ever done (so she and my sisters say). What's up with that? Al those years I spent enduring that toxic perm smell in the house, argh.

    Field - please let me add to the list of well-wishers. The results from this new treatment sound wonderfully encouraging and I send most positive thoughts to you all.

    Great to know about the range time too - that has to be categorized as part of ''the therapy''. :)
