A sad day today.

Saturday, November 20, 2010

A friend passed away today from cancer of the esophagus. She was diagnosed a little over a year ago and had endured chemotherapy, radiation and experimental treatments. But it after a year it got to the point where she could no longer eat. She went to the hospital about a month ago and they inserted a feeding tube, but she wasn't getting any nourishment from it and they finally removed it. She lived for almost two weeks with no food or water.

She was an amazingly strong woman, who did not seem that way before her diagnosis. Because she fought hard, she got to see her son get married this summer and spend many good hours with friends and family.

She will be missed by many in our community.
