How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

Joanne - I am so sorry.
I am a better person for having "known" Ray.
All the best. Loretta

All my love,

Hope you don't mind me bumping this.. There were so many posts from that spammer that some may not have seen it.
Joanne; we're thinking of you

I'm late. I was about to send Ray a message and read another post asking where he was, which lead me here.
My heart breaks. Ray was a ray of sunshine in my Dad's life when everything else was dark. He took the time to contact him on the phone and let Daddy'O know he wasn't alone in this. He reached out when others were afraid to make eye contact. What wonderful, wonderful blessing. He will always be remembered.

Wow, I didn't realize I have been away for so long. I'm so sorry to see that The Professor has gone ahead. I always looked forward to reading his posts, always filled with good info that helped me process and get through this so far. I hope you have been healing well and continue to feel his love for you in your heart.
Peace and comfort upon you,
Melissa / Red

The professor is still alive in my heart. We had great talks before he passed, and his wish was only that I find someone and move on.
Raymond was my first and only boyfriend. And I loved him deeply. BUT I have news.
I have found someone special, and I am moving on. I just wanted to tell all of you that, because there is life after loss. We can heal, we can be the strong person that they want us to be.
I do peek in every once in a while, but it still hurts to remember the pain that GBM caused. I am not running away as much as I just want to remember him before the monster was added to our lives.
I hope that everyone has a good holiday season, and that you enjoy yourselves. It is best to smile and have fun.
Recently my cousin was diagnosed with uterine cancer, luckily it was Stage One, and there was no spread. BUT the thing that helped her the most was a phrase from an old song, "I am not going to stop the rain by complaining". We can hate GBM and hate what it does, but being sad, upset, and complaining will not make it better. We have to stay positive and hope. Even if it does not work out, we still have smiles to remember.
Have a great holiday and new year. Every day is precious, no matter how easy or hard.

It was so nice to read your post, I have thought about you and a few others that have expereinced a loss this past year. I am very happy that you have found peace and were able to find a life for yourself after experiencing such a heartbreaking experience.
Peace be with you and may you have a great Holiday and a very wonderful 2012.
Love and Hugs to you!

I have thought about you guys often over the past few months. It is difficult this time of year to know we must move forward - if not for them - for ourselves.
Alex never condemned, complained or criticized through his whole ordeal and I have to remember that, when life's petty crap gets in the way!
I am so happy to hear your NEWS - that is the best thing I've heard in a long time. All the Best to You.
I just have to say Merry Christmas to the Professor! Many days he was my inspiration to just keep on keeping on.
Hope your Holidays are all you hoped for and then some!

Joanne, I'm so glad you found someone special! For some that only happens once in a lifetime. For you...TWICE! That makes me think you must be awfully special too. I'm sure the professor is smiling!
Enjoy your holidays and keep grabbing life by the handful...
