Lillian D. wants you to know...

Lillian D of WA state joined the BJP last April, fully expecting to meet her commitment to the project. We heard from her a couple of times in the first months... but not since... until a few days ago when she wrote to me and asked me to let you all know why she "dropped out of sight."

This is what she wrote...

I've been battling a surprising medical condition since I last posted in, I believe August 2007...To make a long story short...They found a pancreatic mass in my abdomen. It's in a too dangerous spot to remove it, too much to radiate and chemo didn't work. I'm in Hospice right now and still in shock!!!!!

In response to my reply, she wrote...

I would love to hear (emails) from members of the group-thanks! I feel the doctors think there is still a chance for miracles, and I'm and we're still doing all we can, but pancreatic stuff is tricky and unpredictable... I have a sister and brother-in-law in Portland (Dorothy and Wayne), and they come as often to visit as they can. And I have Jere at home :o) When I can, I will view some of the work, so many talented people in the group! :o) Thanks Thanks for your prayers, love and hugs and letting the group know for me.

So, if you'd like to write to her, the email is... lilliandelacruz{at}hotmail{dot}com. I hope a few of you will do that.... maybe it will help her in some way to know that we care and miss her. Thanks.

My previous comment was made because there was no content to the post. I'm so sorry to learn that one of our members has had so difficult a time. Emails are definitely in order . . .
