  1. An old, cathartic word from my youth: shitfuck.

    That said, scars don’t kill. And plastic surgeons can do wonders with scars for later on – during those 70 extra years the doctor wants Ana to have.

    Weigh post-op pain vs the scarring when comparing the 2 surgeries. If the removal of the tumors is equal in both, let the surgeons tell you which procedure has the quicker recovery. Double thoracotomy cuts a lot of muscles…

    Oh Jackie, dear and loving mother, I’m screaming for you.

  2. I got nothing.
    “And isn’t that the ultimate Fuck You from cancer? The ruthless bastard.” < This sums it up best. I'm sitting alongside this boxing-ring of of your and Ana's life. TKO. But I'm still betting on Ana.

  3. I don’t have words that can help you but know that you are in my and my family’s thoughts. Take care of yourselves and enjoy the small reprieve before the next wave. I hope that you are all able to have a wonderful trip. regards, Mary-Ann

  4. Well, fuck. There really are no words. But this whole community loves and supports you guys. And Ron – you are about as tone deaf as they come.

  5. We are here, we are here, we are here! In the middle of the night, when you are hungry, when you are afraid, when you are thirsty, and when you conquer this, know we are here.

    All my love and prayers

  6. If I could wrap my arms around you both and give you comfort right now, I would. If I could make this all go away I would. I am so sorry this is happening. How can I help you? You deserve shelter from this storm.

  7. I’m sorry to hear this. Me and my family are here for you guys if you ever need anything. I am here for Ana if she ever needs a break, if she wants to vent, or if she just wants to hang out. I’m sorry this has to happen again. 🙁 At least she can finish school. She is in my family’s prayers.

  8. I am so sorry. Your family has been through too much. I am a friend of your Mom’s and I know that you are all doing the very best you can.

  9. Sitting here trying to think of comforting words is pointless. Nothing comes to mind except; Why? What did this beautiful girl and her family do to be so tormented by fate? It is said that things will always balance in the long run. That’s the best I can come up with right now.

  10. I sit here with tears in my eyes, having no idea what I can possibly say. I cannot imagine facing this. But, as you look at what lies ahead, don’t lose sight of what you have already been through, as that is a testament to your true strength and resolve.

  11. I truly can’t imagine the pain and suffering all of you are going through. I know it is not much butplease know all of your cousins in Colorado are praying for Ana and all of you!! God Speed. ….with much love and respect to you all!!!
