    Hello everyone,

    I'm sure you all remember Janet from the UK who recently underwent WBR to treat a single brain met. I believe she also had it in her stomach. Well, I received a personal email from her friend Cynthia, saying that Janet had been admitted in a hospice facility. Tonight I received this second email from Cynthia:

    Hello everyone,

    I'm sure you all remember Janet from the UK who recently underwent WBR to treat a single brain met. I believe she also had it in her stomach.

    Hello Sharyn
    It is with sadness that I have to tell you that Janet died today peacefully in the hospice with her family beside her.
    She was a very brave lady who loved life and fought the cancer to the end, sadly the last treatment did not have the desired outcome for her.
    I hope you continue to make good progress and so glad it worked for you.
    I think Janet felt if she tried some thing rather than letting things happen then she was in control.
    Best wishes
    Cynthia  

    I just thought you would all want to know.

    Hugs

    Sharyn, Stage IV

      Thanks for the note.  So sad to lose another valiant warrior. She is at peace now and safe from the monster.  It's been a very difficult few weeks. Val

      Thank you for posting this information.  So sad to hear this about Janet.  We have lost far too many good people this  year.

      I, too, recieved an e-mail from Janet's friend. Janet and I "met" on mpip and had been e-mail pen pal's for the last 4 years- since we both progressed to stage IV. She was a lovely person. I so enjoyed our correspondences that got our minds off melanoma. I had hoped to meet her someday, but never made that trip overseas. Janet was very brave and compassionate and I will miss her. My heart goes out to her family.
