Sue Nelson of XRX has been accepted into an experimental treatment, Stage 1 trials (the kind you don’t ever want to have to be in but are ecstatic to get into when all else has failed–which is where she is) for her Stage 4 ovarian cancer. She will have to fly in for treatment repeatedly, her insurance may deny all, and her expenses will be huge. XRX is raffling off not the book but their actual Great American Afghan to try to help her meet what this is going to take for her. Sue helped piece that afghan.

Benjamin Levisay’s post about it is here.  Tickets are $10 a shot. I’m joining the many trying to help and to get the word out.


Edited to add: the USGS is showing three (now seven) strong earthquakes in the last hour in Japan, including an unfathomable 8.9 (now reappraised as a 9) and a tsunami that followed, with more warned of. Forty-one quakes in two days and that number changing fast. My prayers go to everybody there, too. My stars.

I think your next post needs to feature Parker. We all need a reminder of hope and joy.

Prayers and peace to all.

I join you in prayer for those many, many people who’s lives will be changed forever by this huge earthquake — we lived in the Bay Area in 1989 — actually very close to the Loma Prieta epicenter, and that was life changing — what an enormous tragedy

(and now be alert for an earthquake on east side of that tectonic plate — when it moves on one side, it usually moves on the other!)

I just heard this morning about the earthquake in Japan, and the resulting tsunami warning. An 8.56 is HUGE!

Yeah! Where are the pictures of Parker?

Thanks for posting this information about Sue Nelson. I have a friend who is hoping for a stage 1 trial that will help with lung cancer. I’m happy to contribute to expenses for someone who has found such a trial. I so hope it goes as well as it possibly can.
