Judy in Carefree

I lost a brother at 48 to cancer and all I can say is that my prayers are with you and wish that God may keep you safe and alive to follow your dreams.


Shauna, you are the most amazing person I have ever met in my life and I am proud to have you as my friend. I miss you at work everyday and every second!! Keep up the fight girlie, I just know you will kick this.

Love you lots!


PS: Cancer Sucks!


Not a day goes by that I don't think about you, Shauna. What an inspiring story from a very inspirational friend. You will achieve your dreams because you have such determination. Don't ever lose the fight, girl. We all love you and wish you God's speed.



You are one of the strongest and determined women I know Shauna! We're all behind you - Sending love, strength, and tons of hugs,


Shauna...you are my hero. Thank you for being my friend. I treasure our friendship more than you can ever know, and cherish our time together.

Love you,

My Grandpa's wife has cancer. Started three years ago as Ovarian Cancer. She's still fighting. I wish you alot of luck and my thoughts are with you and your family.

Stan has been keeping me up on how you are doing. I think of you often and wish you the best. Your right, Cancer does suck. It takes your strength, your laughter and your will to fight any longer, but it can never take your spirit. As long as you have that, you will have what it takes to win. Just keep the spitit of living with you and your dreams will always come true. Keep fighting!



Well, I don't think I have ever read anything so moving and truthful. It truly says it all.

Not a day goes by that I do not carry you around in my heart and head. I miss you everyday and wish so much that I was closer. I can't wait to see you in a few weeks and I am SO grateful for the chance I had to visit in August.

You have to know that every inch of me is willing your strength and recovery from this sucky cancer. You mean the world to me and I am so blessed to have you as my "twin".

Love you, Shanna


Goose bumps, tears and a warm fuzzy heart. That's what this article has brought me.

Shauna, I love you dearly. You are such an inspiration to all...you always have been and will always be. You mean the world to me. I hope you know that. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and pray for your continued STRENGTH! You WILL WIN! XOXOXOXO


Shauna, your story is touching and inspirational.

God bless the fact you not only have a wonderful support group and husband but possess an inner strength which will serve you in your battle back to full recovery.

Best to all of you and your family. We pray for you everyday. Take care.

Shauna my friend, I have known for years that your are an inspired writer. Your journaling on scrapbook pages for HOTP has always impressed me. You impress me. I want to grow up to be just like you. I continue to pray for your miracle every day. I love you and miss seeing you.

I just happen to see you on the 2peas site (or someone that posted you) and wanted to reach out to you, though I've never met you.
My brother has Stage 4 cancer ... today's 10/4/06 and they don't know if he'll be around in 6 months. He's also 40 ... I'm feeling very alone with it all but you've inspired me here.

I, too, am a scrapbooker and as a family member, trying to find ways to reach out to him. He's very PRIVATE with it all but they say it's a FAMILY ILLNESS (though I have no idea what it feels like).

I'm wondering how I can help him? Is there support groups he can join???? He lives in California.

I'm hoping you'll write me back considering your a scrapbooker and I'm relating to you here.

Thanks so much for sharing your story with us.

Don't think for one single minute I have forgotten all about you. And although I am not at TCC (my pride and joy that I had to step away from) I am still around in spirit. You are in my thoughts. And if you weren't I never would have found this post....now would I? Truth be known...I went looking for an update on you and here it was!

You have amazing strength. Hang in there. You have all the love and encouragement you could ever hope for and friends and family. You have a wonderful life. You'll make it through. I know it.

I love you my first little TCC member!
