      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. My sister is in the last stage of her life. She has been battling stage 4 breast cancer for almost a year, two weeks they did scans and the tumors are back in her brain. The Dr. said there is nothing more they can do and referred her to hospice. She is only 34 years old and has two very young children (6&3). As you can imagine this news has devastated our family, my dad, brother and myself. We just lost our mother to cancer 4.5 years ago, so it has opened up old wounds and we all have had some very difficult days lately. My main concern at this time is her family, her husband and two kids. I am looking for advise to help the kids cope, any help would be great. My sister is making the kids scrapbooks of her so the kids have something to remember her by. What makes this situation a little harder is she and her family live about 4 hours away form the rest of the family. So once my sister passes my brother in law will not have much help.
