My mother & brother in law both coping with cancer


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Well right now I have my mother going through her third bout with cancer in 15 years and this time it's a tumor on her skull the size of a quarter, and at 77 years old she has decided to just get local radiation and a hematology drip once a month and not remove it. Because she says she has been cut on enough and can't take anymore, and so far she is doing quite well even after suffering a stroke about 18 months ago, and she is a fighter and never ever complains about going through any of this which I really admire about her.

Then I have a brother in law who is 58 years old and who was told two years ago that they discovered a cancerous growth 8 inches long wrapped around his.............aorta, and they cannot cut through it or remove it because there's a high risk of damaging his heart permanently and terminally. And it has not been responding to any of the treatments which are meant to reduce and shrink this mass, so all he is doing is putting it in God's hands and going on with his life and takes his treatments(to keep it from spreading)about twice a month. And again the guy never complains and wants no sympathy or pity, which I of course admire a great deal as well.

Dear Members,

We are excited to mention that we are moving to a more new and improved message boards on MONDAY MORNING AUGUST 9th! The boards will be done for a few hours while we are making the conversation. Remember we posted information about this move a month ago. For some of you this might seem a bit sudden,  but when we were reviewing the site we determined the current message board you are using is out of date and the company that designed it is no longer in existence. The good news is this new message board will have new features that have been requested in the past like more fields we can add to your profiles and a chat room up to 20 people at one time. If we find the chat room is bursting at the seams we will add additional room for extra people. All your old posts, private messages and such will be migrated to the new message board. You might have to put up your profile picture again but not sure. The new company will be doing the migration for us. Here is a short list of some of the new features on the board:

- Custom Profile Fields

- Users can customize their profile pages by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options.

- Facebook and Twitter Integration

- users can respond to multiple posts at once with "mini-quote"

- Pinned discussion threads - like welcome to our board etc.

- Announcements made across some boards or the entire message board

- Search: Users can easily find all content generated by a particular member, by clicking the 'Find Content' button that appears on the main profile page, or in the Mini Profile Popup which can be accessed throughout the board. The results page allows content to be filtered by application, as well whether the member created it or merely participated in it.

- Privacy: allows users to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Users also have the option to disable personal conversations and user-to-user emails, as well as ignore other users if necessary.

The next exciting piece of news about the new message board is it will have a new domain name of www.grieving.com for search engine optimization purposes. It will still be apart of Beyond Indigo and can be found through www.beyondindigo.com. We will be redirecting your current URL's to this new domain name but we might miss a few. If that is the case simply go back to www.grieving.com or www.beyondindigo.com to find your message board thread. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible.

The bottom line is the new board will give us room to grow our community and more options to interact better with each other.

If you have any questions please direct them to feedback@beyondindigo.com.
