    Congrats, Mona! I myself have now been goin' down the road feeling Grateful for just under 5 years since my last chemo. Way to be a warrior! Sending out lots of positive energy to you and all others fighting the good fight!I firmly believe that listening to my tapes and CD's of the Dead was a major factor in my healing. Some rise, some fall, some climb...

    Black Muddy River
    Hello fellow Deadheads, I’m so very happy to hear stories like Mona’s and other’s. I’m happy to hear and embrace successful stories of kicking cancer’s ass!!! My 35 yr old daughter has been battling colon cancer for 3 years. She had a successful treatment 2 years ago but we found out 2 months ago the cancer returned and the long term prognosis is not good. Last week we found out my sister, age 52, has an aggressive form of breast cancer, a recurrence from 10 years ago, that spread throughout the body. Prognosis is not good either. Both daughter and sister have been told told we’re not talking years, but months. Posting here because I feel a kinship with my fellow Deadheads and I know you all have someone in your family or know someone who is battling cancer. Cancer knows no age, no race, no boundaries. I guess what I’m saying is I’m posting here cause I can’t imagine walking alone by the ‘Black Muddy River’, though we all will at some point. And lastly, I’d like to say ‘FUCK CANCER!!!!’

Started this at the request of one of our folks who's dealing with cancer-fighting challenges, as a place where people who are dealing with this themselves or have loved ones struggling with it, can hang out, tell tales, and share support. Are you kind?

Was wonder about Fire on the MTN before I was diagnosed. Now it makes perfect sense. Need to drink lots of water after chemo cause there is a dragon with matches that's lose ion the town. Take a whole lot of WATER to cool it down.I play this everyday to remind me to drink lots of water. (~);-)

I am a cancer patient. Esophogetoctomy and just had an esophagectomy on the 11th of May. Here's to hoping I feel well enough to make it to Shoreline next weekend. 50-50 on that right now.

In Oregon a legal state that most dispensaries has gone recreational it is harc to get med. Spendy or hard now to find a grower ect or just info so I am hoping this is a place to share what has worked for you or what you need for your particular disease. ~Sometimes you get shown the light in the strangest places if you look at it right!~

Had such a good time at shoreline I had to scam a wheel chair from the airport tarmac to the taxi's. Came home to a pre leaving looking for keys mess that already worn down sent me back to the hospital for a bit and a new round of chemo that's really trying to kick my brain and ass. Now I have family to help with my biz and heavy lifting. Even Cancer meals on wheels to help for 2 daze after chemo. Words can't say how grateful I am. Forest cleaning out my herb garden makes up for any b-day or moms day he has ever missed.

I got just one more chemo! I am rocking this the best I can. It's a good thing they call me trouble and I keep them laughing. My heart, organs, blood work, and collapse of my tumor and nod is Very Very Very good! Doc told me to keep doing what I am doing. Next week I find out about my new bobbies. ( @ )( @ ) :D

Trust in a higher power, doing what the Doc told me to do and a positive attitude got me thru it 15 years ago. Listening to the Dead and others helped to fill my head with good stuff too. Everyday is a great day!!!

1. Get a cheap satin night cap from the pharmacy. 2. Your hair will prob will come out in a day and this prevents hair from getting all over. 3. Eat like you are training for a Marathon. You won't be loosing weight from throwing up nor should you want to. 3. Listen to Grateful Dead. Fire on the mountain was my chemo song to play and drink water to flush the poisons. 4. As a poem my reg. care giver Dr. Dan Sisco wrote and gave to me says; "This just your body going through things and even thought you have to deal it is not you and you can separate yourself. 5. Let the sm shit go. 6. Big shit will seem sm. 7. Be open and talk to ppl. 8. Get your kind, positive tribe around you (Deadheads). 9. Thank everyone again. 10. Grateful and humble for your love and support it has helped me sooo much when I would think I didn't have it in me.Words can't say how much I love y'all. ~Sometimes you get shown the light in the strangest places if you look at it right~

under the stars, and all the cats in the stars above, are banding together to send love and encouragement and prayers and hugs from the far corners of the universe. This comes straight from Gracie, the bestest Maine Coon cat ever. Samantha, the ball of Maltese fur and giggles on the couch says me too... You can do this, Mona. https://www.gdao.org/items/show/368129

Another amazing piece of the community we are a part of. Keep you in my prayers. The entire Grateful Community never seems to surprise me . Why? Because we care about strangers we have never met. All my best to all that need prayer.

She's a lonely woman and in need of prayers right now. Last year she had one of her ovaries removed and this year she is diagnosed with cancer. Her fiance' has left her after knowing that she's sick. All I am asking you is a prayer that she will be able to make it. She's really depressed right now, and I honestly don't know how to comfort her. Thanks guys.
