In July 2011, several weeks after six hour Whipple procedure surgery successfully removed a tumor onRead More my pancreas, scans prior to preventative chemotherapy showed that the cancer had metastasized to my liver where I had a 1.8cm tumor. I was stage 4. Preventative chemo would still go ahead, but my oncologist predicted a life expectancy of no more than 12 months. Chemo started. Two months later, scans showed the tumor had disappeared. I am now a 1 in 15,000 three year survivor of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. No cancer. No evidence of disease. Last year I was honored to be asked to give a speech at the annual Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Conference at New York Presbyterian Hospital and hope to speak again this November. I now give support to current patients who NEVER give up hope that one day that cure will be found. I am lucky to be here.

What a sweet thing to do, and to Mimmie ...evidently hysteria is something that you are comfortableRead More with. You see red and immediately yell Fire! whether there is a flame or not - There is a wide gaping gulf between being beaten and being slapped at or even slapped IF his hand actually connected with her person. How would you feel if you were alone in front of screaming fans who all wanted nothing more than A PIECE OF YOU and you were within arms reach! They didn't want to hurt you, they wanted to love you to bits, just a pinch here and snatch a piece there and some hair, want an eyeball? there wouldn't be anything left but a greasy spot on the floor With love from Atlanta! Grow up Mimmie, people aren't going to let him get away with it? LOL! All he has to do is smile and say 'aw shucks' and people will melt and btw country fans don't mind smacking some girls around every now and then...there's a LOT of songs about that too!

Surviving 2 months implies the dog was fed and cared for for a period of that time. While notRead More necessarily kidnapped, he was evidently kept by someone who probably intended to keep him but, when they discovered the dog was micro chipped and therefore 'hot merchandise', released him to be refound.

We lost a Granddaughter last year after living only 10 days. She is an angle that continues to blessRead More our lives with her sweet spirit.

What a heartwarming story about so many people coming through for another person, and in such aRead More wonderful and unique manner. That has made my day.

We're NOT alone in the universe! We share this planet with millions of wonderful organisms - thoughRead More we're not very friendly to most of them. If any single, simple organism was found on another planet - at enormous expense! - we would treat that as truly fantastic; and yet we take our fellow Earthly organisms for granted. NASA's budget could save the whales (the largest animals that we know of in the history of the universe) and help protect rainforests and wetlands - the richest organic terrestrial areas in the universe (as far as we know!).

Who cares? We have enough on our plate with the organisms already on earth. So we get somebody'sRead More radio signals that are two thousand years old. So what? How is that going to help us with the problems we have? NASA is really just a public test facility for the military anyway. Whatever they come up with is primarily for military applications.

I also urge all people to go to the dentist and have their canine teeth pulled since apparentlyRead More Henrietta feels there reason to have them. If you are into this good for you, but please I wish people in their own self interest groups would just do their thing and stop preaching their lifestyle to everyone.

citizen, how many times have CT and other states gone after children and their parents for raisingRead More money by selling Lemonade? I would say the state of Connecticut is cold-hearted, if the word cold-heart has to be used.

Grace you have a wonderful heart and adults could learn from you. Keep up the great work!!!
Jason Kessler June 8, 2014 at 08:24 pm
@citizen Sadly there are a number of examples of states going after kids and their lemonade standsRead More be it for lacking a "health permit" or ""vendor permit" or not collecting sales tax. Sad but a true reality. There are many stories - the following contains links to specific situations. http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2011/08/03/the-inexplicable-war-on-lemonade-stands/ What Grace is doing is wonderful - I just hope a story like this does not get the wrong attention.

Great article, event and ideas! The best and most impactful "pay it forward" thingRead More parents can do is to love their children, and TEACH them to serve others, to have soft hearts, be kind and treat others as they would want to be treated (the "Golden Rule").
