sad news

I’m sorry to be posting something so morbid during ICLW, but I guess this is time sensitive…

I opened my Google Reader today to a new post by one of my favorite bloggers, Lisa from Clusterfook. Lisa is a mother of 2 and so uplifting and funny, but at the same time real and honest. She’s one of those people that I would love to know and spend time with in real life.

Lisa is dying of ovarian cancer that has spread throughout her body.

I opened her latest post to find that it hasn’t been written by her at all, but by her friend, Karl, who she had asked to post updates on her health once she no longer can. It seems that she is not doing so well, and the doctors think that she will be “lucky” to make it through the weekend. Please stop over to her blog, read her story, and leave some kind words. I’m sure her husband and daughters will appreciate all of the support.

I am so sorry. It is so hard to lose someone who meant something to you.

I deal with people with cancer on a regular basis and it is tough every time.

Here via ICLW.

Gosh, I'm so sorry to hear that. Guess it really puts things in perspective.

I pray for her and her family, I hope they feel this simple support of strangers.
