The Silent1 - update on Ann

Hi ladies, it has been a while from I have posted on the site but know that you are all here for advice and support and I truly do value that. This group has been a blessing to me from my diagnosis.

My lovely friend Ann has been a constant support on here to many and thought I would give you an update as I am sure she has been missed.

Ann went to New York in August and from she returned home has been in hospital with complications. She had a stroke and sadly has been unable to have any more chemo. She did make a recovery from the stroke and started to use her arm again but unfortunately hasn't been able to get back to her own home.

She has been in a local hospice for a few weeks now and has been getting so much better personal and loving care that has really helped her and her family.

Would you all keep Ann and her family in your thoughts and prayers please.

Love to you all.

  • Thankyou Julie for the update - I was thinking over the last few weeks that she hadn't posted anything and wondered if all was well.

    As we would all agree this disease and complications are cruel in the extreme - my truest wish for Christmas is that each and everyone of us could be healed. How wonderful!

    Sending love to all

  • Oh Julie, so terribly sad to read your post & update. Ann was one of the first people who replied to me when I first joined the site nearly 3 years ago and she was so encouraging and inspiring. Glad she made her trip to New York, and that she is being cared for so well. It sounds as if she is peaceful. My thoughts are with her family and you her close friend I know you have helped each other so much along the way.

    Love, Madeline. Xxx
