Good evening. I am Ian, Frenchdeb's husband. She asked me to post that she has had something of a reverse. On holiday in the UK she suffered loss of appetite and abdominal bloating, and on return to France was admitted to hospital. Scans have revealed that her cancer has returned - now on her liver. At this stage we know no more than that. We hope that she may be able to get online herself in the near future. She does regard the cameraderie here as extremely therapeutic.

Hello Ian,

Sorry to read of Deb's situation. Send her love and support, and tell her to try not to panic as things will seem better when the necessary treatment has been decided, and something is being done.

Much love to you both.



Thank you Ian for letting us know...I am sorry that she has had a recurrence... But I am glad she has arrived home safe...she is now in the best place for something to be done...please give her my love and best wishes and tell her I am thinking and praying for you both. I hope that this will only be a little x G x :-) (the smiley is to cheer her up)


So sorry to hear this. Best wishes to you both.



Dear Ian, thanks so much for letting us know. I really felt for Deb when she posted up that she felt unwell over here on holiday. Please give her my love. I'll be thinking of her and hoping you have better news soon.

I'd thought you lived in Lake Overcup in Arkansas because that seems to be her profile location so she must've been confused by my previous reply. I think you're in good hands in France. One of the international centres of excellence for Ovarian Cancer is in Toulouse.

Sending best wishes and a hug. Please let us know how youngest on. Love Annie

It is my sad task to tell you that Deb succumbed on 5th September, less than 8 whole days after being admitted - the medics didn't have a chance. The cancer had come back not only on her liver, but also stomach and lungs. Thus she went very quickly. The care offered by Centre Hospitalier, Le Mans was first rate, and I was invited to spend the night with her, a bed being made up, the night before she died. She was 57 and we were together 39 years.

I assume no-one is on this site for the fun of it, and I wish you all well with recovery and a long life to come.
