The end of a long journey

Hi All,
I am writing on behalf of my mom. It is with great sadness, I write to let everyone know my mom's journey came to an end on May 30th. She ended up in hospital with fluid on her lungs and despite all efforts, there was nothing more they could do for her. It had been a long hard battle. 4 years with cancer, and she fought all the way to the end.

Our family is honored that as I write this, she has had over 508,700 page views. She touched the lives of everyone on here.

We thank you for your words of encouragement, I know she had many devoted followers. People who may have also been experiencing their own battles, or families devastated by cancer. We plan to keep her blog open as a means of encouragement to those who need it, and as a reminder that despite your odds- keep fighting. I know her favorite thing was telling the Dr who gave her 2-8 months that she wasn't going anywhere. She didn't, not for 4 years and those were some of the best times we got with her.

In loving memory of Cathy.. and she would have wanted me to tell everyone of you..just keep swimming!
