Betty (AnglyLuvr) was taken from us on August 3, 2002.

We have lost a very good friend to the Cancer Support chat room. He was a friend of mine and a friend to all. He was always there for everyone. His heart was as big as Texas and he was a Desert Storm Veteran. His tour in that war left him with Leukemia. He fought a long hard battle and his last stand was his bone marrow transplant. It was not successful and the fact that he stuck around a year after just shows how much of a fighter he was...and how much he loved those around him. He attended many hug fests, was always there for people in pain, and was loved and respected by all. I know I will miss him. Please say a prayer for all of those who are suffering from his passing. 

Goodbye, Rick. I love you, my good friend.

James Michael McCready was taken from us on September 17th, 2002. 

We had to say goodbye to Sherry in November of 2002. She left behind two beautiful children and a man who loved her dearly. 

Betsy was taken from us in December of 2002. Betsy was very active in Cancer Support and was the one most responsible for the get-togethers we now call Hug Fests. She was a fighter, a supporter, and loved by all. She is sorely missed by all.

Angel Hendrickson ( was diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyo-sarcoma in 1973. She underwent chemo at the age of 16. "I wanted to die. I ran away from the hospital in Indiana and went to California until I had to return home from being so ill. If I had stayed in my hometown in Indiana to be treated they were going to remove all my insides that were not vital to survival. My parents took me to the Mayo Clinic where they saved my life and also have allowed me to have children ( 5 kids-3 grands). I had cervical cancer in 1986...and survived that also. The docs at Mayo did not think I would survive either but I proved everyone wrong. I would like to communicate with other long term survivors of Rhabdomyosarcoma."

Bob (Bobster2u) was diagnosed with Hodgkins' Lymphoma.1985
He goes back to MD Anderson every two years.  "As of 1996, they pronounced me 'Cancer Free', which I'm assuming means - remission - and
I'm free to go about my normal life.  Cancer changed my life, but I would have to say it was for the better.  I'm more interested in people and experiences now, and less concerned with the 'materialistic' world so many people focus on."
