My Anne passed away on October 2nd.
She was diagnoised with Leukemia on Jan 30.,
went through Chemo
until Mar 9, then was told she had little chance of surviving a
consolidation round of Chemo. We got a second
at MD Anderson and the prognoses was 6 months to a year. She made
months but then the Leukemia took all her breath away. Please
amount to the Leukemia & Lymphomia Society, 8111 LBJ Freeway,Suite 425 Dallas,
Anne was full of
life to the very end, always do for others consuling a multitude of
others in need. She so enjoyed the outdoors from our caving,
backpacking, skiing, sailing and traveling to the ends of the earth.
