Blue Days

It's a sad day in the world of my on-line Ewings Sarcoma support group. In the last month, we've lost 4 young adults to the beast. Others are in end stage, or opting to end treatment because it can only make them sick but not cure them. Of those that are in remission, several struggle with the kind of heart problems that are usually associated with old people (caused by chemo), long-term radiation damage and/or face on-going orthopedic surgeries to replace prosthetics. Blech. The disease sucks, the treatments suck, the after-effects of the treatments suck. Please pray to the god of your choice for a breakthrough, to hear "Eureka" come from the labs, for hope.
