Sending you big hugs!! Stay strong. I'm thankful for my two little girls, my family and being able to spend time with them.


I am thankful for today.


I am thankful for my family, my job even though it doesnt look like I'll have on next year due to the educational budget cuts here in Ca, and for our insurance. If it werent for our insurance my DD would be alot sicker than she is; we wouldnt be able to pay for her meds that she needs to stay alive, they're $10,000 every two months.


Thanks for sharing your story! I am thankful for my family and especially the fact that I live 5 minutes from my mom!

I am thankful for my dear husband who helps me every day to deal with my health issues, and my two kids who can always help me find something to smile about. :-)


I am so thankful for a beutiful family. I have 5 wonderful, active, young children, who keep me on my toes. It can be so overwhelming at time, but they are wonderful!

I am thankful for my son, Owen. He was born at 1 lb, 14 oz, 13 weeks early. He spent 121 days in the NICU and had a heart surgery and a surgery to remove half of his left lung. He will turn 1 year old on Saturday, and I can barely believe it was all real. He is such an amazing inspriation of strength to me. He has endured incredible pain, and has beat the odds to thrive today. He is still small and has some obstacles, but he is incredibly happy and healthy. I am grateful every day just to be his mom, and honored to have been so close to such incredible strength and hope. Congrats on your last treatment, Melissa! You are an inspiration.


HI Melissa, God Bless You! I know what you are going through is tough, my mom is fighting colon cancer but she is truly a miracle child. Had she not had surgery when she did she would of died within a month. She is now going on her 3rd year after her surgery. I just wanted to say, don't ever give up and keep yourself surrounded by those you love, and those that love you. I wish you the best and keep fighting!!!
Love, Tonya


Wow! What a true inspiration you are to me. I am so thankful for four beautiful children. I am thankful for a wonderful husband. I am also very thankful to live in a free country where we are able to enjoy so many freedoms. What a blessing! How thankful I am for those who went before and made huge sacrifices, sometimes even their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we do today. May God bless you on your road to recovery.


I am thankful for my faith, family and friends. I am blessed. I am also thankful for art and scrapbooking . . . a wonderful community of caring people.

Melissa . . . you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm thankful for my family for sure! My daughter cracks me up everyday, she is a riot. My husband believes in me even when I don't. I'm thankful that my dad has been cancer-free for over 10 years!

There are many things that I am thankful for. One month from today, my father in law unexpectly passed away. I am very thankful that we all got to spend the last couple of months with him before he passed.


So glad the surgery went well, Melissa! You ARE one strong woman! Praying that the biosy results are good and that make a complete recovery! Hugs!!

What I'm thankful for - just seeing my daughter's smile and hearing her say, "I love you back" to me when I say, "I love you." Totally makes my day!

Thanks again, Melissa!! Thinking of you!!!!


I am always thankful for friends and family. They are the support system that I depend on every day. People touch our lives everyday - I think that is why I love reading people's blogs. They touch my life without even realizing it! If I can take something someone writes and make my life better for it - that is awesome! I should give them credit by commenting more. Hang in there Melissa - you are inspiring!

I am thankful for my siblings. Over the past 7 years we lost both of our parents (one to cancer). All we have is each other. We are very close and call frequently to say "hey, remember when Mom did this..." We work hard each day to keep their memories alive.

Stay strong!

I'm grateful for my family -- even when they are all home and being pesky. Also I'm grateful for medical science that can help anyone living with cancer.
Strong women Rock!!
