Our beloved friend, Dixiecollie, is in treatment for cancer.  She is starting a chemo drug regime that will likely last for over a year.  Dixiecollie will be taking a very toxic drug, three weeks on, one week to rest from it, possibly for as long as fifteen months.  It will be very harsh and she is likely to feel many shades of lousy but it is what she needs to do to be well.

It is always hard to see people we love go through something hard and extremely painful.  A well known visitor to the Pootie diaries and very good friend to many here, jwinIL14, has just been diagnosed with lung cancer.  He is scheduled to have surgery on Sept. 25, certain tests allowing.  He is hoping they will have to remove less tissue rather than more… Regardless, it will be a very major surgery.

Twingrace is a very kind and gentle person, as we who follow various community diaries know all too well. Therefore it is particularly saddening to learn that she has been enduring great pain for a long, long time. 

If human lives are looked at as storylines, many of them adventures with multiple hardships to overcome, then Freelance Escapologist and his wife, Kim, are true heroes. 

Joan McCarter started the ball rolling on this project for Sen. Reid yesterday with her lovely tribute diary, Community Quilt Project: Let's send a proper Daily Kos thank you to a Democratic giant, Harry Reid.  As you may have heard, Sen. Reid has had a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
