    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I can't imagine all the thoughts are you going having right now. I can certainly "hear" the shock in your post. My heart hurts for you. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Love,

    AZ my thoughts and prayers go out to you in this very difficult moments. I hope you can reach out to the Drs and other support with people that dealt with cancer and also here with us that we understand your pain already. The most important thing to do now is to take care of yourself. Try to relax and take one day at a time. Your health needs to be put #1 and everything else need to wait. Find your refuge in your higher power that will be there next to you in this moments.
    Take care (hug)
