    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?

    I am so sorry about your fiance. Please talk to the doctors about this or get a second opinion in that hospital, but if you trust in the docotors you are using then you need to believe they are doing everything they can to help her.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to you both!
    Good Luck and Good health, Chrissy WebMD Community Staff

    thank you for your response but sadly my fiance had passed away on august 14 2010 the drs did try everything they could to try and save her life but the cancer was too advanced and all the complications were too much for her body to handle
