So do not fear, for I am with you
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God
I will strengthen you and help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
Isaiah 41:10

From Madeleine:   

Merry Christmas!!

I am so blessed to be able to enjoy the holidays with such wonderful supportive loving people. I am so thankful for all I have been given and to be feeling well on Christmas.

Have a great day everyone!

Hi Madeleine,

Great to hear that you were feeling good on Christmas day! Probably does't hurt having a handsome guy like Austin around for the Holidays!

Have a great New Year weekend and Eve! Our thoughts are with you.

Hi Madeleine and family,

I have been out of touch the last three months due to a very busy student teaching schedule, and I finally had a chance to get up to date on your progress! I especially like the poem you wrote in September, the last time I checked the blog. However, you have not been forgotten! I still wear the bracelet that reminds me to pray for you most everyday. So glad you have been able to enjoy this Christmas season with your family and friends. I love that you always have that beautiful smile on your face regardless of what you are facing. We have that in common. My prayer for you is that this new year brings the healing you so desire and deserve. May God bless and strengthen you and your family as you continue to fight this battle!

Love and Hugs, Maria Aiello Saunders

P.S. Please say "Hi" to Max and your Mom for me! =)

Hi Madeleine,
My name is Eileen and I am also a patient of Dr. Gailani. I am 43 and live in Orange County. I went through three rounds of biochemo beginning Sept. 15 thru Nov.1. Dr. Gailani spoke of you often. I never got to meet you because we were on opposite schedules. When you were admitted, I was just leaving. It was grueling to say the least and I am happy that it is over with. I am stage 3b. Mole on my leg, traveled to lymphnodes in right groin. I had those removed but still needed the treatment. My latest PET showed that I am clear. I have signed up to get emails about your blog and I will continue to pray for you. You are a warrior and an inspiration! Happy New Year!
