Hello All, I have sad news. 

Laurie died yesterday morning. She was comfortable and pain-free until the end. Her end of life care was exceptional. 

I am beyond grateful for all the love and support we have received. It has made going through an impossible ordeal possible.

As I have been reminded over the last few days, knowing something is coming doesn't make it any easier.

In the next while we will be thinking about the best ways to remember Laurie. I would welcome your thoughts and input in the future.

With Love,

How terribly sad for all concerned. I am so pleased that it was a peaceful passing for Laurie. She had been on my mind quite a bit as we touched base over a year ago when I had requested purchasing her book. As we live in the same city , and fairly close to one another, she was going to drop it off for me. When that didn’t happen, I really didn’t want to intrude. Laurie was an extraordinary and brave women—a very selfless woman who,even during the worst of times, shared her journey for the benefit of others.

May her great spirit and accomplishments give you and your family comfort during this difficult time.

I'm very sorry for your loss and wish you and your family love and peace as you grieve and celebrate her life.

I found Laurie's blog a year and a half ago, after I was diagnosed with cancer and was searching online for some words other than "think positive!" and a seemingly endless stream of people who wanted to tell me about either a family member's horrible struggle and death from cancer, or the new miracle cure they just read about on Facebook ... no thank you!

Laurie's writing was challenging, comforting, and inspirational. She suffered so much, but what I saw was a woman never willing to give up -- neither on treatment nor on herself -- and that is what I found brave. It's easy to lose yourself and feel like you have "become" cancer. The very name of her blog announced that her life wasn't just about that.

So this is a thank-you note, to Laurie, may you rest in peace, and to those who loved and supported her. You have helped me and I'm sure countless others feel less alone and a little more brave.

With love,

She was an example for many of us, she made a difference in the lives of people who never met her.
