That's a wonderful selfless thing you've done for them.

I'm a cancer survivor... over 3 years now. With the modern treatments, it's no longer a the death sentence it once was. I hope your sister continues on and becomes another lifelong survivor of this awful disease.

Beachboy - I agree - there is no quick fix for curing cancer, and one way or the other it is going to be a long road and will require perseverance, stick-to-ism and positive thinking abilities. And the choice of going natural or non-traditional, traditional surgery/chemo/radiation or a combination of both, is totally up to what the individual believes in. I just brought it up because a lot of folks think that what the medical associations and big pharma say, are all there is to it. There is an abundance of alternate treatment protocols that you use singly or in combination - that can make enormous differences in your wellbeing and survival rates.

Just saying as most serious RV'ers seem to look at life in a different way - look outside of the box in regards to cancer as well... There is more than one way to deal with it.

That was a generous and loving thing to do for your sister and family. What you said about getting out and enjoying things while you can is an important message to everyone. I almost lost my wife a few years back and it has changed our outlook on many things. We try and get out and enjoy but still get caught up in life. Thanks for the reminder and we wish your sister a good and speedy recovery.

Well Bruce - we haven't heard from you in some time. I hope all worked out well for everyone.

Miss seeing you run the welcome wagon with your kind greetings and comments. I was reviewing some old posts and was reminded of this thread - so I had to check in and let ya know some of us are thinking of you, your wife and family.

I have a 2009 Winnebago Chalet 30' class C that I haven't used since I bought the Safari. If you want to travel with them and don't mind coming to Ohio to pick it up feel free, no charge one Navy vet to another. It's been in storage since I go the Safari so you would be saving me $35.00 a month.

I was just thinking the same thing. How great would it be to travel around with them. I hope you have the opportunities to do so. God Bless you and yours.

Bless you Bruce. you have shown unconditional love to your sister and BIL...
You have given them a miracle ...
A friend is offering you and your wife the chance to travel with them... another miracle ...

Also good advice too, at least a combination of traditional and alternative medicines for cancer, I am a great proponent of this esp the alternative which includes diet... foods we eat will help to heal too.

I have learned to face each day and 'expect' a miracle, sometimes that is just waking up in the morning, grateful to be here ...sometimes the miracle isn't so obvious ... and some days it comes through a post on a forum, reminding me
there are miracles every day for someone...

So teach yourself and the family to just 'expect' a miracle ... life can amaze you sometimes....

Bless you all, accept the gifts offered with the same heart you gave to your sister...such love never goes unrewarded...
Young at heart,

Let us know when they hit the road & if you can, where they might be stopping. If they are near where I am, I'd be happy to meet up. Check in. Play tour guide if wanted. Share a meal. I imagine others would be up for this too.

I'd lay you odds that most fellow RVers would consider it an honor to assist in the travels. We would for sure.

If in Southern California I would be glad to give them a home cooked meal and a tour of L.A and Hollywood and a stay at the beach around Malibu.
