Default Card Request for Lorayne (Stage 4 Cancer)

Hello All - Lorayne is my Step-Mother In Law and last month she was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer that has metastasized. It is in her spine, lungs and liver and throughout her abdomen.

She has had a tough week and is very weak from the chemo. She lives far away from me and she doesn't have much family.

I thought it would be wonderful and hopefully lift her spirits if she received cards. So anyone who would be able to... her address is...

Lorayne Williams
1800 Village Circle Apt 75
Lancaster, PA 17603

Thank you so much!

I love it when a daughter-in-law cares about her mother-in-law. I will send a card to Lorayne tomorrow.

Just wanted to give an update on my Mother in Law.... She is doing ok, but has been pretty sick for the last month or so. They have switched her from the oral chemo medication to I.V.chemo. The oral medication didn't help so the cancer got worse in her liver and because the liver is not functioning properly she retains alot of fluid in her legs which makes walking, standing, etc pretty tough. She can still walk but for the most part she is in a wheelchair. She gets her infusion once a week for 3 weeks and then has a week off. And because she is on the I.V. chemo she is starting to lose her hair. She is very tired most of the time and sleeps alot, but her attitude is still good and she still has a light in her eyes. She has good days where she may pop on facebook for a bit, or even check email, but for the most part she just doesn't has the strength right now. She took a fall a couple of nights ago and is ok, but they are now working on trying to get the swelling in her legs under control so she can walk better. Thanks again to all you lovely ladies who took the time to put a card in the mail for her. Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you.... I spoke to her on Thanksgiving... and she sounded horrible... not only was she weak from chemo and all but she was battling a bad cold.

She did mention that the cards she receives do brighten her day, so thank you!
