I have a colleague who was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer approximately 5 years ago.  He had his right lung removed and he's going strong now, no signs of cancer.  His positive outlook and faith in God is what got him to where he is today.  I'll be going to church this evening I'll say prayers for the both of you.  Roger

Prayers up from here as well. Pete and Ann, hang on to your faith. This is still risky business but it is no longer the grim prospect it was just a few years ago. You can beat this!!

 I read this last night an couldn't post my consent of prayer. I get so depressed every time I hear or read the word cancer. I prayed for quick healing for Mrs Drouins and for Peter for strength in being her care giver.

Please send your prayers to NH
Peter Drouin's wife Ann has 4 cancerous tumors in one lung.
Things aren't looking good for Ann and Peter
Thank You Bruno
Best wishes.  About 10 yr. ago my mom had "too numerous to count"  cancer nodules in her lungs.  She did great for almost 5 yrs.  Since then, there have been great improvements in the drugs.

My thoughts and prayers also. I only met Pete the one time, and know he's a hard worker with a good heart
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

Talked with Peter today.
Ann has stage 4 lung cancer 
They are starting treatment next week.
It doesn't sound good to me.
My Dad passed of the same thing.
I'm very sad for Peter and Ann.
Peter is behind on orders because he has so much to do with Ann.
Who would be willing to go help him with me on a Saturday.
You know I can't do much but I would bring one of my helpers.
I could also cook lunch burgers and dogs.
Please let me know.
I'm walking with a walker I will do what I can.
Thanks Bruno

Peter, difficult time for you and your family and one I've been through as I'm a 2 x cancer survivor (2 different types, I'm genetically flawed)  myself.   Positive thinking helps combined  with aggressively following doctors orders re all treatments.  The advances in chemotherapy are startling and we hope she responds well after surgery.  As the going gets tough a positive forward looking face on things is going to mean so much to her.  My only suggestion is to bitch and complain and unburden yourself here and with others but keep a strong distance between unburdening and your wife's circle of friends and comfort.  The more they see you as the rock of Gibraltar the more help you'll be to her.  Giving her the space to focus on healing without stress of worrying about you.  

I only wish I were not so so far from you so I could help Bruno on a weekend.  I'm a bit limited in my own travels due to my farm and family circumstances but I'll be there in spirit.  If anyone from southern PA is heading up I'd donate a log for sure....and you know me, it would be something special.

Keep this thread updated with plans to help. I'd love to go, but I'm the sole field crew for the company. If I don't do it, it doesn't get done. BUT, if the stars align right, I may be able to swing it. If something comes together, I can consider possiblilities.

In any case, best wishes to Peter and Ann. I'm rooting for you.
