    To my BYC “Family”,

    As some of you know, my sister Rita has been under going treatment for lung cancer. She had 2/3rds of a lung removed, as well as some rib bones back in May this year.

    This is her last two weeks of “big guns” chemo and she is just miserable. She has bronchitis as well, and is now having the 4th round of antibiotics.

    I have told her there are many prayers going up for her from those she doesn’t even know, and she is very grateful.

    If any would care to send a card, I know it would make her day!

    Her address:
    PM me
    Thank you so much for your support.

    Blessings and love to you all,

    My dad had more than 3/4 of a lung removed and still cont to smoke and he passed in Jan (not natural by any means)

    I just dealt with bronchitis just 2 months ago and it has dissappeared for a little while but from experience will show itself when winter hits.

    But your sister is extremely LUCKY to have you and you are extremely LUCKY to have her as I am the only child and only have a best friend to turn to.
