The Loss of Jane

I sadly read today about the passing of my friend Jane who has been so courageously fighting kidney cancer now for the past several months.  Her blog has provided cancer patients as well as caregivers such encouragement and inspiration along her journey.  She has contributed tremendously to kidney cancer patients through her efforts to find new treatments as well as availability and funding to patients.  

Her legacy will live on in each of us who were honored to have known her through her blog, as well as to the many lives she has touched throughout the world.  

Jane lived life to the fullest after receiving her diagnosis of kidney cancer and her heroic efforts throughout her illness will live in our hearts forever.  She will be sadly missed.

Jane's Journey has now ended and she is home at last.  My deepest sympathies to her family.
