Welcome to Angie's CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.
By now all of you know that Angie's cancer has come back. They found it at a very early stage and she is going to have rounds of chemo again to fight it. She had her first infusion the end of January and is anticipating another infusion on Thursday. She will have an infusion 3 every weeks.
Trish and Paula went for a visit on Valentine's Day and realized what a tough time she is having. She seemed depressed and overwhelmed. Paula reached out to her brother, Tony, to say that we wanted to be more organized in our outreach to Angie. Our help with meals, shopping, transportation and just plain companionship will be more effective if we are somewhat organized. At this point, checking in with regular visits is probably the most beneficial way we can be helpful. The effects of the chemo are cumulative, as Tony (Angie's younger brother) said, so we want to be poised to help in other ways if necessary.
This Caring Bridge site is just a first step in organizing our efforts. If we know when others are visiting, we can pace our efforts. If you have accepted the invitation to be a co-author, you are able to sign up to visit directly on the "Planner" page (Click on "Ways to Help" then click on "Planner"). You may also email MarchPartners@paulamarch.com or email@example.com to let us know and we will add you to the calendar. If there are others to be added to this list, please go ahead and invite them by going to "Setting" and then "Invite" and following the instructions.
Thank you for your caring friendship - Paula and Georgi
