    I didn't see this post or any of the "rudeness???" but no harm was meant by posting for help. I have been a somewhat regular poster here. Sorry if I offended anyone. If anyone is interested in how Maryanne is you can e-mail me privatly. studentnurse_cna@yahoo.com

    Sheryl & Cag,
    Don't be hurt by the responses you received. When you accepted the "terms of agreement" to this forum, you agreed to the following:

    "By clicking the Agree button, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws. Advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate on this BB ."

    The above is, I'm sure, why your thread was deleted.

    I'm sickened everytime I think of what your family is going through, but that doesn't change the terms of agreement. The internet is a magnet for scams; many people have fallen victim to scams and are angered. I'm sure no one intended to add to the pain you're already bearing.

    God bless you all, and you will be in my prayers.

    I wasn't offended by any of your posts regarding Maryanne, but did find it a little odd to see a post asking for money. I think the schemes that you hear about everyday on the internet have made otherwise generous and giving people a little cautious.

    I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless Maryanne.

    I can understand the caution and I won't post anymore "asking for money". I have posted before, long before this to the fact that I have 6 children, I am in school full time. Only my husband works at this time. I'm sure all here can understand somewhat that I'm scared 1. For the health of my daughter and her future 2. The emotional issues of my other children, four of them are still very young. 3. financially. The facts are, with HMO's the way they are, I will probably have some trouble getting them to pay for her treatment. I have to keep a roof over my head and my children, and have transportation for 2-3 years of treatments. This is suppose to be a happy time of year, and for me it is miserable.

    I always took for granted that my children have their health, cancer is something you see on TV, happens to other children but not yours. I have been forced to realize that no matter how good the prognosis is, it isn't 100%. If my daughter was in the % of children that get ALL, she can be in the percent that doesn't survive it. I believe she WILL RECOVER, but unless I have a guarentee (which we all know there is none) I can't be certain.

    My intention was not to sell anything, or come across as a fraud. I personally didn't see anything "odd" about my mothers post. I wouldn't have found it odd if ANYONE posted that.

    There is a lot of gimmics in the world, but there are also parents who are genuinly scared, don't know where to turn for help, and when your child is involved, will do anything.
    I so appreciate the prayers and I hope they continue, thank you.

    I didn't find anything offensive. When you are in NEED of help and you don't know where else to turn, you will think of anything. some times I think people get toooo technical and have cold hearts. I wish you and your family the very best and hope for a speedy recovery for Maryanne.

    God Bless, you are in my prayers.

    Naturally I wish you the best as you help Maryanne to recovery. As I believe I stated in another post, we all have personal struggles with family members who are terminally ill, and all have financial barriers. As a result, it is hard to "just give." I have a hard enough time giving to MY family.

    I think your post asking for money though on a nursing BB was just not the most appropriate method. I had suggested having a bake sale in Maryanne's honor to raise funds. This way it allows other members of the family or your church or community who would otherwise feel helpless feel like they are actually DOING something. And it's not a hand-out. Perhaps investigate this route. I'm sure once your community gets wind of such an event, you will be SOLD OUT of Christmas cookies.

    Good luck to you and God Bless.
