Merry Christmas Dave and family. When I get a few moments I will
go to your posts and see how the battle is going. Horray for your
strength and constant positive attitude and I want to thank you for
sharing with everyone your life story. My hubby, Brian was hospitalized last Tues. and still in over Christmas. I will share your
recent posts with him there. Three months on Sutent and the Dr.
has taken him off of it and yesterday started Interferon. The "battle" continues. Keep up the great posts and hope you and the
family have the best Christmas and New Years ever. Many blessings.

We wish you a Merry Christmas!
We-that is my father (a knight, like you) and me, his daughter, his reason for fighting.
I wanted to write to you long time ago, but I waited for today, Christmas day, the day of HOPE , in order to tell you that you are in my heart and I wish you strength , courage, health!
And I also want to say THANK YOU! You mean a lot to me and my father. My father is a great guy, terribly fearless, a hero, like you. But when he started Sutent, we were very confused, and you were a big help.
I am sorry, I am not used to writing, the way you are and I think words are not enough...I wish I could say more, write better... but...anyway...we are right here, next to you and we wish a great Christmas and we thank you.

Merry Christmas Dave and Sherry, I hope you get to eat everything your heart(for men that's the same thing as stomach)desires. I look forward to many more post in 2008. I am sure we will experience Torisel through your eyes.. Much happiness to you and yours. Blessings, Robbie

Merry Christmas! Thinking of you and Sherry and praing for you to have a wonderful day.

Well AMEN to that. Eat away big guy and enjoy every bite. Joe said to tell you he had his moment today as well and ate so much he had a belly ache but he said "man it felt good". So enjoy your Christmas dinner and eat till your hearts content. Merry Christmas Dave, Sherry, Alex and the rest of the family. Let us all pray for renewed Hope for 2008. Love to all
