I am deeply sorry for your loss. David Foster will be missed. He was a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sincerely, Phyllis Crawford

Hi Hillary, Thank you for the updates on your Dad. I have been reading his post since being on Sutent in April. I can always relate to the things he touches on. Please assure him of my good wishes and prayers and please post as soon as you can and let us know how he is doing. Much love to all your family. Robbie

Hey Dave,
Get ready, 'cause this neck brace is gonna be comin' off soon, and I'll be able to drive again. So soon as I can find and purchase another car (or maybe tank this time), I'll be back over to see you all again.

I was going to say the same thing as Mary from Canada did about your posts Hillary--you sound a lot like your dad....what a great thing! We have soooo been praying for him...please tell him for all of us that we are pulling for him to bounce back quickly from this little setback. We need him for the grace and dignity he manages to impart on this hideous disease, his sense of humor, and his caring. You can tell how much he cares for all the Warriors and Knights that are out here fighting the good fight--we miss that. He is blessed to be a blessing to others. You have a wonderful family. Take care and please keep us posted. ~Bev and Chuck

Thanks for the update, Hillary. We're all thinking of your family right now, and looking forward to hearing even better news in the near future. Hang in there.

Your dad is such an amazing man, I always tell him I hope one day he knows how many lives he has touched thru this blog. He is an angel. Your dad and your entire family are in my prayers, today and every day!

I'm praying for you David. You hang in there. Aimee

Hillary, please let the old geezer...I mean...fellow Warrior, know we are all praying for him to get better real soon.

Thanks for the updates.

Hi Hillary
We are all there for your father and the rest of the Foster Family as well. Thank you again for giving us the update. You sound just like your Dad and have his sense of humor as well. You make me smile. We will await your next update. Mary in Canada
