My friend Helen died on Wednesday from kidney cancer aged 41.

We never met, but had spoken on the phone and exchanged emails over the past 18 months. 

I will miss her bright, positive outlook on life.  I will miss the easy, comfortable way we used to chat about the mutual problems kidney cancer brought into our lives.

I will miss you Helen.

God Bless.

So sorry to hear about your Friend, and how you will miss the conversations.
My BIL has Bladder Cancer, and unable to have treatment, just being made 'comfortable'
All happened since around March, still hard to take in even now.
You are one brave Lady, and I wish you well!

So sorry to hear this, 41 is no age and so sad that she has died so young.  How great though that you made friends and that she bought comfort to you.  Hugs, Tells x

Deeply saddened by this news, Jane. If it is any consolation, Helen is no longer suffering, but it would have been nicer to have had her around a bit more.
