Shannon is a 17 year old teenager who was diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer in September 2009. On October 30th I was craving pumpkins with the boys when I received a phone call from Shannon's mother Angela. She introduced herself then in quest to help her daughter battle this cancer she started grilling me for any information she could get out of me about this disease. Being a mother myself I just felt so overwhelmed with grief for Angela and eager in anyway I could to help her. Since then Angela and I kept in touch and exchanged all the information our research could dig up. I then started corresponding with Shannon and saw right away why her nickname was "The Warrior". She was a fighter and had hope.
Unfortunately, circumstances took her life but her legacy goes on forever. I want to go on writing to honor her and her battle but my heart is aching. I have to add however, I truly hate this cancer and in the name of Shannon and all my other Carcinoid Posse who have gone on I am determine to make this rare cancer become known.
God bless Shannon angel. Please keep her family in your prayers tonight.
Angela: Death leaves heartache no one can heal, love leaves memory no one can steal.
May you one day find peace in your daughters memory and love.
