I hope I'm putting this in the correct place. I wanted to let you know my good news because you were all so good at supporting me through the last harrowing 12 months. My DiL was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer last February and we were told it was terminal. Her bone cancer is now contained but her breast cancer had spread. So she had to have a mastectomy and second lot of treatment. Last Thursday her consultant told her that her breast cancer is in remission. We're all hopeful that means she will have many more years ahead of her. She's been so amazing. I can't tell you the relief.

That is such wonderful news morethan You have all had a terrible time and I have thought about your son losing his wife and the children losing their mother. I hope everyone's prayers have been answered and she lives a long and happy life.
It must seem like a miracle to you.

Oh Morethan! How wonderful! It has been such an awful time for you all. I'm sure DD will still need a lot of TLC after all her treatment but at last she has had good news. What a relief! Hopefully she continues to get stronger and enjoys her life with her young family.

Silverlining keeping my fingers crossed for your DD. Look after yourself.
