To Don and Family: I am so sorry and very sad over the loss of Carol. I met Carol six years ago through the Cancer Survivor Network and we became very close and personal friends. I will miss Carol tremendously and will always remember her, and I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

With Deepest Sympathy,

I met Carol on the American Cancer Society's Survivor's Network. She and I had the same kind of aggressive uterine cancer and she was such an inspiration to me as a long-term survivor. She was always there to offer hope and encouragement. We will all miss her!

To Carol's husband and family, I am so sorry for the loss of beautiful wife and mother. She was loved by all on the Cancer Survivor Network chat board. Her courageous battle was inspirational while she shared her struggles and educated us along the journey.

May you find some peace knowing that she touched many people's lives, and her words will live on to help others.
