I'm so sorry. It's beyond difficult to lose such a good friend, and now to go through your own diagnosis and treatment. I hope you'll check out all the links on the main page for support for your own journey. And please know that you're not alone in your loss. We've all lost precious friends here and we remember them in our posts often. Their support meant the world to us and it's keenly felt when they're not physically there to talk to.
There are wonderful people on these boards who make good friends. I've made a lot in my time here. I wish you the same as you make your way through this. Be good to yourself, pamper yourself.
