Grace Yee

YOU were a precious gift from God above, so much beauty, grace and love. YOU touched our hearts in many ways, your smile so bright even on the bad days. YOU heard God's whisper calling you home, you didn't want to go and leave us alone. YOU loved us so much, you held on tight, 'til all your strength was gone and could no longer fight.

Judy Hill

Judy Hill, a supporter of the GRACE community as long as we can remember. Judy attended every event and was always a force in the fight against lung cancer. A sweet and caring person, a teacher, an avid reader and sports fan, Judy loved crossword puzzles and walking in her lovely neighborhood. She shared herself with us all. She passed away after 7 years living with cancer, leaving a husband, parents, brother, sister and many friends and admirers. She is greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved her.

Jay Stewart

Jay was a shining light for many during his 3-year battle with lung cancer. He directed his own course of action, diligently researching on cancer sites such as GRACE. No one loved life more; no one fought more courageously. In the end, he passed with quiet surrender and showed me how to die with dignity. He still fills my heart with music. Farewell, my husband and best friend. Always and forever, Nancy

Myrtle Chidester

Myrtle was a generous and active participant in the GRACE community, and we miss her terribly. Her nonprofit organization, the Lung Cancer Connection lives on, continuing to provide valuable information to patients and families about the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer.

Ruth Elkes

The Elkes Foundation is pleased to help fund the GRACE pancreatic cancer area in honor of Ruth Elkes. She spent her life volunteering and helping others, including participating in clinical trials through her battle with pancreatic cancer. We would also like to remember the devotion and support given to her by her husband, Terrence Elkes, and hope that this site can serve as a resource for patients and their caregivers alike.

Thank You

I am new to Grace and wish to express my profound gratitude to the extraordinary efforts of the faculty members and moderators who work tirelessly and compassionately to educate and support individuals and family members dealing with cancer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Heidi "Chaya" Goldstein-Christensen and family

Debra Chidester Clampitt

My sister in law, Debra, drove from Chicago to my home in St Louis for over two years to care for me when I was sick, clean my house, and cook for my family while I was undergoing treatment. I was diagnosed shortly after moving from California so I had no support. As soon as my husband told Debbie of my diagnosis, she was here. I truly do not think that many people would put their entire life on hold to take care of someone they did not really know. We will never be able to repay her or say thank you enough. She is the sister I never had and my best friend. Thanks Deb, Myrtle

For Dr. Macapinlac

This tribute honors my Mom's oncologist, Dr. Macapinlac. At a time when my family needed words of knowledge and comfort, Dr. Mac delivered. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, professional, caring, and just a wonderful and good person. Dr. Mac was a blessing to us during our battle and we are sure he continues to be a blessing in the lives of his patients and their families. Although the battle for our loved one has ended, we could not have begun to fight without Dr. Mac in our corner. We thank him for all he did for us.
