Ya, I didn't know, I thought the reference was just to a circus bear.

Long time regular poster who got cancer and passed in January just a few months after being diagnosed. The original prognosis was something like no more than 6 months. I think she got diagnosed in Sep or Oct.

I was in the scouts for about a year. Did not fit in, too much emphasis on getting badges, I just wanted to go camping.

Later joined the Explorers club. Much better, had girls in it too, Was a much better fit, no badges, but lots more hands on learning.

If you look back to roughly last October and before, she posted as Redheadwithglasses or AngelaMN

I don't think Cycle knew as much about baseball or football as this lady obviously does. Not that there's anything wrong with that....

And you know, young lady, there was a group of regulars before you seized control here and started ruling with an iron fist. Even Sub's boss, Angelique was not a founding member even though it was 'her' who most likely pulled the original thread.

All the topix treads got dropped like a hot potato when the Chicago Tribune changed formats... The Regulars was no exception.
That is the day when Andie J. started this one as a replacement.

It had nothing to do with Angelique.

she was diagnosed late stage, didn't have any major behavioral risk factors and was rather active. there wasn't any reasonable treatment that would get her much more time... chemo might maybe have gotten her 2-3 more months, but she would have been miserable. she charged ahead with the attitude of having more life in her days than days in her life. she was candid with her journey.

for someone i've never met in person, her experience has touched me (and many others) greatly. She is an inspiration in how to live one's last days.

BTW, has anyone heard if she did put together the playlist that she talked about? I'd love to compile it for myself...

Really? That Obama thread that you post on here on the Chicago Forum just passed ONE MILLION posts and has been active since '08. How was it that it made the cut?

That's my story and I am sticking to it.
I was posting on another thread linked to the Chicago Tribune that got pulled the very same day.

I found out about 10 years ago that I had cancer, and there was a chance it was in my lymph nodes. I was lucky, when they did the surgery, my lymph nodes were clear, and I am basically cancer free today. Although I always have the chance of getting a different form. It really changes you, looking at the possibility of your life being over at a young age. I know it changed me. Sorry I didn't get to chat with her. It seems she is deeply missed.

I just talked to her best friend. She said that Ang had great ideas, but follow through was not her strong suit, so unfortunately no.

We know she loved Queen and Heart, though :)

I wouldn't be surprised if her best friend puts it together. If I hear of one being done, I'll let you know and please do the same if you hear of one put together.

thanks for the update... i smile when i hear queen on satellite radio (and i just had a 6 hour round trip road trip). Knowing her favorite artists is one thing, but learning her favorite songs by them and some of her other favorites is... dunno... not better, but...

guess i'm a little sentimental today! That's what happens when i'm left alone for too many days! ;-j
