Bahones 2

I have just received a message from Sara (Bahones2) husband Mike to say that she died in his arms on the 21st April at Carcassonne hospital. Sara’s knowledge of lymphodema was extensive and she helped so many of us with the extensive research she did. Sara was always there to support us whatever she was going through herself.

My love and condolences to her husband Mike, family and friends, another wonderful woman lost far too soon to this dreadful disease. So very sad.


I was aware that she hadn’t posted for a while, and was worried about that. As you say, she was very knowledgable about lymphoedema.

Another sad loss, my condolences to her family.

I’d also realised she hadn’t been on here for a while. Another dreadful, untimely loss to this disease. My thoughts are with her family and friends.

I am really sad and sorry to hear this news. I didn’t ‘know’ Sara at all, but am aware that she was a very regular and knowledgeable contributor to these forums. Thinking of her husband, family and friends at this time.

I am so shocked and saddened to hear this… I had realised that Sara hadn’t posted for a while but thought she was just taking a break from the forum for a while… Anne please send my condolences to her husband if you speak again… I am so sad at this news Sara was always so helpful to everyone.

I am so sad and upset to hear about Sara - she was quite an inspiration to me last year especially as we both lived in France. She was a good contact to have and we had planned to meet up - now our meeting place will be somewhere else! My sincere condolences go to her husband and family. She was a brave and fearless woman and a shining example to others. Ginny Groome

I am truly shocked and saddened by this news. I hadn’t realised she was so poorly. I had had contact with Sara about bread-making machines before Christmas and it was so lovely to have normal messages. She was always so very helpful to everyone on the forum.
I should be very grateful if you would pass on my condolences.

I’ve just looked at my PMs again and had one from Sara at the end of March. She gave me some great advice about acupuncture and lymphodema risk. What a loss!

Oh no… I’d exchanged a few PMs with Sara but not recently. Yes indeed, she was very helpful and knowledgeable and will be much missed on the forums.
My sympathy to Sara’s husband and family.
(Hope it may be helpful to say that if anyone is searching for her posts, her user name was Bahons2 (no space after the 2) If my memory was correct, she had achieved an Open University B.A Honours degree :slight_smile:

So so sad to read this news, I was another lymphoedema sufferer that Sara took time to help and inform, she was such a help and full of useful advice and sent me lots of relative articles. I know she will be sadly missed by family and friends but also by many of us on here ,she had such knowledge and was just such a nice person,another life ended too soon.

Like all the other posters, I am so shocked and saddened to hear this news. Sara was very informative, so knowledgeable and helpful in her posts and I always regarded her as the ‘lymphodaema queen’ on here.

My sincerest condolences to all her family and friends and I hope that the happy times they shared provide comfort in difficult times.
