This is such sad news, Marilyn will be missed by all of us secondary ladies on here as well as her partner, family and friends. Her legacy really is The Xeloda Queen, as Val and some other ladies said earlier, and gave such inspiration to many of us who are also on the same treatment. May she rest in peace.
I am wondering if this is the same Marilyn I knew from another forum. She was originally American, Jewish and has a life partner. I think her surname is Fletcher ... actually looking at her on Twitter I think this must be her. SOB, scream, cry, RIP Marilyn.
Hello Julie, yes absolutely, I am going to email the whole thread to Di in a couple of days.
SueCheshire, Sue I have sent you another private message.

I heard yesterday, and send my condolences to Marilyn's partner and family. She was one of the original Manchester Cupcakes.... there aren't many left. She was so knowledgeable and supportive, to everyone. may she rest in peace.
Thankyou for letting us know about Marilyns death. She gave so much hope to so many people starting capecitabine...me included. Condolences to her family. RIP Marilyn. Pamx aka herbgarden.
So sad to read about Marilyn who I had many concersations with over the years. Thank you for letting us know. Someone had put a message about her on another site. I believe she was with her nearest and dearest when she passed away. Another beutiful woman taken far far too soon. Miss you Xeloda Queen.
This is sad news indeed. I never met Marilyn, but I write as one of the many users of this forum who were encouraged by her postings.
May she live on in many people's memories.
I'm very sorry to say Marilyn, marilf, has passed away.
She helped so many other others here and showed how you could still live a good life after a secondary diagnosis.
I last saw Marilyn this summer, by the sea.
She will be missed by many. Belinda.
