Re: Marilyn

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.

Love

Nicky xx

Re: Marilyn

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.

Re: Marilyn

On live chat tonight we will light a candle for Marilyn at 9.00pm, if anyone else would like to join us or just light a candle even if your not on live chat. Marilyn touched so many of us.

I'm going to light loads of candles!

Love Sue x

I am a primary lady who followed Marilyn on twitter, was hugely inspired by her and carried a ribbon with her name on at the Blenheim Pink Ribbon walk this year. May she rest in peace free from pain.

Re: Marilyn

I thought Marilyn was going to go on forever, she was proactive in getting our cupcake meetings organised.
Loved talking to her about Jewish culture and Israel, hope I can go again and put a prayer for her in the Western Wall.
Thinking of Di and Marilyn's family.
RIP dear friend xx

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.

Re: Marilyn

This is very sad news. I really thought that Marilyn could be one of the rare exceptions who get to die of old age, not this bl***y disease. Wishing strength and comfort to her family and all those who loved Marilyn. May she rest now in peace.

Thanks for letting us know, Belinda.

Re: Marilyn

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.

Re: Marilyn

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.
