I had no idea that Sandy had passed away or that she had a brain tumor. The link to her personal journey was an eye opener for me. If you have the time and a kleenex, it's heartbreaking, helpful and funny.

My nephew, Jordan Hansberry (Kittitas Grad) has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He's 25 years old and like Sandy, he's monitored regularly and has many symptoms she dealt with. I appreaciate the information and resources that she posted throughout her journey as they will be extremely helpful for Jordan.

There are no words that describe how I feel...

I have very fond memories of Sandy........especially when we were in elementary school. I remember one time she came to my house and brought me a beautifully decorated easter egg (the real hard boiled type of egg) and I liked it so much, I wrapped it up nicely and placed it in my sock drawer. Several weeks later, a horrible smell was coming from some where in my bedroom. My mom searched and searched and couldn't figure out where the odor was coming from. Finally, someone opened up my drawer and then I remembered I had safely stored the easter egg away in the back of the drawer. Mystery solved! Whenever I think of that special egg that Sandy gave me, it makes me smile......And, Sandy was a good egg!
