Hi, all -
I'm not sure who is still around in the forum; I know it's been AGES since I myself have had a chance to post. But this is a very important message about Sharon Farrow, our dear friend who built TJ's website and has managed the site and this forum for over 10 years (I'm pretty sure that's how long it's been!!).
As you may or may not know already, she's been fighting hard through cancer treatments, radiation and chemo this past year. It's been a rough ride, especially lately.
I'm so very sorry to say that I got a call from her sister this evening that things have taken a turn for the worse, the cancer has spread very quickly, and the doctors think she may only have days or weeks left.
It's difficult news most especially for her family, and for all of us who know and love her.
She can't communicate, but they think she can still understand when they speak to her. So if you've got any messages you'd like her family to relay to Sharon or messages that you'd like to send specifically to her family, you're welcome to put the messages here in the comments, or send them to me (direct message me here and I'll send you my email address) and I'll forward them on to her sister, or you can contact her sister Jeri directly via text (message me for her phone number). Just identify who you are so we'll know who is contacting us and that it's about Sharon.
Please send all your most comforting thoughts Sharon's way.
P. S. If you know any of Sharon's friends off this site (who aren't on Facebook), please let them know what's going on. Her sister is trying to contact as many as she can, but it's challenging not knowing some of her login info.
I want to thank anyone who spends part of their day creating [& sharing their experience]. I don't care if it's a book, a film, a painting, a dance, a piece of theater, a piece of music… I think this world would be unlivable without art. ~ S. Soderbergh
