Survivor Stories / Tributes

Jean Thorbrogger

Personal Description:


Our lovely Mom lost her three year battle with ovarian cancer on June 16, 2009. She fought so hard to survive, always with a quiet grace and positive spirit. I miss her every day.

My mom was the same way and she lost her battle after 13 months. She fought hard and all the doctors and nurses said “You never complain!” Quiet grace and positive spirit sounds just like my mom and I completely understand how you feel. It really helps to talk to people in the same situation. God bless you and your family!

Mom, we think about you every day and miss you so much. Though the joy that you brought us is so difficult to live on without, our memories of your love and your strength remain so clear to comfort and inspire us forever.
