Survivor Stories / Tributes

Linda Williams

Personal Description:


Linda M. Williams, 62, died Aug. 31, 2009, with her family by her side at home, after a courageous three-year battle with ovarian cancer. She was born June 16, 1947, in Bangor, the daughter of Paul and Eleanor (Seger) Reilly.

Personal Description:

This wall is dedicated to our loving wife, Mum-Ma, MiMi, Sister and Friend. My mom Linda, fought a long, hard 3yrs and 4mnths. She had every Ovarian chemo, I/P treatment, ect, the whole time only taking a break when her counts were so low they would not let her have a treatment. She fought to her very last breath and we love and admire her for her tireless and brave fight. She never had pain, she was just a little tired. Ya right. but that’s the way she was.
Mom had all the hard hitting Ovarian chemo-therapies but she could not tolerate them long enough for them to do any good. Every time her CA125 would rise she would say “what’s next, I’m not ready to give up,I feel to good to die, I am just a little tired but other than that I am OK.” We will miss her every minute of every day. Please leave a donation to help find a cure for this horrible and deadly cancer.

>I’ve really found that some steiors completely entice me while others seem perfectly nice but just don’t have me rushing to the page.I think this setting thing is probably the biggest reason that I don’t like to write contemporary, but like you say, you can focus on different things. I’m sure there are plenty of great ways to contrast characters and plot with the familiar modern setting.I haven’t written anything more today (Tuesday) but have had a fun, relaxing evening. I think it’s refilling that creative well that I’ve so been neglecting.
