Survivor Stories / Tributes

Mary Blume

Personal Description:


Our mother passed away peacefully March 15, 2010 at 12:45am surrounded by her loving husband Paul, her 4 children and wonderful caregiver. A bell rang early the day she passed away and we all knew Mary received her wings. We can all be comforted to have Mary watching over us.

Personal Description:

Mary was born February 26, 1935 in Chicago, IL. She was married June 28, 1958 to Paul. She was a loving spouse, wonderful mother and grandmother and true friend to all who knew her. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991 and was a survivor for 19 years. In October 2006 she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and was ready to fight the disease with all that she had. We almost lost her after a very difficult surgery but were blessed to have 3 more years with her. She loved spending time with family and friends, going to Vero Beach, FL, and knitting. We will miss her terribly but know she will live forever in our hearts. We love you Mom!!

This is such an important topic, Diane thakns for spreading the word. My mom’s breast cancer was discovered very early and she had great docs. Fifteen years later, she’s still doing fine.
