My girlfriend of 2 1/2 years lost her battle with colon cancer last Monday. She just turned 32 on the 13th of this month.
She signed up here in September of last year but only made a few posts, then she took a turn for the worse and never got back on.

She bought her 1998 Trans am her self and that was her baby.. When we met she started to race it and at the end of last summer, we got her to run a 12.89 @ 108 mph pass.. She was so pumped and really happy that day.

This has changed my life forever, just thought I would share this. Here is the last pic at the track, she got her 12 sec pass and changed clothes in the pic.

She loved racing, sports, snowmobiling and was an all out cool girl. She will forever be missed. R.I.P.

And a quick video of me, and some of her friends and family.

I am very sorry for your loss brother, I lost my mom to colon cancer my senior year of high school, its a terrible thing to watch a loved one go through, but I am comforted by the fact that she is not in pain anymore, as you should be as well.

Damn! I'm really sorry to hear that. She looked like a wonderfull person. My wife and I have been married for 29 years and I couldn't imagine life without her.

I'm not a religious person but I pray you go on with life the way she'd want you to. Celebrate the good times. She so appreciated that you stood by her side the whole time.
God Bless!

32 is way to young to go out.. So sorry to hear that, and I feel for you!!!

My older brother lost his wife of 35 years old to breast cancer just 8 years ago, and left behind two young children and a devistated older brother.. I cried at her open casket funeral, realising that her two young boys (my nefews will never see their mother again). I don't cry often either..

The worst part was that my brother told me when the cancer reached her brain she was cursing at him, saying mean words he has never heard her say before.. Just horrible stuff as she lost her mind and then shortly after lost her life... She was so kind and open hearted too. I miss her dearly still to this day:bang:

I also hate cancer.. Wish they would find a cure already!!!

She fought her little heart out till the end.. on the Sunday before she was saying she is going to beat this and cant wait to go fishing.

I know she is in a better place now and pain free.. being one of the paul barrers, I was with her to the very end.

The weird/cool thing was, the Tuesday after her death, I had a dream that she was leaning over me, telling her mom that shes ok, shes ok.. So, I took that as a sign, That helped.

coming from someone who has been there, that is the absolute most important thing to keep in mind in an ordeal such as this. like I said earlier, I am terribly sorry for your loss, but you will see her again one day when it's your time.

My heart goes out to you and her family in this very sad time.

Be thankful that you got to spend time with a wonderful person and got to share in her life.

Cherish the good times you spent together and keep her spirit alive.

Believe it or not, one quote that has really helped me with the loss of a loved one was this:

You can't let one bad moment spoil a bunch of good ones.

God speed.

Very sorry for your loss. Cancer is a terrilbe thing. My younger brother was diagnosed with liver cancer at 16, and had a liver transplant at 17, and now must live his entire life in fear that it will come back or relapse.

Try to hold on to the good times you had together.

Maybe turn her car into a drag racer as a tribute to her, since it sounds like she like drag racing.

Im really sorry for your loss, i lost my father to Pancreatic Cancer back in Nov. of 08. I know how your feeling and what you've gone through this whole time dealing with this illness. Its the worst feeling imaginable guys, you really see just how serious this illness is. I still cry when i think about my dad, but im also happy that he's no longer suffering and in a better place. Its a pain that will always be there, no matter how much we put it in the back of our minds. It stays there till we think about them, but we have to move on and make the best of things and remember. They want us to be happy, move on with our lives but always remember them and have them in our hearts. Keep your head up, i know its hard but take it day by day and just remember the good times and the things you loved the most about her.

Dude,

My heart just dropped man. I am sorry to hear about your loss. Seems like she did exactly what she wanted over the last few years, and filled them with happiness. Good thing she had someone like you to spend times with as well. Take care, and trust in <insert your higher entities name here>. Things like this never make sense on why bad shit happens to good people.

I pray she was born again, then will she have gone to a better place.
Cancer is very brutal and 1 in 3 is projected to get it, due to all the free radicals and toxins in our environment.
The only way to fight it is by antioxidants, eating healthy, exercising and supplements.
Just keeping it real from a spiritual and physical stand point, so others don't have to suffer hell in this world and the next.

I agree with what was mentioned earlier that you will see her again, but until then all anyone can do is move on and take it one step at a time. Know that I'll be praying for you and your family and everyone thats involved.

OP i'm sorry for your loss and like others, i too know the feeling of having a loved on taken by cancer. my Dad when i was 9 died of pancreatic cancer, his neice (my cousin) when i was 23 she died of breast cancer, my grandmother (step-grandmother not blood related) died of lung cancer less than 10 years ago :( cancer is a horrible thing to watch someone go through, but rest assured she's in a better place and waiting for you to join her but not until you live your life.

Jody man just remember the guys on MNGMP are there for ya and will help you out as much as they can. That's a very touching video, actually brought tears to my eye's bro :(
same here, when it comes to death of a loved one especially dealing with cancer i get choked up and mainly think about my own father.

I am very sorry for your loss. We really NEED to find a cure for cancer as it is a very evil disease that does not discriminate. The video is a great memorial.

There are cures for certain kinds but your not gonna get it in the states. My wifes grandpa was told by a hospital here that he had some kind of cancer & would need to start treatments right away or he could pass on within a years time. He didnt like the possible side effect of modern medicine so he did some searching & found a doctor in Mexico known for curing certain types of cancer without mordern medicine. So he took a trip down there, stayed for 2 weeks & came back. Once back he followed that doctors advice & when he went back in to the hospital here it was completely gone. It totally baffled doctors here & they insisted on knowing what he had done for this to happen.

Supposedly this doctor was practicing here in the states & once it was found out he was sent back to Mexico & cannot practice medicine in the states anymore. Her grandpa told me all he did was get on a very strict diet including some food very hard to find in the states or thats just not available here (he brought some foods back into the states with him). So all he changed was his diet & took some herbs for about 2 months total & it was gone.

Some might call BS on this & even I would but I seen it happen first hand. This is a 100% true story. Since then I have heard of others leaving the country to seek cancer treatments elsewhere.

This story is totally believable.

Unfortunately, money is the root of all evil and there's a LOT more profit in "treatment" rather than cures.

That's a whole other discussion though, so lets get back on topic to show respect to the OP and his story.

She went to Texas, Katy area I believe, for some alternative cancer treatment at a "bruzinksi clinic".. IT looked promising, but after 3 weeks of coming back to MN it took a turn for the worse and nothing was working.

Ill post this here, why not. We have had several fund raisers for her throughout her ordeal to try and help with some of the bills. You can imagine how a surgery, 12 weeks of chemo, then 6 weeks at a clinic in Texas that the Insurance would not pay for so that was out of pocket, then the ~2 months of in and out of the hospital adds up then some hospice care..

Here is a link that was set up months ago

My condolences sir.

I am also 32 and have been fighting cancer for a few years now. I'm currently in the hospital for cancer related hip replacement. I have a little boy and it kills me to see him watch me deal with this.

It sounds like you made her last days (well, several days/months/years) very enjoyable and for that you should take comfort in that. As someone who can relate to her struggle, I feel like I can speak on this. Know that her life was better because of you, and keep her memory alive with the pictures and stories you have.

Again, my sympathies. I'm not a religious man so I won't comment on the afterlife and such, I respect whatever you believe, but I will say that wherever she is, is better than suffering with the cancer.

I had to shut off the video with about a minute to go last night because I almost started crying and don't even know you or her. I told the story in the barber shop today and every guy in there had a heavy heart. I can't even imagine the pain, very pretty girl looked like she loved life & you. This is why I hate sayings like "everything happens for a reason". That's total BS. No good person should die that young. It actually pisses me off.

I'm sure my words aren't helping, nothing can. But thanks for posting up, we need things like this sometimes to put life in perspective.

May she R.I.P.

Most difficult thread I've ever read on this site.

I watched the video last night and found myself with lump in throat and fighting tears as well...I made it to the end but it wasn't easy...the tears won out.

I have never commented on anything of this sort but this one really, really got to me. It reminds one of what is important, and while I do not know either of you, my heart was just breaking watching it. My sincerest condolences to you and those touched by this.

Very sad. Be strong. I recently lost an uncle, and last month a coworker of mine discovered he had lung cancer which has now spread to his brain. He has been a smoker his whole life. He's only maybe 50. :(

Be strong and keep your head up man. If you ever need anything I think everyone would be willing to help you out. I watched that video and it was very touching. Brought a tear to my eyes. I couldn't imagine having to go through all this.

I lost both my parents to cancer, and my sister is a survivor as of this day. Everyone's pain is unique but I understand what you're going through. Keep the good memories alive and stay strong...

Sorry to hear this dude. My grandma has had cancer for the past six or seven years. She is in her last year so the doctor says. I'm very close to her so I know how you feel to an extent. My prayers are with you.

Sad.. Just deleted her log in spot on my lap top. :-( I wanted to leave it but I was sad every time I was logging on seeing it.

So sorry to hear about your loss. It's so sad when I hear of anyone having cancer, but when someone so young passes from it, then it is that much harder on family and friends, and honestly puts life in perspective as to how precious it is. We'll be praying for comfort and strength for all of you.

I hate to read stuff like this. What sucks even more is this kind of stuff happens every day. Cancer SUCKS.

I'm sorry to hear man. You're in my prayers.

So, I have this old broke water thingy that is hung up on the garage wall next to where I made the little rose garden for Raquel. I planted one sunflower seed in it before she died. It started growing as you can see in the picture, but look what else decided to come lay next to it. Thought it was cool and thought of Raquel.

I'm sorry to hear this. I hope she is at peace and happy.

I lost my Grandmother to breast cancer and Godfather to Lymphatic cancer. It sucks. There's no way to describe it.

People enter your life and you are better for having them in your life. Honor her memory in a positive way, it's what those we love deserve.

Take care bro, I hope you can go on to enjoy life as your girl would have wanted you to.

Ran the race today.. It felt good but was sad to see all the "in memory" tags all over. Im no runner, I smoked for 17 years and stopped when I met Raquel. But, I ended up making it in the top 1000 out of 7,500 people though, felt good. Running the colon cancer run, which i what she died from, next Sunday.

Im the taller dude.

wow, sorry, I don't know what to say.

Maybe organize a race in her memory, proceeds going to colon cancer research.
I suck at giving advice, once again, I'm sorry man.

well.. today was the colon cancer race so i was pretty pumped and emotional at the same time.

Im no runner and pushed it the whole way, came in at 26:07, and 242nd out of 1162 people. This coarse sucked, it was either up hill or down hill, but I knew she was watching me, and giving me some strength. . R.I.P sweetheart.

I wish there was somthing to say that wasnt already said many times over. The pic with the dove is just too much man, she is definetly watching down on you (like a guardian angle)..her suffering is over and thats the good thing.

Cherish the memories, the good times and be happy for the time spent with each other.

RIP Raquel Petrowski
