In memoriam

Helen and children
Helen Ansell and her children
This week I lost a friend, not an old friend. But never the less a friend. Helen Ansell passed away quietly in a drug induced sleep. A young mother with two small children.

Helen I got to know from Hcv forums. Alone ,without a supporting family she was too battle and lose the fight.A quiet young lady, who wasn’t one at the time to have many friends who would support her. She came on line and found the friendship that she needed, someone to talk too and feel that she wasn’t alone and imagining what was happening around and too her. I can honestly say that I have never met someone ,who was always apologising for being sick and feeling that she was intruding, like her. I feel it only shows how lonely and lost she had become. But with all her fears and worries , and her personal struggle with her final illness she was always there to support and say a kind word to any that needed it. A mother till the end ,her greatest worry was for her children, only after sleepless nights and stress did she get to have some time with her babies before it grew to late to let them know how much she loved them. I am the better person for knowing her and will hold her friendship very dear and close to my heart.

I will miss our late night chats and the laughs we shared.
Goodnight Helen may what ever happens to the spirit after death be a pleasant journey and that you will find great joy and love where ever you are.

~ Thank You ~

To all brave hero’s in this world
That fight a silent war to stay alive
Yet still hold out a their hands
In compassion, love and kindness
To the ones that struggle most
Through the journey of bewilderment
Caused by a micro invasion in their life
And the side effects of interferon's
Combined with poisonous ribavirin

Thus to these hero’s in our world
All blessings perhaps should be due
If only because they indeed are
By far our most brightest stars
That guide us safely through the fight
Against our micro enemy hep c
But in any case one thing is sure
We owe such shinning hero’s
A very warm and heartfelt ~ Thank You ~
