After receiving the request for their point of view, I emailed them to ask them to write a statement. We have close relationships even if we dont get to see each other as often as we would like. We speak on the phone and make the most of family time together when we can get it in. I know that for each of them their biggest frustration is that they cannot be here to help out. I know that when I talk to them they feel sad and helpless because they do not like hearing that I suffer.

I am handing my sister's illness just ok. It is heart breaking to know that I can talk to you on the phone but there really isnt anything I can do to help or make you feel better. I pray for you and your family everyday and try to keep up the faith that everything will work out all right. I hope this helps you for your blog. I love you, take care. Tracey
Scott had this to say: I had a lot of mixed emotions when I found out that my sister has cancer. I feel very overwhelmed because there is so much I want to do and now it feels like I might not have the luxury of time to accomplish everything. I am lucky to have such a hardworking and generous sister to admire and from whom I gain wisdom. I find myself wishing that I had listened more in the past. I love you. Scott
