Stop the clocks, turn down the sheets
My sister has no more deadlines to meet
Stop the cars in the middle of the street
Stop the world from shuffling its feet
Today, the sun will not show its head
The sun now knows that Deneen is dead
Lay back her head and close her eyes
Now we must say our goodbyes
Time is like a wave, crashing to shore
Of all the sand it takes, it always wants more
But, Deneen has found a way to always cheat time
A younger vision of her will always be mine

Current News About Deneen  

After visiting the Indiana University Medical Center in January 2007, Deneen was
diagnosed with Leptomeningeal Carcinoma (spine lining cancer) which is related to her
previous condition of Carcinomatous Meningitis (brain cancer).  Both describe the
condition where cancer has inhabited the Meninges or lining of the brain and spinal cord.  
Deneen was diagnosed with the Carcinomatous Meningitis a year and three months ago
and was treated with Methotrexate (Chemo) and Radiation.  The cancer cells in her spinal
fluid had reduced to a non-detectable level by August 2006, however despite the
treatments, faith and family support, the cancer has returned.  It now effects her spinal
column and is impairing her nerve function, ability to walk, and capability to care for her
one true love - her daughter.  We need your help in supporting Deneen and her family
during this time of great despair and yet hope for what the future might provide.
