I was packed and ready to go (Wave 2). This would have been my first conference. My husband had to have surgery on Friday and we found out that he has throat cancer. We are devastated to say the least, and he is not feeling so good. I made the decision to stay home and not attend conference.

I was so looking forward to going; learning new tips; and meeting new people. But my family is first and I can go to conference next year. Am a little bummed about non-refundable registration tho :(

Anyway - to all you powerful people out there - please send some good vibes our way.

I would still contact PC and explain the situation. They might make an exception and refund you.

This is one of the reasons why I couldn't wait to go to conference. You folks are amazing, uplifting and such an inspiration. Thank you SO much.

Patti, give me your full name, etc., and I'll see if I can check in for you and get all your freebies.

My Director has pneumonia and other medical issues (no pun intended), and decided two hours ago she just can't get on that plane. She's having our AD check in for her, just to be sure she gets her freebies.

Also, can you contact someone in your cluster to get surprise packages for you? All they need is your name, address, and debit card number, from what I understand.

I'm so sorry to hear this and I'm praying for your husband. I guess on a positive note at least he didn't find out while you were out of town. I think I would have felt worse if that happend.

Take Care,

I am sorry to hear about your husband. Prayers for you. I am not going either, first time in 4 years, recovery from chemo treatments and knew I couldn't handle it.

I would contact PC home office, a similar situation happened to a clustermate of mine last year and they made an exception!

I LOVE this company, they care so much about our family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.

Yes...call HO...go all the way up the line to the boss if you have to...this is a serious situation and they may make an exception.

I said a prayer for your husband. I pray that God would send healing and use this for his glory. Tell him not to let the enemy defeat him with negative thoughts. Think positive and thank God for his healing...just as though it were already done. God works in mysterious ways. Please, please, let me know if you want to talk. I will be happy to listen...whether by email or phone. I will keep you in my prayers.

I am saying a prayer for your family as well. My father in law is going through treatments for stage 4 throat cancer, so let me know if I can answer any questions for you. He is doing really well .

Patti:

We found out last fall my Dad has a very agressive throat cancer. He's through his treatments and now on "watch" status. Feel free to contact me if you need someone to talk to. It's been a long road for him, but he's doing good all things considered.

Thank you ALL for your thoughts, prayers and wishes. This sight is so amazing - I don't know any of you, but I feel like you are all party of my PChef family.

Lisa & Barb - I will be contacting you I'm sure. We will find out on Thursday what his course of treatment will be.

I will be praying for you guys! My Grandmother just went through the same thing in December. With the Lord's help, and 7 weeks of radiation, she is all better!
