CanadianBakin' is leaving us

Recommended Posts

Longtime eG Pastry and Baking friends:

 

Our very own CanadianBakin' is now living her last days. She is losing the battle with breast cancer and is in palliative care. She doesn't have too much longer, unfortunately. 

I am posting a link in regard to donations to her family to help with expenses and to help them after she leaves us. I hope this is not inappropriate to this forum.

Sadly, Annie

I'm so sorry to hear this. I don't know her personally, but after awhile on the forums you get to recognize certain names. Annie, thank you so much for posting.

I recently connected with Tina again on Facebook - we had spent some time chatting via eG when she was first diagnosed.  I recall the fund raiser they held at a restaurant in Vancouver to get her a nanny to help out when she was doing the heavy chemo after her son was born.  I, of course, sent chocolate!  One a day antioxidants I think we called them.  

 

Tina, I'm so glad that you had the opportunity to have the extra years with your family that you did, and that your son was born and you had the time with him that you did.  Just wish that we all weren't being deprived of having you with us for many more years.

I'm really sad to read this. She's an old-timer around here and was so supportive in my early years on the forum. I truly celebrate the joy she  brought me and others in this community.

She was one of my best buds on eG. Mission, BC isn't far from me, and I had always planned on stopping by to see her on my next trip up North. Don't think I'll make it in time.

I'm sorry to hear this... sometimes I wish we were all a little more invincible.

I'm so sorry to hear this.  I hope she is as comfortable as she can be and that she can enjoy all of the time she has left.  Cancer is such a bitch.

I just heard about this and was so saddened.  I hope that Tina knows how much a part of what is good about eG she has been and how much she was appreciated by us.

I didn't know her like most of you guys, but its always a sad day when one of our own on this site, and also a fellow BCer, is hit with this terrible disease.
