THE MARG'S JOURNEY WEBSITE
Click here to return to the main webpage for Marg's Journey.
Before and after Marg passed away on 19 June 2001 a number of people wrote to say that they had been following her web-diary very closely. They did so for a variety of reasons - someone near and dear to them had been diagnosed with a brain tumour and they wanted to obtain an idea of what was up ahead ... a relative had passed away from a similar illness and reading Marg's Journey helped them to come to terms with that episode ... and so on. A College student even used the diary (with our permission) as material for an assignment she undertook on brain tumours. The reasons were many and varied.
I often felt that their experiences might help other people. I have a "Guestbook" on the website but it is limited to 50 words or three lines and that is scarcely sufficient for people to say 'hello' and 'goodbye'. I am hoping that this Readers' Forum will provide a better opportunity for people to contribute and communicate. Those who have a a longer story to tell are welcome to contact me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will consider converting their posting to a webpage and uploading it to the site.*
Meanwhile, you are welcome to click where it says "Click to Enter the Forum" and either browse or contribute your own stories or comments.
