The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Lorraine's Latest

I spoke with my mom this morning, and she is doing OK. Her blood counts remain very low, so she is still not able to be out in public. It is hard not being able to see her friends, and take part in the things she enjoys. She also feels low on energy, and not many foods sound appealing. Regarding chemotherapy, she is in a "wait and see" mode regarding her blood levels and if they will "recover" this week. The medical care she is getting in her hometown is not as proactive as we would like, nor is it the outstanding care we became used to here at Longmont United Hospital. I will keep you posted as we learn more, and again, thank you for your continued prayers and support.

Hi Lorraine and Denise,
I'm so sorry that the recovery process is slow. I know it must indeed be hard for "social Lorraine" to be virtually quarantined!! My thoughts are with you both as Lorraine returns to her energetic self!!
