Resting Day

All Family and Friends,

Rene is having a day of rest today and would like to postpone visits. Please respect her wishes and check back here for when she will be accepting visitors. Please post to this blog as she will see it throughout the day and will get your well wishes and prayers.

No updates from the doctors yet and they are working to get the most complete diagnosis to better prepare treatments.

As always we love you Rene!


  1. Rene! We love you and I want to come visit soon, when you are a bit more up for it. Analise has drawn a few pictures for you and asks to pray for you throughout the day. Jameson wants to give you a car. Just so you know :-) Love you.

  2. Rene,
    We love you and think of you everyday! You are in our prayers, we miss you! You know we are here for you with whatever you need.
    Your ND friends!

  4. Dear Rene, Last night my six year old daughter Hannah and I were praying for you. She asked if your were in the hosbeetal. This is not a spelling error, she sometimes speaks in a beautiful baby voice and I can't tell her to stop. At that very moment her words were pure and heartfelt. Her prayer to Jesus was please make mommy's friend feel better and get out of the hosbeetal. She then asked me if the food was as terrible for you, as it was for me. I laughed and told her I am sure it wasn't.

    PS. We are praying for you and hoping you feel the prayers coming your way. Anna Quinones.

  5. Rene - I am lighting a candle for you and though I am 3000 miles away from you, I know you will sense the the light emanating from its flame to help you sustain an inner calmness as a place of refuge and healing for yourself. We love you - and also know that you have the strength and will power to emerge victorious in this battle. Much love, Auntie Bev and Unkie Art

  6. Rene - we love you dearly and are praying for you and your family. Keep fighting the fight! Sending you many 'virtual' hugs. :-)

  7. Hey Miss Rene,
    We've been thinking that we should be running into you any day...a little Ellen bird called to say she was in town and told us where you were temporarily hanging out.
    Hang in there! Sending loads of prayers and good vibes your way.
    Love, Laura and Donald (gagliasso)

  8. I just heard. And want to share that if anyone has the tenacity and resolve to kick this in the butt, it is Ms Rene. You go girl!
    Hang in there Christopher -
    Love to you both & your families, Peg C

  9. Dear Rene,

    Our whole family is with you as you battle the cancer - all our prayers and very best wishes. You're such a kind, giving person and have really been so good to Steph since she started at Notre Dame. Now it's everyone's time to be good to you.

    We'll come visit as soon as you feel up to it.

    Love, Patty Rauch-Neustadter (Gary, Rachel, Steph, Jeff and Carlos too)

  10. Hi, Rene--Can't stop thinking about you since I heard the news. Please know that we are all pulling for you and you have all our prayers and good wishes. Stay strong and give this all you've got. Now is your time to focus on you.
    Lots of love and prayers--Jan

  11. Grandma Ne-- We're thinking of you every day and of course would not hesitate to drop everything for you and your family.

    Jakey made an especially nice picture of "fireworks" for you at school this week.

    All our love,
    jaimie, james & jake

  12. Rene,
    I hope you can feel the positive energy we are sending you from ND! Fight the good fight and let us know when you are up for a visit. We love you!

  13. Hi Renee,
    It's been a long time since we've talked. I think a couple of Willow Glen Relay's ago. I so loved having you as our staff partner, and you made me so proud when you came the following year to check on us. You are a increible lady. You are in my thoughts and prayers. You fight the fight girl.
    Lots of love,
    Willow Glen Relay for Life
