In Memory Of My Late Husband

Alfred Thomas, Sr.

May 29, 1951 - June 29, 2014

 We Were Married November 1980

My Husband And I At Our Vow Ceremony

And Wedding Reception

A Month Later December 1980

It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart, at this moment, this website is also dedicated to my husband, on June 29, 2014, died of a terrible and, very, aggressive bladder cancer.

I was still grieving my granddaughter, when my husband was diagnosed with bladder cancer, in early 2013.

God, through prayers, gives us the strength to keep standing, as we go through hard times.

Losing a love one to a terrible disease is, very, devastating and sad.

The rare lymphoma cancer that attacked my granddaughter is like a monster, because it is fierce, very aggressive, very hard to treat, prognosis for survival is poor and by the time a patient starts feeling sick and running a very high fever, it is out of control and acting like a ferocious monster, attacking every organ in the body, one after the other, the bone marrow and the circulatory system.

To make matters worse, this rare lymphoma cancer is also sub-divided into even smaller categories, according to characteristics.

Angelique's lymphoma fell under a very tiny category, where she was about the 24th patient, worldwide, ever diagnosed with the terrible disease, according to the Hematology Oncology team of specialists at MUSC (Medical University Of South Carolina) where she was diagnosed, treated and shortly afterwards, died.

The Emotions - Flowers

Angelique Just Before She Got Sick

Angelique's High School Graduation 2008

And Her baby Serenity Q'Anne With Aunt Tisha

She attended both her junior and senior year proms and graduated from high school in 2008. She wanted to be a Radiology Technician and was attending the local technical college. She had a part-time job, her own car and apartment. She leaves behind family members and friends who loves her dearly and especially a beautiful, 3 year old daughter who looks just like her. Her daughter misses her so much and is always asking "Where is my mommie?" This breaks my heart. She was just starting out, full of life and had wonderful plans for her and her daughter's future.

Ange and her baby, Serenity Q'Anne

Even though an experience such as this is so heartbreaking and sometimes, seems unbearable, we must, through our grief and tears, do the very best that we can to go on and not give up. We continue to pray and look to research, science and doctors for more, better treatments and even cures. After seeing what this disease did to Angelique, I joined Advocacy At The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as an advocate, became a member of The National Organization Of Rare Disorders (NORD) and my family and I have also started a non-profit organization at this website, in memory of Angelique, that will advocate finding a test for early detection, before a person even starts feeling sick, better treatment after diagnosis and hopefully a cure. I am advocating that the specialist giving the diagnosis and prognosis be up front and completely truthful with the family, instead of holding back the complete truth and immediately start experimenting with harsh drugs, which can make the patient's life even shorter and also that the public be educated more on rare lymphoma cancers. We became familiar with this type of cancer only after it touched my family and we lost our love one in death.

So, therefore, in memory of my late granddaughter Angelique Shar'dae Ladson, I dance to help me deal with my grief and sadness. It makes me feel, so, much better. I speak to others about my cancer experience that I, also, dealt with, during 2010, and about being a survivor, before my granddaughter got sick. I speak to others about the terrible lymphoma cancer that my granddaughter fought for (37) days, after being diagnosed, in October 2010. I, also, speak to people about many of my family members that died of various cancers. I speak to individuals and small groups when the subject comes up. When I speak to others, it makes me feel better. Talking about it is like therapy.

I love doing the various slides, line dances and swing dance. I, also, love coaching and consulting others, so far as these dances are concerned. Dance can make a world of difference in our everyday lives, because we experience all kinds of ups, downs, hardships, sorrow, pain and grief.

So, I say to you, “Dance and talk, even if the sickness or death happened recently, a short while back or years ago, and you have been carrying the grief and sadness in your heart". If you, personally, have been dealing with an illness that you were diagnosed with recently or a while back, contact us and tell us about it. I say to you "Dance and talk."

Contact us, even if you put it on paper or email us. Tell us about your grief and sadness experience. Make sure to, also, tell us about your dancing experience. If you created a new slide or line dance or is trying to learn one that you heard about, we are very excited to hear about it. Doing these things means that you are turning your grief and sadness into something positive and on the road to a more rewarding and happier life.
