After her passing, it was learned that Colleen's cause of death was indeed cancer... cancer was found in the meninges lining of her brain, cancer at her brain stem and a cancerous lymph node in her chest near her airway.
Colleen Tice, another sister from our online support group, gone too soon.
Excerpt taken for her obituary written by her husband: "She knew she was going to beat this ugly thing. Always telling me "no worries daddy, no worries". Colleen was determined to show her boys that you can survive cancer..."
