(Tammy in 1996)
In a note posted to her Web site,
Tammy Faye Messner said doctors have stopped
her cancer treatment and she only weighs 65 pounds.
Messner, who lives in Matthews, was diagnosed
with colon cancer in 1996. Three years ago, in 2004,
she said she had lung cancer. In a December appearance on
"Larry King Live," Messner said the cancer had spread
from her colon to other parts of her body.

"The doctors have stopped trying to treat the cancer and so
now it's up to God and my faith," according
to the note, dated Tuesday, on
"And that's enough! But please continue to pray for the
pain and sick stomach."
In the letter, Messner also thanks her friends and fans for
the "tables full of cards, and beautiful little gifts laying everywhere"
and says that many have been helping to write thank you
notes as she has "been on so much medication."
"To those of you who are suffering as I.....
don't give up !!
Make up your mind you're going to LIVE !!
That is NOT EASY! The path gets so long.
I look at young people and wish with all my heart for just
one day of feeling great. You see,
God gives out his promises, they do not lie, they do not fail.
We do not have to BEG him for them, they are FREE!
You CAN make it!"
Love, Tammy Faye
