cwe, look up warrior in the dictionary and you will see 'melanie giglia'


near the end of 2012 mel became an imperative part of cwe when facing a second brain surgery. her last seizure (complex partial) was april 23, 2013, six days before surg.
.......now, as of 12:01am our beloved member 2ndchances is officially ONE YEAR SEIZURE FREE

my mel, you are not only a warrior, you're an advocate and mentor, friend and confidante, and pure woman. you are a pillar of strength and i'm honoured to have you in my life.

counting by days and months is no longer, you did it girl

Congratulation MEL, you had to be strong not once but twice. You deserve the best there is and qtowngirl as well. I think qtowngirl has said it all and told you what you mean to one and all.

MEL AND well done.

WOW, you're all making me If not for this site, and the amazing people I've met because of my stubborn brain, who knows where I'd be. So a big thank you to all of you, and my qtown, a special thank you to you for the very kind words, and post! I didn't leave your card out of my sight after finding it last night, and rolled over in bed to read it first thing this morning after a very restless sleep!



to you all!!

love you mel... and a glass of 'shot in the dark' cab/shiraz tonight in your honour as the bottle states:

'life has its ups and downs. it can be both brutal and beautiful. you can hole yourself away to avoid life's pain, but then the beauty seldom finds its way in. it's only when you attempt to go where you cannot go, or do what you cannot do, that you can achieve what you are truly capable of doing. sure, you might tumble, you might fall. so what? take a chance. go way out on the limb. dare to try - even if it's just a shot in the dark.'
