    Loren and Susie,
    Great to see you guys and the wonderful cast of Fox 5! I have seen you out and about in Encinitas over the years… Your diagnosis brings you into my heart. I want to share this amazing book by UCSD Professor Ben Williams who survived his GBM brain tumor..
    We met him 4 days after my moms surgery and he and this book helped us thru the next two years. My mom was a marine biologist at Scripps. Thank you for sharing your life with us!

    Loren, Great interview- so good to see you & Susie- thumbs up to Fox 5, my new favorite station- Saw you years ago doing the weather from La Mesa Blvd. and I yelled out of the window “Loren, you’re my favorite weatherman!” I meant that then, and you still are. You’re a true class act who continues to inspire all of us. Sending you and your family love and hugs.

  5. Thinking of you and wishing you well Loren… You have always been my favorite newscaster and I can’t wait to see you feeling better and on my TV set again 🙂

    Great interview Loren! Continue to fight the good fight! Your family and San Diego are all praying for you.

    Hey Loren,
    I went to LCC with your son what seems like ages ago. If it’s any help, in my time away from San Diego, I was introduced to a man in Dallas that survived a malignant brain tumor named Matt Chandler. He is a smart and powerful speaker on faith (if that suits your fancy) and has a raw/honest perspective on what you’re going thru. I am shocked at the news of your diagnosis but know you are just the man to beat this. You are certainly in my prayers.

    I too am a fan of cobalt blue! I think it started with my grandmother’s covered candy dish. And today I can’t live without it — it’s the best color in the world!
    Enjoyed seeing you and Susie today. You’re looking great and of course she it too.
    Love to you,
    Pat and Don

  12. Nora Hileman says:

    I was wondering why I haven’t seen you on the air. Now, I know. Many years ago you were working at Channel 8 and reported from Costa Rica {drinking Coca-Cola out of a sandwich bag. I thought one day I will go there, I did travel there in 1995 with my boyfriend , who has now been my Husband for almost 17 years.

    Best of everything.

  13. Catherine says:

    I can think of no other News Station in San Diego that would allow enough time for such a beautiful outpouring of authentic support for one of their family members, Loren! I truly appreciate this as a San Diego native. Fox 5 has certainly shown where their heart is, and San Diego is richer for it. I only found out about your cancer a few weeks after my diagnosis. I have just finished up 4 months of chemotherapy. Next… surgery, radiation, reconstruction…. too overwhelming. I really must live each day one day at a time. Like you Loren,my family and my work family is precious and loyal, walking through this with me. I also have excellent insurance. Yet one thing above all is an amazing sense of peace that comes from my faith in God. This season of life for me is one I never expected, yet the “silver linings” appear daily. Your journey has intersected with mine, and I treasure your posts!

  16. Kathy McChesney says:

    You’ve always been the sunny spirit of San Diego to me. Thank you for continuing to share your light as your personal journey takes such unexpected twists and turns. And thank you most of all for the straight talk – your strength and courage are a gift to us all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your beautiful family. Good to learn how the cobalt blue got started – I assumed it was part of your medical treatment – I’m glad it’s just something you chose to do because you love it. It’s a great color on you!

    Walter and I were delighted to accidentally catch your interview with Kathleen Bade this morning as we were waiting to leave for the “zapping palace”. It was so heartwarming to see the feedback from your co-workers. The love and respect was overflowing. It was very brave of you and Susie to do the interview at this juncture, and it went beautifully. Walter passed along what we had seen to the great crew at radiation headquarters, and they were happy to have the update.
    We took a break last night from medical overload, and experienced a joyful and amazing performance by the Alvin Ailey dance ensemble. We’re trying to do something special each week to keep our spirits revved up. So far so good. We send our best to you and your beautiful family.

  18. Stephanie Howerton says:

    So very heartwarming and inspiriing to see you and Susie in this interview!! You truly have the “family of San Diego” rooting for you and we all hope that you will beat this thing and just know that we love you and are with you every step of the way!! By sharing your journey with us gives us all encouragement that if we are faced with the same thing, that we can get through it all!! Thank you for all that you’re doing!!

  19. Kris Quart says:

    Talk about mixing emotions! I watched the interview smiling, but with tears running down my face. It was so good to see you “live” – you look wonderful despite the hardship you’re going through. Susie,as always, was beautiful and poised. The love you have for each other and your family has always been evident to those of us who know you personally, so I’m glad the “rest of the world” got to witness that today. Hang in there….you have a lot of “cobalt-blue” supporters out here!

    How wonderful to see you and your beautiful wife today! My husband is battling cancer as well. My husband and I have gone thru this journey together and laughed daily It is so wonderful to see you laugh and smile thru your journey. Bless you, keep smiling and laughing!

  22. Loren,
    You don’t know it but we go way back, I remember when you started on News 8 and with all that crew. I knew you were special then and you still are. I wish the best for you and your family and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for you advice on the tangerine tree a few years back.

    Loren, you and Susie are just amazing. I also cried and laughed at the same time. I too have an organic garden thanks to you and I am a vegetarian now. Your strength and love for each other is helping so many people right now just get through the daily grind. I get so excited when I see one of your blogs in my email. Keep it going, and stay positive.

  24. Jackie Owens says:

    Hi Loren. Thank you so much for posting your interview. I had set my VCR but unfortunately it was still on Standard Time, I had forgot to change it and I recorded the news but not your part. I was devastated. Then I got my email and was thrilled to see you had posted your interview. Many thanks, I love your gardening tips and the way you are handling this change in your life. Keep the faith. Jackie

  25. Jim Pilling says:

    I was pleased to view the recent interview of Loren and his wife Suzi on Fox 5. From Eugene, Oregon, where I now live, it was refreshing to see them both. I enjoyed seeing and listening to Loren over the years that I lived in the San Diego area.. Keep thinking positive because there are a lot of supporters in your corner.

  26. jsibusiness says:

    I found myself smiling and having tears running down my face at the same time. What great people you both are. San Diego loves you Loren and Susie looks stunning. You are so missed. Get your butt better and back on the news. Regards, Judy Ito

  27. Margaret Robertson says:

    I saw you today on Fox 5, and I couldn’t help but I did cry a lot of tears. I’ve been watching you for the 27 years I’ve lived here in San Diego, and I truly am heartbroken with the news, I had not heard until today. I’ve seen you out and about in the community many times and I always say, “that’s the garden guy!” I’m going to start a garden. Today I challenged myself to finally get around to what I say I’m going to do. Your interview reminded me how important that is. Be well.

  28. James W. Murphy says:

    Your intrview this morning with Kathleen was so emotional and inspiring..i am still tearing up even 3 hours later. You are the man…you are also an inspiration to everyone who has or loves someone that has cancer. Both my parents passed away from cancer (dad in 2002 and mom in 2010) and I wish I wiuld have had the emotional strentgh you have shown during that time. Good luck to you, Susie and your family (all of San Diego??) may God bless you as you travel through this difficult time in your lives.

  29. Terri Erpelding says:

    Cancer certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. Thank you for sharing your jouney. Many of us aren’t as open with our stories. Seeing you gives us courage.
