Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

I lost my mom to stage 4 adenocarcinoma lung cancer with metastases to bone lymph nodes and brain. She had a cold in December that never went away. Valentine's day after a chest X-Ray she was told she :( 1 month to 1 year. Palliative care only option not curable. I was her caregiver. She had her last bday she was 60. May 30 she m passed away at home. I'm still lost ... radiation for two weeks not quality of life in my eyes. Hospice care ( handing a paper bag of end of life medication to the caregiver) I was not prepared mentally for this.

Does it ever get better? I miss my dad so much, it has been 5 months. My daughter will never even remember meeting him. It seems like cancer is EVERYWHERE.

Hi Morgan,

Babe J has regained use of her paws, I prayed so hard and I think he answered my prayers. If anything happens to her it is the end of my life/

Oh no, Linda, not Babie J?  I am so sorry.  It's like life just wants to  keep throwing things at us just to see our breaking point.  I am constantly watching my life just shrink down.  All I want to do is staying bed and sleep.

Don't care if I die, I have nothing to live for since losing my Husband 5/5/13 and my dog having brain cancer. What purpose is there to life.

My daughter is in med school and is currently doing a clinical rotation in Oncology.  Cancer is a terrible disease. She said she sees all stages of cancer and how it is affecting people.  Most of the patients she sees are smokers or heavy drinkers or obese.    My husband passed from brain cancer.  He was diagnosed and passed within 20 days.  He had liver disease from alcohol, he was a very heavy smoker, but I don't care how badly someone treats their own body, no one deserves to die this way.  Since his death I have decided to take charge of my life.  I eat better, exercise and I feel I'm doing it for him.   I seem to have a different outlook on life and it helps me deal with the grief of losing him.  I find I sleep better.  There is no way to ever know if someone is going to get cancer, or just die suddenly but I know he would want me to embrace every day and that's what doing.....some of the time

I agree with your Mom, cancer is the devil.
