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.

Thank you for your support. This pain is like a heart attack that never goes away

My pain is new to me to. I have never felt this pain before and its hard to go on feeling it. People say time heals all. I dont really agree. I dont think i will ever be healed from this pain

Cancer SUCKS!! I lost my mom 12/30/08, and the PAIN is so bad. I dont go a day without thinking of her. How in the world do people go on without their moms?? She was more then my mom, she was my best friend and I loved her so much. Im soo angry and I dont know how to get over my anger. I have never felt as sad as I do now. I had a stillborn son 3/30/99, that was HORRIBLE...I lost my dad 11/8/02, that was HORRIBLE....nothing compares to the void I feel now without mom.

Debbie, I don't think that the pain ever goes away. It does lessen with time. Nine months isn't very long. People asked me how do you do? I think at first we are so numb we just go through the motions. But the numbness wears off after awhile and we are faced with grief, some of us alone. I'm glad you found this site. I hope it helps you in your grief. God Bless and ((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))

It's been nine months since my mother died of cancer. Everyone keeps saying that time heals, but I think it's getting worse. Now that it's not busy it seems it has all hit me harder. I miss my parents so much it still really hurts.

As we get ready to move on to another month, I just wanted everyone to know that I am thinking of you all. Even though we may not be having the brightest of days, we are here and there is hope. Someday the sun will shine again. The birds will sing. Until then my thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless
