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.

Michelle, I'm so sorry. I wish that no other parents have to be in this lousy club.

I lost my daughter to AML on 05/21/2009. She worked so hard to beat it and went to Heaven to be with Jesus. She would have been 12 years old on July 22. I miss her so very much. The days are getting so much harder.

I lost my mother to Bial Duct cancer in October 2008. It has been very difficult for the whole family. Cancer is so terrible. No one is immune it seems.

June 3rd 1985 my dad passed away from cancer
June 3rd 1993 my grandma passed away
june 18th 2008 i lost my mom to cancer. June 27th is her birthday.
when my dad died when i was 15 it was just my mom and i.
She was my mom but she also was my best friend.
i feel like someone ripped out my heart.

my husband and i took care of her the 5 months she was sick. And we live in the same house. Its hard for me to go in her bedroom. I get overwhelming sense of sadness.
I dont feel her around me and it scares me. She wrote me letters and put them everywhere in the house and she always put have faith and hope.
but its really hard.
I get told as time goes on it gets easier but I dont feel that way.
i miss her sooo much.

It doesn't seem to get better. Here it is 12:47am and all I can think about is Tracey. I miss her so much it hurts so bad. I really want to see her again and I really want to go back to just before she went into the hospital the last time. I would do so many things different.
