I have read a little about the loss of your mom from your profile, but I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing a little more of your story with me. I am part of a research team at Saint Louis University that is looking at…"
"All I can say, through my own experience of losing my mom last year to cancer is that time does heal. I had just turned 23 before my mom had passed away last July 2011. It does get easier. I understand how you're presently feeling, but things…"
"my mom has been gone since july 2011. i think about her daily, wishing that she was still here. i'm going to be going through some life changing decisions soon, and i wish that she was here to ensure that i'm making the right choices. i…"
Like you, I also lost my mother in the hospital. In the emergency room for that matter. By the sounds of your story, it sounds like your mom went through a lot. I'm a nurse at a hospital, so I have experience with the flashbacks -…"
"I don't think that there's a time limit, I think it all depends on how you're feeling. In my experience, my mom passed away in July and within a few days after her funeral, my aunt put my mom's clothes that were in her suitcase,…"
"My mom was 43 when she passed away from stage 4 lung cancer, with mets. (July 2011) I'm not sure why people tend to think "things happen for a reason," because to this date, I still don't understand this reason. As my mom…"
I also feel like I could have written your story. I'm only 21, and I lost my mom 6 months ago to lung cancer. I'm sure your mom would be proud of you regardless, especially because you've made it this far. I know that each…"
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.See More
My name's Ashlee, I'm 21 and from BC Canada. I lost my beautiful mother on July 9th, 2011 to lung cancer and the complications that follow. For the first few months, it felt surreal. In fact, I felt that my mom was on vacation, and I was just "rooming" with my sister. She's also young, 20 years young. I live with my dad too, but he's a workaholic so he's away most of the time. My mom was a stay at home mom, whom I was extremely close to, but now I feel empty without her. I'm also a nurse on a medical floor. I help a lot of families going through grief, but most of them don't know my pain. Now here I am on this website writing my "About Me" in hopes that I can find someone to connect with, whom I can relate to.
About my Loss:
My mom was 42 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, with mets to liver, and adrenal gland. I remember everything from this day (June 3, 2011) like it was yesterday. My mom fought through 10 treatments of radiation, two chemotherapy and passed away unexpectedly 36 days later. It's the hardest thing I and my family have ever gone through. I miss her presence, her laugh, love, friendship, everything. I hate this.

"Yes Brett. A bit of rough phase but coping up to do things as mentioned by Selv. To do work to earn and other things.
One thing which is driving me is my angel (my 4 months daughter). Her name is Kiana and her smile is my driving force to…"
"Avi, I feel like you are going through a rough time right now. You're not alone. One of the great things about a site like this is that you are a world away but I know who you are and I know that you are missing your mom just as much as I am.…"
"My mom worried about every detail of my life. There are some who would say that is intrusive. I felt that she was just being a mom. I miss that so much. I had the flu last year. I was laying in that bed and all I could hear was silence. My mom would…"
"Good morning Adams. It is 9:40 AM in India and I am at my job and trying to concentrate hard as my Mom always wanted.
I have almost stopped complaining of anything in life now as I have already lost my most precious gift. Now what ever I have…"
"Avi, the fact that you were close enough with your mother to share your negative feelings about your job shows real intimacy, which I think is what loving mothers treasure above all else. So hard accepting that we will not hear that beloved…"
"Even my mother always used to say that live your life fully but I was always complaining on some matters. She used to worry about me the most as I was not stable in my job and used to talk about quitting it often. She always used to say, love your…"

"You know what when my mom could not be resuscitated, her eyes were wide open and looking toward the right towards me as I walked in, she saw me I know it. I shut her eyes. I wanted the hospital staff to leave me alone. They were…"
"SelV, your mom would have had it no other way. She saw you take your first breath. You saw her take her last. I experienced that as well. If I had my way, I would have gone before my mom. Is that selfish of me? Yes. I don't care. Losing mom was…"
"Dear all...the thought "What if I had died due to unforeseen circumstances and my elderly widowed mother had to grief my death?" crossed my mind many times. Knowing my mother, her world (of me and her) would have collapsed and she would…"
