Profile Information

About Me:
I am a wife, a mother of two, and a grandmother of three. I love Jesus, my family, hard work and making others happy!
About my Loss:
I lost my dad August 17th 2012. I also recently lost my mom on August 24th 2013. As an only child, I feel so much pain, as we were so close and her battle was an all too short one. My dad had cancer for a much longer period. In all, I have watched my grandma, mom and dad become ravaged and ultimately die from cancer. My mom was my best friend, my confidant and my biggest supporter. There is a piece of me that is missing now that my mom is gone. I am not even 50 and both my parents are gone!
Are You a Service Provider? If Yes, please tell us about your service.
Yes, I cared for my mom along with help from my young adult children. As I was her only child. I reduced my work hours from full time to part time and less to care for my mom, until she passed.

Hi Wendy,

I am part of a research team at Saint Louis University that is conducting a research project about how families communicate about making medical decisions for loved ones at the end-of-life.

I have read a bit about your story with your mom and dad and I'm interested in hearing more of your story. If this is something you would be comfortable with, please email me at cgibso10@slu.edu.

Thanks for the gift.  However do not look at yourself as an orphan.
