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.See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a former student of literature, now disabled esthetician.
About my Loss:
I lost my dearest friend in the world, one of the instructors at my MA program in grad school. We bonded over writing, books, and smoking on the steps on the English building. We didn't see each other for 13 years of our friendship but talked on the phone several times a day. I saw him when he died of a short struggle with cancer he was diagnosed with five months before. He shaped my world no matter how far we were part geographically. David was a born teacher: well-informed, a constant learner, and he read widely and deeply.
Our friendship consisted of more than our teacher-student relationship in the world of facts and fictions. We guided and taught one another about life itself, death and surviving, illness and madness, and how to find sanity, peace, and faith.

Diana, Grief Recovery Coach replied to Diana, Grief Recovery Coach's discussion Are you finding it difficult to eat right?
"Hi Jo, How can I be of help to you.  Do you need guidance on what to eat?  Basically focus on easy to prepare foods as well as easy to digest foods like mashed potatoes, puddings, scrambled eggs, etc.  Thinking about you.  "
