I just saw this. I do not how I have missed it.

My mom died, just  like that. The same. When she was 44. 17 years ago.

Thank you. It is ok, but this journal brought me back so many years, and the story is so very familiar.

This has brought up a lot of the past, and what I went through with a lady friend. She died four years ago.

Life goes on, and I see her daughter frequently. I'm her 'godfather'. She's now 26, a beautiful young woman doing a Master's Degree in Atmospheric Science.

I just made a journal about AGDQ2014 ( a cancer prevention fundraiser )
and I hope people check it out because no one deserved to go through this.

I remember one of the stories with the husband taking pictures of the wife during her cancer.  Or the father taking photos of his daughter that complete the photos with his wife that he took before she died.

Having lost many relatives to cancer and having a brush with it myself, I have to say that, to share the pain and heartache with people on Da is a brave and inspiring thing to do.  Your title said it all - no one would ever choose to go through this yet often we have no choice.  Thank you for sharing this.

Awwww, this is really touching considering one of my friends moms has Brest Cancer (luckily it was found in a early stage) 


She seems like a very wonderful person, it's touching honestly, even to cold hearts knowing that someone out there fought for there lives, and many are and will be.


It makes people think about how lucky they are, and shouldn't take the simplest things and make them not count, because every bit counts
