Topic: Not uplifting
I think this is supposed to be our escape section, so I apologize if I'm using it for an unhappy topic. CC is rare and aggressive, and we only joined the group in October when my mother was diagnosed. However, unfortunately today I was again reminded that all cancers are devastating. My aunt fought a long-time battle, but last night passed away after the cancer had spread to her bones and finally her brain. She was a strong, warm, loving woman who was the core of her family. Her husband was in the Navy, so much of raising four children was left to her while he was as sea. She was loved and her passing will leave a gap in so many lives; she positively influenced and loved so many. Only a year ago her husband passed away from colon cancer. She was so strong at his funeral while she was at that time going though treatments and scans. Her kids have been living with their parents’ cancer fights for the last two years. My dream tonight is that we see a cure for all cancers.
