When people talk about Cancer, they don't really talk about Cancer. They just tell you that they've been diagnosed and they're taking treatments. That's the first stage, the second is usually hair loss from radiation and chemo, and the third is that they've passed. For most people you only get those three stages, but for me I had more. Most people don't understand the full term "Cancer" because most of you haven't lived through it with a loved one. But for those who have, you see the rapid change in health, the weight loss, and how they're constantly tired. The sound of them throwing up all hours of the night is normal because Chemo isn't just killing the cancer, it's killing the cells that are trying to fight with you.
The life gets drained right out of them, but they still put on a smile and tell you everything's okay, that they're getting better and not to worry. At least that's what my mom did right till the end. I've lived through it all, the constant doctor appointments, and new medication every other week, or the new procedures to see if maybe just maybe, one will finally work. My mom was a fighter, for 13 year to be exact. She fought until it took over, but she didn't let it consume her. Missing you more and more everyday mommy ❤ #letstalkcancer #cancerawarness #imissyou
