my mother just died and of course a piece of me died with her..i'll always have a void in me that can't be filled. at least now i know she's at peace...she had been fighting for almost 9 years and i don't have to be afraid when the phone rings that it will be my dad saying she's back in the emergency room. i'm a 20 year old girl who is an only child. if anyone can relate or at least has some feedback feel free.

My Mom passed away April 26, 2002. She fought lung cancer for only 1 year. I know my Mom is cancer free, healthy, happy and beautiful. But it hurts like HELL now that she's gone. She was my best friend. I've spent hours online trying to find someone or a group to talk to. It feels like I'm all alone in the way that I feel. No one seems to really understand. Email me (dvsp1229@yahoo.com) and we can share our pain. If you want to.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my mom last year on April 24, 2001 to lung cancer that had spread to her brain. She also had breast cancer some time ago, but they caught it in time to get rid of it. It is definitely one of the most difficult things a person can ever go through. Try to take care of yourself now. You are really smart to be reaching out to talk to other people about your loss. I wish I would have done the same. I am not an only child, but I am the only daughter and my brothers did little to help with my mom's care, so I know what it feels like to feel alone going through these types of things. I don't know if you feel the same way, but it seems like no one really understands until they have gone through such a loss. If you (or anyone else) ever want to talk about how things are going or about what kind of cancer your mom had, etc., feel free to email me.

Losing a parent is a very terrible loss, however common it is in the end. Even when I knew that she was going to die, I couldn't imagine a world without Mom in it. And it still feels like a very different place than it did before. And I can't say that she was my best friend; our relationship was much more complicated than that.
Hang in there. And do write to people who've offered to correspond. I would offer to, but I'm 48, and I think someone closer to your own age could be more helpful.

My mom died when I was 4 and now I am 20. I know it's not the same but I just wanted you to know that it does get easier and someone out here does know how you feel.

hi, first time on network, hope I'm doing this right. I'm 31 years old. My mom just passed away from cancer four months ago. I got on this website to find others like me who are in a daze and don't know how to go on without their best friend. But I see that some of you have lost your parents years ago, and are still mourning. Will the hurt ever end?
