I am 30 years old and a new mother and about a month ago I lost my mother to cancer. She had been fighting this disease since her early thirties. It started as breast cancer and she died from ovarian cancer. This disease is so terrible and it has taught me so much about life. I have also learned how unprepared I was to lose my mother. I've always known how sick she was but I guess I just thought she'd keep on beating it. I forgot what she was fighting and just how deadly it was. I thought maybe just maybe she'd be the exception.
