Hi, my own children just went through cancer with me and my daughter was 12 at the time and son 14. Its so hard even for me as a parent to have to face the fact I have cancer and they had to go through it with me. The support and love they gave me was so wonderful and got me thru all the bad times. If you would like to e-mail my daughter whos 14 now and find out how she coped please e-mail me and I will get to her.

Dear Lns,
I know how you feel, my wife was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and now she is about to finish up with chemo next month. It's going to be a rollercoaster, kiddo, no doubt about that. My wife and I are still on that ride hanging on for dear life.

I found comfort in the words and hugs from friends. At first, it was really hard for me to talk about it without breaking down in tears because it was so overwhelming. I was scared all the time and she is always in my thoughts. I kept wondering if this would be our last birthdays we would share, our last anniversary, our last Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year, etc.. The important thing is to be there for your mom...to listen to her when she feels like talkin', or to just sit and be around so she's not alone, and to hug her---lots of hugs, hug just for the sake of hugging. You two need each other right now. She needs you as a daughter and a friend. You both need to know that you are not alone, and in the midst of all the fear and confusion you have each other. It's okay to be afraid--at least you are facing the fear, and that takes character and inner strength. Never lose hope that your mom will make it through this...you guys are a team, and you can make it through this crisis. Keep posting here if there's no other place you feel you can turn just to talk about your feelings. I wish I had found this place sooner.

Good luck to you both and our prayers are with you--hang in there, Lns.

Hey Girl,

I just found out my mom has stage 4 cervical cancer. She has six children who adore her and 6 grandbabies. Life, without a doubt, will never be the same. Just be strong, count on your friends and family. Love her every moment you can.
