My mom after 14 years

14 years ago my mom was given. 25% chance to live after surgery taking 3/4 of her liver and gulblader out, because she was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. They to her that there was no cure, but they could try surgery. She went through this for quite sometime and was cancer free for 3 years then it can back they got it again, did radiation and it was gone when she went back after a few years the doctor told her that it spread to her lungs because he did not watch it close enough. Well she went through many year or chemo, radiation and nothing worked. She also tried a trail treatment and that didn't help either. After fighting for her life for 14 years she took her last breath on September 20,2012. She was a survivor but she was a fighter and a miracle. The cancer killed her but I think she gave it a run for its money. I am posting this to maybe help someone who wants to give up, that if you fight there is also a chance you can live a longer life. I miss my m and it gets harder and harder everyday. Don't give up KEEP FIGHTING THE FIGHT.
