Cancer Stinks!!!

Today's guest post is from my 11 year old daughter. She's a pretty awesome kid and has a big heart. She would give you the shirt off her back if she thought you needed it. Her words are simple, sweet and short, but have tugged at my heart in some pretty big ways. But, I'm glad she wrote this. Parts were hard to read, but at the end of the day I love this kid and believe she knows how much she is loved!

Dear readers, 

When I was told my mom had cancer I was really sad. We were crying, sitting on my mom's bed when she told us the news. After she told us, we got to eat chocolate. The first thing my brother said when we found out was "can I go play Wii now?" {mom's note: he was 5 at the time}

Cancer was very hard on my family but other family and friends helped us. People brought us meals and helped babysit my brother, sister, and me. With a lot of help we got through it but there were a lot of hard times and lots of very sad moments. 

But in the end (even though sometimes it felt like there wouldn't be an end, there was one). It all started to get back to normal then back to bad over and over. My mom even had a surgery the day before Christmas Eve! But not a major one, a small one, and she was back home even better then before and on the same day! 

But I remember when every day she was sleeping in bed. My sister and I would try to help out around the house as much as possible and try to do all our school work without help. Even though it was only a few weeks, sometimes it felt like forever. 

But in the end, it all worked out. I'm really glad I still have my mom. I mean cancer stinks!!! But I'm glad we had help. 

Sometimes when my mom has doctor appointments that are important tests and other stuff like that, sometimes I worry the cancer might come back. I get scared a lot about things like that. But knowing that we have family and friends makes me feel a lot better.

  2. Thanks, Miss M, for sharing this post. It takes courage to show your feelings (especially in written form), and you've done a great job expressing yourself. I think you are a lot like your mom: brave.

    what a wonderful thing for you daughter to write!

  4. What a wonderful guest post! Miss M, you echo what I might have said when I was 14 and my mom had cancer. She spent a lot of time in bed, and I had to help take care of my brother and sisters because I was the oldest. Just like your mom, she got better. Thank you for writing about your feelings!


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
