Grieving for Mother. Part 1

Posted by William on June 7, 2012

“My children are having a difficult time with their lives, and I cannot seem to move on. When does the pain and anger go away?”

My mother was 53 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It seemed unreal to us. She had never smoked or had any of the typical reasons one would associate with breast cancer.

She went through chemotherapy and radiation, while working a 40 to 50 hours a week. I was there when they did a partial mastectomy and removed nine lymph nodes. She was told that three of the nodes were cancerous, but hopefully the chemo and radiation would take care of this. It did not.

However, she went to the doctor for her monthly checkup and blood tests in the beginning of Nov. 1998, and was told that everything was fine. The next day she went on an 11-day cruise that her boss had given her for being such a wonderful person and worker. She was thrilled. When she came home from the cruise, she could barely walk.

Many accidents happen at home or work so it’s very important to become prepared and also to protect your children, family. Buy safe, appropriate and reliable individual first aid kits from a large variety of specialize supplies.
