FUCK YOU, Cancer!

As some of you already know, my mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June ’12 (see an earlier post: mom’s story). She immediately began chemotherapy and had undergone 17 treatments. There were good days and bad days. In the end it didn’t work. Her struggle with this horrible disease and her suffering have ended. She died on November 5, 2013.

I can’t really fully express what I am feeling, but I know many of you understand. Sadness, devastation, fury, frustration, relief, helplessness, resignation, disbelief, emptiness, grief, anger. Right this moment it’s just RAGE. FUCK YOU, Cancer!

    Mogatos, I’m sorry, very very sorry…my heartfelt condolence goes out to you, this shit is just heart wrenching. And the anger will run deep, you’ve lost a lot to this dreadful disease both in your family and in yourself. Wish I could be there to give you a hug and shoulder to cry on, instead I send you a virtual {{{Hug}}} from abroad. ~D

    I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. And the past loss of your sister. I am sorry for their suffering and yours. My heart goes out to you. I have been reading your blog for a few months. My sister sent me a link. It has been helpful to us. We are a few months behind you in reconstruction following PBM. Thank you for all you put in to it. I have recommended it to others. I am BRCA1 positive and my family has also suffered the great loss of too many beloved women. I agree, FUCK YOU CANCER!

    I am so sorry your lost your mama. I lost my grandmother (who raised me) to ovarian cancer too, in 1998 (she was young) and I still feel angry and sad about it. I completely empathize with your story. I will add you to my prayers for inner peace. Once day at a time is how we do it. xoxo
