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!
