The Living Nightmare

My heart sank and I began to choke on sadness. The doctor confirmed our family’s biggest fear. My mom is diagnosed with breast cancer.

As I was driving home from practice I always thought about my mom saying, “You should always tell someone you love them because you never know what could happen.” As a kid you just don’t stop to think about it. You never consider the possibility of something actually happening. It’s not until something drastic that happens that everything you have been told starts flashing through your mind.

The atmosphere in our household has completely changed. We all are closer together. We all come forward with our feelings and talk about our thoughts. We laugh together and we cry together. We all are there for one another to lift each other up when we are down. Things will never be the same with this life changing event but we will not be separated.

I have faith that this sickness will subside. God is the one doctor that can cure all sicknesses that machines cannot fix. My mom is a stubborn mom and already claims that she will not allow this cancer to tell her what to do. She is a fighter and a strong one too but she cannot face it without us there. I love my mom and I hate for things to be this way but all I can do is let God lift up my mom and touch and heal her.

    Ms. Cami Lou your Nana is by your side forever and more. You make us proud of your accomplishments and being one of the smartest teens I know. But you are that because of your Mom and Dad. Your Mom is a very tough Mom. But she expects only the best and you have given her more than that. Stand tall now and know you beliefs in God and he will see us all through this. The journey is rough and long but I will be there for you all. I love you to the moon and back and I mean that statement.
