My mother, Helen died in my arms after her 2nd bout with cancer. Before she passed she turned to me and said, “I love you and I’m okay. Dave, you have enough to worry about, don’t worry about me.” She then looked to the other side of her bed and said, “Ralph (her late husband), I told you, I’m on my way now.”
Then she smiled at me. She soon slipped unconscious until she passed comfortably.
Helen’s husband- the love of her life, passed away 13 years prior to the date and 6 hours prior to the time of her death.
It steals lives.
Battle as hard as you can, while perfecting as much quality of life as your can, but enjoy those few moments of mercy regardless of the final outcome!
Lesson learned by the sole survivor of a family of 4 taken by Cancer.
