Genetics of Breast and Gynecologic Cancers Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in American women. Women in the United States get breast cancer more than any other type of cancer except for skin cancer. Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death in women.
I broke down today as I was driving to the gym just minutes after waving my two young children off at the school gates and kissing them goodbye with a smile bolted to my cheek bones as my throat set on fire and my eyes glazed over to fight back tears.
My Nan spent the final years of her life living on medication to combat the symptoms and side effects of a longterm bad health with pills for treatments and more pills to treat symptoms of the pills she needed daily. My Nan was the most incredibly kind, selfless and caring woman, she filled our days with sunshine, never said a bad word against anyone and would give away her last penny to help others.
I too have passed their unconditional love onto my two children, Millisent 9yrs and Gabriele 4yrs for which Mum was with me at both of my births.
The first when I was a scared single 19yr old bringing my daughter into the world frightfully young, alone and heartbroken. Mum held my hand through my pain, stroked my forehead to keep me calm, cutting the cord when my daughter was born as well as any proud father would have.
My Mum Is My Rock And Inspiration In Life Mum has never been a pushy parent, she never expected anything in return for her endless love and she taught me the importance of hard work and appreciation.
Mum has always been so healthy, so strong and invincible. She never wants people to worry about her because she sees that we all have struggles and problems in life and so she carries her own silently and never complains.
She can either stand up or lay flat on her back, no in-between, no more family meals at the dinner table, no cosy sofa snuggles with the children or trips in the car to go and do the food shop and stop off for a spot of tea and cake.
When I hear her voice on the phone her once vibrant chirpiness is weighted down with the severity of pain and suffering, the sparkle in her beautiful brown eyes now shadowed by her suffering.
Despite being shy as a child I had such a wonderful bond with animals and Mum always allowed me to have pets from rabbits and hamsters to birds and cats.
She gave me that little extra time to understand and accept what was happening and to say goodbye to her and make peace. Hearing that song on the radio earlier took me back to losing my pets, my beloved Nan and the very real possibility of now losing my Mum. Can it be cured?
Will my Mum be ok? As soon as I wiped my eyes with the back of my hand the next flood of tears came, followed by the next and the next. How can a persons life suddenly become so unpredictable in the blink of an eye?
They deserve the innocence and happiness that Mum gave me, not the fear of losing her that consumes me. Cancer is brutal and it has no limits on how many people it touches directly and indirectly.
The surgeon explained that if my Mum should seek treatment for her condition then it would be a long and tough road ahead which would worsen before, if ever, getting better. This would prevent her insides from blocking up and bursting which could result in the cancer cells spreading to the rest of her body and becoming terminal.
She also has to learn how to fit, remove and clean her colostomy bag and wound which is something she will have to live with for the rest of her life as her intestines will never work again. Because of the radiotherapy and chemotherapy Mum will get very sick very quickly as it destroys both the good and bad cells of the body and ruins the immune system so Mum will not only be weaker, frailer and in more pain but more susceptible to getting seriously ill from the slightest of colds, coughs, germs and sneezes.Breast Cancer Awareness Plates Show your support for breast cancer awareness by displaying the Breast Cancer Awareness plates on your vehicle.
