Text from my college son

Updated January 20, 2023 in General

Thought I would share this part of cancer:

Son: mom I love you

Me: best news I got all day

Son: wish I could hug u rn

Me: me too. What’s going on need to talk?

Son: I had to interview someone who’s mom died from breast cancer

Me: I am so sorry for their loss.

Son: I worry momma

Me: I am doing what I should meds are working stable scans I will do whatever I need to be right here

Son: it’s scary not seeing you every day

Me: sends selfie I will send you a pic every day

Son: thanks momma

I have guilt that my child has to live with this fear. This is the true aftermath of cancer. So please don’t ever think cancer is “over”. Every one has trauma after cancer. Family is affected deeply.

    Thank you @lescp I think sometimes we forget how cancer can affect our family for a long time.

    Thanks for sharing, AnnMarie. I had a 6 month check up with the oncologist this morning. Everything still looks good. I texted my kids with the news before I left the parking garage, as I always do. It helps, even now that they're adults, and after so many years.
