Cancer has touched just about everyone I know in some form or another. I never thought it would touch so close to my heart.
Monday, April 4th, 2011 was the hardest day of my life…it changed everything and every thought I have about life. It was the day I had to tell my 12 year old son he has cancer.
The rollercoaster of emotions since that day has been non-stop. I knew I would have to remain strong for him and not frighten him anymore. I would have to keep my feelings and emotions inside. I knew it wasn’t going to be healthy for my frame of mind and I have to get them out…somehow.
I decided to put my thoughts, emotions, and feelings down on paper. I was keeping a chronicle to capture the” in the moment” thoughts I have had throughout the year since my son’s diagnosis of Stage 4 Large B Cell Lymphoma of the bone.
It hasn’t been easy…there have been a lot of tears, uncertainty, anger, laughs, love, and happiness as I write. In all honesty, I never thought to share my thoughts with the world…until I realized how much it got me through the bad, good, and great times.
