Anonymous said: hi. You said something about your mother and cancer? I donno why I'm even bothering you-- but I wondered if she had cancer like my mom does. It kinda helps knowing that I'm not alone (maybe?) anyway, sorry if this is personal and upsetting/annoying. thanks.
It’s hugely important to know you’re not alone in this sort of thing!
My mother was diagnosed with leukemia right before I turned 10. Thanks to chemotherapy and a fantastic oncologist (hi Dr. Straley, where ever you may be!), she beat the odds, went into remission, and was with us for another 30+ years. But the chemotherapy did a lot damage her system, and it eventually overtook her.
I wish you and your mother the best.
