17th Apr 1959 - 5th Feb 2011
In November 2010 my mum got diagnosed with colon cancer. In January 2011 it was discovered that the cancer had spread everywhere, notably to her lungs. Nobody was able to make a prognosis regarding how much longer she had left. Suddenly from one day to the next , she couldn't move . She was able to move into a hospice, having her last wish fulfilled. After a further two weeks, she passed away. Those two weeks were a rollercoaster. Her condition changed up and down. But mostly I could not get my head around how she could die. I simply couldn’t imagine how her body could go from functioning to shutting down. Seeing my mum in pain was horrific . At the time I lived 1000 miles away , I was planning on visiting her when I was next off work, but I never got a my chance to say Goodbye which broke my heart even more . One of the things that struck me was that almost everyone has or will experience the death of a loved one. It had such a monumental impact on me, and I can only assume that it does for a lot of people, too, and so I would like to share my story. Please donate .
