    when I was 21 I lost my Grandfather

    and this past February I lost my mother. Both of them were taken by lung cancer. I know it hurts and the pain of watching them spiral down is worse. If anyone wants or needs to talk I am here.

    My friends mom, and my good friend,

    just recently passed away of brain cancer. I still can't believe that she's gone. I pass her contact in my phone, and my stomach drops that I can't just text her, go visit her, check in on her. I still remember the day we all found out. It was unreal. I never pictured it to be...

    I Don'T Remember Crying

    Unfortunately, cancer is an equal opportunity

    I have been told that I should talk about what happened. But as I don't have the time with work and everything, I feel it is best just to let it all go on here. It has been a year when I found out that my Grandad had cancer. People say it gets better with time. I found this not...
