Hang In There

I just wanted to write a note to encourage all you parents in this group. I am blessed to say that I do not have a child with cancer. In that regard I have no idea how you feel, but I wanted to let you know that someone in the Cancer project was thinking about you.

I am a cancer survivor. I remember thinking numerous times during my treatment that I was so glad it was me and not my girls. I am extremely proud of fighting cancer...of being a survivor. You parents are much stronger than me.

I have heard and read that the people who walk with us through our cancer journey ar co-survivors. I have no doubt when you look at your precious child and see them suffering it is much harder to be the co-survivor than it would be to be the one with the illness.

You people have my UTMOST respect.

Thank you. I hope my daughter can one day say the same as you, and be a cancer survivor.

ThanksColorMeReal, it really helps to connect with someone who "knows" What I'm saying. Your my 1st.

I understand. My mom moved in with us while I was in treatment. We cry everytime we leave too. I hate that she lives so far away as well. I hope that your daughter continues to be in remission. Once you have had cancer I think the possibility of its nasty return is always in the corner of your mind., I am sure it is the same when it is your precious child that has had this.

Thanks for sharing and for the support your offering. We are Blessed my daughter is in remission, but maybe because I'm her Mom, I just can't let go of the fear. She lives halfway accross the country and we see each other as much as possible, but everytime we need to part again, I can't stop crying.

My son marcus is a cancer survivor...2 bone marrow transplants.. i am still in awe of him.. he is my hero.. but......it changed everything. My love for him is solid but my marriage was strained... it took so long and he continued with life (my husband) can't blame him... I was busy as a nurse with our son...now I am trying to rebuild... it is ... hard..very hard.
