My Mum Died When I Was 11

My Mum was rushed to hospital for the first time on my 11th birthday (which is in January) and I was devasted. It took weeks for them to find out what was wrong. She had Cancer. Lung Cancer. I didn't know what to do, so I just cried, for ages. She had come home by that time but she was rushed to hospital one month later. I didn't bother saying goodbye. I didn't think I needed to. I got a call the next day and was driven to the hospital where my family was. I was 10 minutes too late. She had already died. Then I started living with my Dad who now has a new girlfriend. I'm 13 now and that day changed my life forever. I'm not coping very well and I feel depressed:(
