I want to start off by thanking you for everything that you have done for me. I know that this past year wasn’t the easiest, but we both survived your journey back to a healthy you. When you were first diagnosed with breast cancer, I was shell shocked. It totally took me by surprise. No one, especially you deserved this. As I sat on my bedroom floor I cried for hours. I felt horrible because I was suppose to be strong for you at that moment and I couldn’t be.
– And then things got harder … As if that was even possible. The back and forth trips from Florida to Alabama. The countless days and hours at the cancer center. The frequent doctor checkups. The sickness and side effects of the chemo that took a toll on your body. The senseless fights with family because they weren’t willing to help because they had they own life to live. And to this day, I never understood how they could turn you down after all you have done for them. But we made it through everything. All the crying. All the pain. All the “I can’t do this anymore.”
– You fought! And you fought HARD! It all paid off in the end. You Won! I want to thank you for being an awesome mom. For being a true inspiration and example of what strength looks like. You Are A Fighter. A Survivor. But Most Importantly You Are My Mom. I’m so happy you are still around. Love You Much 💜 Your Baby Girl
