    Lost loved one


    My mom was diagnosed with colon cancer in May 2009. They removed her 85 percent of the tumor in her colon. The 15 percent they tried to shrink with radiation and control it from growing with chemo. She always kept a positive attitude with hoping that she could be cured one day.She was not only my mom but my best friend. My moms cancer continued to spread she tried to do the clinical trials but it kept making her sick and the cancer continued to spread. Since they could not do anything else for her they put her into a hospice and I decided to take care of her to the end. She stayed two weeks with me and my family until she lost her battle with cancer on Nov.16, 2011 at 5:41am. This is the most painful experience if have to deal with losing my mother and best friend.
