I know how all of you feel, I lost my beautiful full of life mother to a 3 week battle yes 3 weeks with stage 4 lung cancer with maths to her brain. It all started with a little memory loss and a cold we thought, talked her into going to the er and within 2 days we were faced with the unbelieveable truth CANCER. We were given a 2 week to live without radiation. She was so brave never cried in front of us kids. So she came home with me and my sister and we started the radiation. After only 6 treatments she went from 97 lbs to 84 lbs stopped eating and was so weak when she got home from the hospital after the treatments and could only sleep. This all happened within 1 week. This cancer is the most horrible devil I have ever seen in my life, the pain and suffering to the person and their family is so horrible. How this can destroy a person in just weeks it has to be stopped some how, all the research is still not stopping all the people loosing their lives. So after the 6th treatment I said good night to my mother and came to her the next morning to find her taking her last breath , she died that morning two days before her birthday. It has only been a week but seems life a life time, I miss her so much it hurts. Before this she was full of life doing every thing on her own driving 40 miles every weekend to stay with me at my house. I lost my father 23 years ago , so my mother was the one who picked up the pieces and we went on, now she is gone. I dont think this hurt will get better. I wish I had the answers to why we all have to suffer such great loss in our lives? I can only hope to get the support to get through this great loss.
