How Do You Cope With Losing Your Mom To Cancer

Never in your life could you ever be prepared to face the reality of losing your mom to cancer. The one woman who you looked up to as the strongest person in your home, becoming struck down by this deadly monster is not quite you are ever prepared for.

Many of us watch our mums suffer with cancer and stand along side with her through her entire suffering. Even through the suffering you watch your mum fight. You realize that its been a never ending struggle against so many things for your mum for as long as you know her.

Flashes of her making so many sacrifices for you and your family hit you square in the eye. You begin to fight along side her. Losing your mom to cancer is definitely not what you have on the cards now that you have witnessed and realized a whole level of understanding of motherhood. You are not ready to let go.

“There are so many mixed emotions that flood you and you are still not ready to let go but you know you have to”

Just when you are scared to the bone about losing your mom to cancer, she goes through even more suffering. You watch her frail body take a beating as the cancer fights back against all the medication. You begin to pray for a peaceful passing over.

Everyday thousands of people experience some of these emotions and find themselves in a place where they cant shake out of it. Losing your mom to cancer is not an ideal way you lose a mother at all. It definitely takes a beating on you. It is very important that you find help to cope with the emotions that flood you during and after the whole cancer fight. The inability to cope with the medical bills is another huge burden that you might be grateful to have help with.

Please contact your local cancer helpline for information on how to provide help for families of people who have been struggling with cancer or lost to cancer.

Here are a few to get you started:

Remember you are not the only person grieved by losing your mom to cancer and if you are going to need help, you have to ask for it.

    People nowadays seek dental treatments for cosmetic
    reasons. Coconut oil is 90% saturated fat but
    that’s no reason to think it is useless on the contrary this is evident in populations living in tropical climates where they eat a
