After all these years, and all the loved ones that I know that have fought Cancer, I still don't know what to say.
My grandmother. My ex BF. And currently, two of my close friends and now my mother. I feel so completely helpless, and so completely incompetent. I try to just make sure that they know how much I love them, and listen as much as I can. Give them validation, support. Put my needs aside for them. And its hard, because, losing my mother is the worst thing I have ever gone through, and I hurt so much, I 'want my mommy'. And for once, it's my turn to be there for her, not the other way around.
And I will say this, I don't know either of you, but in my heart, I care for you just as much as I do those in my life that are struggling with this. I have limitless empathy even if I don't have all the right words. And I'm so sorry that you have to go through this.
