Tomorrow is Mothers day and my brother and his family are coming for dinner along with the rest of my family. I almost had a panic attack that he may not come as I fear that it may be the last Mothers day we share. I feel guilty even thinking this as I am trying to stay strong with the belief that he will overcome this disease and he will be the miracle. Fear and Hope both compete for the front position in my mind. I hope with all my heart that my brother and I have many more years together but I fear that we will not. My big brother is not just your average Jo Blow, he is a larger than life presence in our family. He fills a room, he makes a party, he is the one the kids look to for fun. So, tomorrow we will make another happy memory that we can cherish and we will be grateful that we are all together as a family ( with the exception of my oldest brother who lives in WA). I hope my darling sister in law also get through another day where she too may wonder if it will be her last Mothers Day with her husband. My sister in law is a pillar of strength and an inspiration to me!. I hope everyone battling cancer and their families have a wonderful Mothers Day!!.

To willo04 and teach - lovely sentiments from you both. I am not a mother- I am an aunt - I have enormous respect for mothers and for what you have to do and put up with and especially all the mums with cancer. I wish you all a very Happy Mothers Day and I hope you are able to defeat this disgusting disease very soon.

Hi Willo04, I hope your family has a wonderful dinner together. Your love, care and support for your brother and sister-in-law is clearly evident. Creating an opportunity for making cherished memories is a wonderful gift to them and your family as a whole. Well done and keep up the good work. Happy Mother's Day! Kind regards, Mrs Elton PS, I am in Perth WA, and it is a beautiful day here, so if that is where your eldest brother is, he has a lovely day of sunshine.
