Its been a long time since I visited Cancer Connections.
My 'journey' as a carer ended over 2 years ago when my husband passed away. I continue on my journey as a widow and lone mum.
The road has been long and lonely, extremely challenging and I don't wish it on anyone. Yet...........last week another child lost a parent, cancer claimed another victim.
My sister in law's sister passed away after a 6 year battle with cancer. I didn't know her closely, we had met several times at several family occasions and we always spoke. I went to her wedding.
She came to my husband's funeral. On Wednesday I will go to hers.
Knowing that another family has lost a parent, a husband lost his wife, a son lost his mother..............I'm reliving the loss of my husband and the father of our beloved boys.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
