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 sux.
