My mother passed away in March this year after a fourteen month battle with cancer of the oesophagus. I also lost my grandmother (my mothers mum) 8 years ago after an eight week battle with cancer.
I was with my mother at our home when she passed and still struggle with the concept that I will never see her beautiful smiling face.
Nothing can prepare us for the passing of a loved one and there is no manual on how to cope afterwards.
Would be happy to hear from anyone who has lost a loved one.
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.
