So my mum lost her battle with pancreatic cancer at 1.44am today, surrounded by her four kids. I am reeling from it. She was ony diagnosed with the cancer in January and 4 months later she is gone. Mum was just tired when we visited her yesterday morning. But then got the call from the hospital at 9pm that her blood pressure had fallen and the end could be coming.
Just feel like there was no time to really come to terms with the cancer and while we knew it was terminal still not quite prepared for how fast the end came. Now I have lost both parents to cancer within 6 years of each other.
We are trying to console ourselves that she went before the cancer progressed and got any worse and she is no longer in pain and reunited with Dad.
Please accept our condolences at this sad time for your family. I'm sure that with her four children there with her, your mum felt very loved. Do take care of yourself and each other and please let us know at Cancer Council if we can support you further.
Thinking of you,
