Cancer the fight of our life

My name is Clarissa and I’m 35,
I’m a mother of two girls on the autistic spectrum one is 12 and the other is 4 nearly.
On 6th June my heart broke eternally when my mum lost her battle to GBM
we were told 12th February 2018 operated on
and gone through 6 weeks of intensive radiotherapy treatment and chemo pills.
She had a funny turn on 10th May and rushed to the hospital
where we were told that the tumour not only grew but spread
and they were sorry nothing more can be done.
myself and my sister (who also has a brain tumour) broke down screaming.
See my sister was 13 when a tumour came to her, there was funding for ‘Chloe’s Dream’.
Not only did my sister have a tumour but my mum was ill with cervical cancer.

Chloe was given 6 weeks if that to live.. (she wasn’t told this) she is now almost 25
Both Mum and Chloe hold the gene for this cancer.

The professionals don’t know what they are doing now as Chloe has beaten all the odds.
This is why we were cocky with Mum we thought she’s done it 5 times this will be a breeze
I knew in my heart this wasn’t the case and I’ve been grieving for a long time now!
I’m still waiting to wake up from this nightmare, which I know will never happen
I often wonder how my mum got by and carried on when her mum my aged 34 died and she was 17-years-old and newly married.
She always said “everything happens for a reason” and to “keep positive keep the smiles, someone is always in a working position then you”!
But now I feel like I’m lost my best friend, my rock, the one person I see and text out of my family has gone.
I’ll never be the same again I can’t see how I can  go on in that positive mentality and keep doing what I have been
on the 6th June 2018, a piece of my heart left me and will never return.
until we meet again mum I love you unconditionally
