My mother is my hero. She was diagnosed with GMF in January 2011. The doctors told us that this was a fast growing aggressive tumor but we knew that mom would beat the odds! She fought very hard. By March 2011, she was walking into her radiation treatments! The tumor began to shrink!! We were all so excited and the doctors were amazed!!
We had a trip to Nag's Head planned for August to celebrate my parents 60th anniversary. My mom was so looking forward to this! We stayed in a beautiful house that my sister and brother in law rented. While we were at the beach, mom started having seisures....that was the beginning of the end.
My mom lost her battle on October 8th 2011. Surrounded by most of her grandchildren, we laughed and cried and prayed with her. And just like my sweet caring mom, she waited until we were gone to go see Jesus.
There is not a day or hour or minute that goes by that I don't miss her. Her smile, her laugh, her kindness! I love you Mom!!
