Today, my mother would have been 58 years old and my parents would have been married 36 years. We post a variety of personal stories here on Lacuna Loft, focusing on caregivers, survivors, and fighters. My mother is a huge part of my personal story even though she wasn’t able to be here during my cancer diagnosis or treatment. She wasn’t a young adult cancer fighter but she was too young and a cancer fighter all the same…and I was proud to be her caregiver. I think about her everyday and I miss her.
