Ok so here's the story... When I was about 6 my mom got Breast cancer.... I didn't know what was happening because I was so young... They said she was going to die but she didn't...7 years later the cancer has come back and worse this time. This time they can't fix her...it's spine bone cancer... Right beneath the spine almost impossible to reach...the tumor is growing on the central nervous system killing with every minute of every day...it's super hard to deal with and hard not to think about because it's Mother's Day and I want to make her proud of me and be happy she had a good son and I'm worried she won't notice at all the good things I've been doing and I want her to. She has almost a month now.... I'm really worried and I don't know how to deal with this...help please

Joe. I am sorry to read about your Mother. It is a difficult thing to deal with. I lost my Grandfather to cancer in January. He was going to be 90. We were close and I can understand your pain, but being as young as I think you are, the pain must feel unbearable, but I swear to you it is bearable. That is one of the greatest gifts you can give your mother. More than anything she will want you to get through this as a better person, who is dedicated to living a full, productive and happy life. Mothers Day prayers for you and your Mother.

Sorry to hear about your Mother. I recently discovered that my Aunt has an early stage of breast cancer. In any case I sure your Mother is proud of you. You may just have to sit down and have a good heart to heart to talk with her. Cherish every moment you have with her, memories are wonderful thing you can share with friends and family. It's something you can keep forever, so go make great memories with her. Ask her about anything and everything about her childhood, growing up, adventures, heart break, and more. Show her everthing you've accomplished and learned. You'll grow closer together and you'll be able to keep that forever. I'll be praying for both of you. God Bless.

Like I said to Jeremy. My heart and blessings go out to you and your aunt...thanks for the advice and I think talking to her about her childhood would be a good thing for her heart. Thank you so much.

My Grandfather and I did this as well before he passed. He laughed and was happy thinking about the things he did when he was younger. Great, great advise.

I am so sorry, Joe; my heart breaks for you. My father died in a tragic work accident when I was nine, so I can understand the pain you feel. You must carry on. Your family is going to need you, and you must be there for them. My mother tells me that she would not have lived through the grief without me and my three siblings. The only thing you can do is turn to Christ. He is placing this circumstance in your life for a reason, and most of the time that reason is not clear. You can go two ways: you can allow this experience to affect you for the rest of your life in a negative way, or you can make this experience life-changing for the better. In times of grief, Christ is the only One who can relieve your pain. He can get you through this, but you must trust in Him. The pain will lessen as the time goes by, but you will always be affected. Every time my father's birthday comes, it feels like my heart is being broken again, but the days keep coming; life does not end. You must allow this experience to change you for the better. I would not be the same if my father had not died. My relationship with Christ would not be as strong as it is today, because that experience made me rely on Him all the more. Without Him, I would never have made it through. You will be in my prayers every day. 

God bless you and bring you comfort.

Gosh...I am sorry to hear about your father...and I have been turning to Christianity and Christ as a savior of my pain...I truly cannot find words to say right now...your advice is dear to me and I will not forget you guys or anyone...no one who has helped me through this dark time...your right Ariana...life does go on...but it's always hard to go on with life...

Life does go on, even in the worst of times. Christ will ease your pain; He eased mine. He will never leave your side. Does your mother know Christ?

Wow, this was to comforter one but encourage many who going through a loss of a love one or seeing through an ailment. This blog touch me as I am having a difficult time processing my Grandmother battle pancretic cancer. It came with full force and she is rapidly deteriorating. I know Christ will comforter my family through these days and if it is his will to be heal but the hardest thing is when she looks out the window and says she ready to go home. We may not know the pain they go through but we can give them words of encouragement and laughs to take their minds of the suffering. We may endure pain now but joy will come in
the morning. The peace of God passes all your understanding and find comforter that he has everything in control.

I'm so sorry. I pray for comforting for you. I lost one of my best friends to cancer last year, so i know the pain. She was born with Fanconi Anemia and when she was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia,  they gave her a year to live, 9months later she died. All i can say is tell your mom how much you love her everyday, and enjoy every moment you have left. Ill be keeping you and your family in my prayers

Hello Joe. I wanted to see how you were doing? I lost my Father in July and dropped out of sight for a while taking care of things and I am just getting back onto Workout Trainer and you were one of the first people I thought of. I won't say its been easy for me, but as a strong and resilient person in both body and spirit, I am focused on constant self improvement and betterment of my personal well being. I hope you have been too. Please let us know how you are doing or you can PM me if you want to talk more privately.
