My Story is about my My mother-in-law, Tammy
Her cancer was discovered after a few visits to the emergency room for stomach pain. She was originally diagnosed with ulcers, but had a feeling it was something more, so she pushed for more help.
This is My Story
My daughter never got the chance to meet her paternal grandmother, so I make sure to make an extra effort to have her know and visit her remaining grandparents and great grandparents. I make sure she knows how much she would have been loved by her grandma, and that she knows stories and things about her. Just because someone is gone doesnâ€™t mean their love and memories are. Wearing purple on World Pancreatic Cancer day is a way we can honor her love and memory together.
The Impact of Time
Every time I get frustrated, or short on patience with a loved one I stop and remember how lucky I am that I still have them in my life. I have the constant reminder that life can be very short, and it should be lived as I want to live it, not just sit back and wait for â€œthe perfect timeâ€ to do things.
