Family friend: The cancer's back :( - January 7th 2012, 12:14 PM

We have a family friend who lives two doors away. She may as well be my cousin. She's in our house all the time and we treat her like family. I like her more than my actual cousins/aunts/uncles.

She had a smear last year and they found abnormal cells. They checked up and they were cancerous. They thought they were all removed but they're back she may need chemotherapy


She's only 31 :/

I've been trying not to think about it and been making myself think it's fine but I don't think it is I'm friends to her daughter :/ she's only 13, she has been through enough shit as it is

I'm so sorry to hear about that. Definitely try to be there for her and her daughter if you can. Cancer's a tough thing to go through but having people around her as a support system will definitely help the family through it a bit. I know when my father was going through cancer, it definitely helped to have so many close friends and family members around to help. It's okay to worry and even cry sometimes, it's a hard thing to go through, but try to stay strong.

Wow - it seems bad things happen to good people. I agree, you can kick yourself about it as much as you want - the best thing to do is to understand what is going on, and just be a friend. Sometimes thats all people need - someone to talk to, or someone to just have a normal conversation with. Just be there for them.

I'll keep everyone in my thoughts.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
