I lost my best friend

Published on October 21, 2019 in Share Your Story

Three years ago my mum was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She was in her 70’s but so healthy. I couldn’t believe it.

She refused her medicine and chemo. She grew worse slowly and it was very painful as she had always been my best friend.

Anyway, I saw a blue spark in the sky and a weird feeling in my stomach of fear then relief. I called the hospital and they said she had just passed away.

I always think about my best friend and how I miss her. There are cures out there. and we should never give up.
