Today is World Cancer Day. 21 years ago August 12, cancer claimed another victim. Cancer didn’t just claim a faceless victim that day. On that day I lost my mom to cancer. She was 51 years old when she died. She seemed so full of life, so full of joy, and lit up my world. Sadly that day cancer doused her light forever and part of me died with her. She didn’t even last a year after the diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma, a cancer that attacks the blood marrow. By the time of diagnosis the disease had attacked her whole skeletal system. There was absolutely nothing that could be done except to endure the pain and wait for death to come.
