January 19, 2017 I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. My mom was there with me in the room when they told me that I had cancer and since that day she’s never left my side. Many don’t realize how much hard work goes into caring for someone with cancer while also trying to take care of yourself.
The strength, faith, bravery, and courage that my mom has displayed is just miraculous. There was just no way for me to pick one word so I had to just simply create a key that said CAREGIVER! That word alone describes and entails so much that it’s unbelievable. I’ve never met someone as strong as mom. Sleepless nights watching me, caring for me as a nurse would, continuing to work to provide for the home, and just simply being a loving mother just shows how amazing and strong one can be.
I honestly don’t know where I would be without her! She’s my best friend, my angel, MY CAREGIVER!
