My mother passed away the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday has a new meaning to me now. My mom was diagosed with renal cancer in March 2008 and had surgery to remove her kidney, spleen and part of her pancreas. After undergoing surgery she went thru radiation and chemotherapy. September 2008 she had a follow-up and was then told the cancer spread to her liver and lungs. She was admitted to undergo a drastic form of treatment called IL2. This treatment required her to be hospitalized for this type of chemo. She then went into a coma and we were called since my brothers and I live in other states. She did come out of the coma and was sent home with hospice. Well her battle ended on November 28, 2008.
Above is the card that I made that I sent to everyone that showered my family and I with gifts of love, time, and money. This card was inspired from one of my favorite blogs Amazing Paper Grace.
