Well, it's been some time. I found I out Dec 26th, my mother has the same thing. She has the same brain tumors, 2 of them in fact. 1 the size of a golfball and another growing mass the size of a marble. So, I'm strong, but i'm sad. This is my mother, I don't have any brothers or sisters. In the heirarchy of my family, it comes down to me. I have great Aunts and Uncles. I have been down this road and could use a miracle. I'm a young guy age 33, and I'd like to have at least one of my parents. Now, i'm at the point of begging God for an exception to the norm.
I could use a little help from my friends. Your energy, prayers, whatever you want to call it would sure be nice.
thank you folks.
well, that brought me to tears.
im with you every step of the way peep.
i lost my mother to cancer in '99, so i can very much relate to what youre going through, and you will be in my daily prayers.
all the best to you and your mother. i pray you get your miracle, and thank you for humbling me and showing me how petty many of lifes problems can be.
"You stand up proud
You pretend you're strong
In the hope that you can be
Like the ones who've cried
Like the ones who've died
Trying to set the angel in us free..
...when youre waiting, when youre waiting for a miracle"
