Marie from California

I am the daughter of a wonderful women who has cancer. It has been a very humbling, draining and very emotional journey to be on this road with my mother. She has been so brave yet so vulnerable as well as the most caring person, mother, grandmother I have and will ever know in this whole entire universe. How she does it and manages to not just give up is a gift all in itself. I am and will always be proud to be her daughter and her provider. I am just repaying her for all her love over the years.
