    Next month (March 17th) will be three whole years since my mom left this world and entered her heavenly home. As it approaches, the feelings from last year resurface, and the whole grieving process seems to start over again. Sometimes I sit and think of what all has happened in the last few years and the tears can't help but flow. My 24th birthday was just last week..and I had a breakdown right before..just missing m...

        Joymac..your post reminds me so much of the way my mom would talk to others about her journey with PC. I feel like God allowed me to read your post for a reason..your screenname has two important names in it..."Joy" which was my mother's name..and "Mac" which was my grandfather's (her father) name. My mom had PC for around 3.5 years. She went into remission once but she won her fight against it on March 17, 2012. I w...

          Tomorrow begins pancreatic cancer awareness month. I was wondering who has lost family members to this disease or may be personally battling it. Feel free to share your stories/comments. This disease took my mom almost three years ago..

            Yes I often have this question come into my mind. I lost my Mom almost 3 years ago (March 17)..I miss her every day..my mom was my heart and soul and life has been totally different since she's been gone. My mom was only 57 when she died and I had just turned 21.. But, I have an assurance from the Lord that I'll see her again one day and I keep holding onto that! She's in my heart!

              It just makes the pain resurface that much more. Not only am I missing my mom, I'm missing my grandmother (her mom) who are passed away 3.5 months before my mom did. Also, my mom's dad who passed away 13 months after my mom did. Our family went through three losses in about 17 months. It's still hard to comprehend sometimes. And to not have any grandparents alive anymore or my mother at the age of 23 is hard. I know ...

                Today while I was out doing a little shopping, I saw someone whose kids my mom taught in preschool. This lady struck up a little conversation and proceeded to ask the question I dread most: "How is your mom?". I cleared my voice and with some hesitation replied that she had passed away a little over two years ago. I did not show how much this bothered me at the time but it really did sting. I know the lady meant noth...

                  With today now officially July 28th, this day represents something very special to me- it's the anniversary of my mother's birth. Unfortunately, she is not here to celebrate it, she is in Heaven..happy, whole, and cancer-free. My mom would turn 60 years old today, and although it has been a little over two years since she passed away..sometimes it still seems so unreal. The good days and bad days come..and I try to b...

                    I am so sorry this is such a hard day for you. That's exactly how I feel about March 17th..it is the anniversary of my mom's death..and the two years she has been gone feels like an eternity, and other times..feels like yesterday. Hold on to the memories you have of your mom..it sounds like you both were very close. I wish my mom had been able to live as long as yours..she was only 57, and will never see me get marri...

                      I am 24 years old- and on March 17, 2012 I had to say goodbye in this life to my mother, who was 57 years old. She intensely battled pancreatic cancer for three and a half years. She fought so hard even up until the very end. There is not a day that goes by, or a minute for that matter that I don't think of her, and my heart aches so badly for her. She was my best friend and I thank God for allowing her to be my mother..He gave me the best of the best and I will forever cherish the memories! I love you forever mom!!
