You should prepare yourself before following this link. I think it is beautiful, raw, and amazing. It will also most likely be tear inducing.
A little backstory, I was connected with Woman’s Day earlier this year. A writer, Jane Bianchi, had a vision. As it was presented, she wanted to have children of mothers with cancer write letters specifically to his/her mother and share a little bit of what cancer is like through the eyes of a child.
I talked to Wylee and agreed to take part in this opportunity. As you know I am very open about my cancer experience and Wylee has always been deeply involved. He has been known to attend doctor’s appointments with me, visit the hospital, and help with at home infusions of antibiotics through my port. He is no stranger to cancer.
If you ask him about my cancer he can tell you more than most adults about cancer. He is amazing. I was so thankful that he agreed to take part in this amazing piece.
I hope that you take the time to read through this amazing article and take a small peek into the minds of these nine children.
Mommy you are strong, fast, tough, brave and cool. I like to give you knuckles and hugs. It is really fun to spend time together and play Legos.
I have learned cancer is bad news. I'm sad you might die. If you die it would just be me and Daddy. I want you to be my only Mommy!
You are strong because you don't let cancer stop you. Whenever you first had cancer you didn't cry you just stayed strong and went with it.
I hope you don't die. If you die I will feel sad and cry. I will miss you. I would make crafts for gravestone.
