MY EXPERIENCE: My mother passed away 2 years ago from pancreatic cancer. She passed away on the 25th September 2015. She was first diagnosed with cancer on September 2014. As both my brother and I studied abroad, we found it very difficult to be away from home especially when we know that my mother is terminally ill and need our support undergoing chemotherapy and battling her illness. It was definitely an emotional roller coaster for all of us in the family being by her side fighting this illness with her. She was responding well to chemotherapy in the first few months and we were all positive that there might be a chance of recovery. However in June 2015, her cancer cells became active again and it spread to other organs in her body. From then on it felt like our worst night mare for everyone in my family. My mum started to feel pains in her abdomen time after time and in August she suddenly felt breathless (cancer cells spread to her heart) and collapsed and she had to be admitted to the intensive care unit where she was intubated. Words could not describe that moment, we were all terrified to lose my mum right at that instant. She stayed in the intensive care unit for a month unconscious and intubated before she passed on on the 25th September because of heart failure. It was a difficult time for all of us in the family especially me as I am incredibly close to my mum. She was my greatest supporter, my source of hope and strength and when she passed on I just lost all motivation and will to live. It took me until now to be able to fully accept the fact that my mum is in a better and painless place now.
