When I was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago my kids were young, just 3 and 6. My first thought was "I do NOT have time for this." My second thought was for my kids. If they had to see their mom sick then they were going to see their mom FIGHT! And fight hard! Moms are tough. Moms are FIERCE! So if cancer or any other disease is threatening to leave your kids without their mom....don't fight like a girl, fight like a freaking MOM!
