    When people would talk they didn't know what to say which was understandable.  more...


    Mimi - 15 years old

    I lost myself doing stupid things, angry and sad and depressed at everything. I ended up failing my classes, not caring about school, and getting into fights.  more...


    Chelsea - 14 years old

    I stuck my head round the door in the room mum was in, and she looked really ill. I couldn't understand what was happening - one minute my mum was fine and the next she was ill.  more...


    Clair - aged 14

    Something I wish is I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him!  more...

    I have been staying with my dad because my mom doesn't want me around when she is sick, which is all the time. My dad works at night so I spend a lot of time alone since I'm not with my mom. I'm afraid she is going to die and I'll blame myself for not being there more. more...

    She has been so strong about this and is keen to put it all behind her.  more...

Alphawolf42 - 17 years old

I try my hardest to care for her and spend time with her because I don't know how long she's got.

In the space of 3 years i've lost three family members to cancer.
My Uncle, Aunty and Step Aunty. I lost my uncle in 2014 and my aunty.

By 2016 my mum was diagnosed with cancer and my Step Aunty died of cancer. I'm still grieving over my Uncle, Aunty and Step Aunty. It's not easy to do. Because my mum has her good days and her bad days. I try my hardest to care for her and spend time with her because i don't know how long she's got.
