    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...

    Rirrif - 15 years old

    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...

Boo - 16 years old

I don´t understand every detail of her fight or her death, all I know is how much I love her.

Hello, I’m boo and my mum got diagnosed with ovarian cancer a
little over a year ago. The year was a blur but all I can really remember
was that I knew the cancer was aggressive.

She had chemotherapy and got very sick which was then followed by an
operation to remove her ovaries, then more chemo. After all of this she
started looking better, she started to clean the house again and walk the
dogs with me, like she used to.

She got worse again and fluid in her stomach become a bigger issue. She
then started an aggressive chemotherapy treatment once a week.

Last night she got rushed to hospital, her stomach was so painful, I had
never heard her scream like that. We got to the hospital with her and I
was hopeful but after a while of waiting I went to visit her. I had found out that she wasn’t acting herself and she was twitching her eyes and saying “I can’t see you properly” in a slurred voice. Her breathing was awful and she eventually lost consciousness. Her brain was starved of oxygen, I don’t understand every detail of her fight or her death, all I know is how much I love her.

She died this morning at around 2:00 am.
