DD, Aged 17

    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...

    This time the doctors are unable to operate. He has already had 6 sessions of chemo and is having another 6 sessions. I cannot help feeling I may lose 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...

I keep telling myself everyday we will get through this...

My mum was diagnosed with Cancer three weeks ago. When she told me I felt like I had gone from a number 4 to a number 9 on a scale of pain that I was feeling. I literally felt like I just died inside.

She is having surgery on Monday and is going to have chemotherapy and also radiotherapy. I keep telling myself everyday we will get through this but I also thought that all we get is rubbish... I'm always having a hard time in school and it's just getting worse.

But me and my mum will get through this, she has mine and my brothers help. She is also a single parent which makes things harder but as I said we will get through this. Come and follow us on our journey.
