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...

    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...


    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...

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

Zoe - 14 years old

I cry myself to sleep all the time, I wish I could talk to my mum but she's got enough going on.

About 3 years ago i found out my mum has heart disease, bone marrow disease and COPD. My mum is very ill i hate seeing her like it, i wish i could take the pain away, and about 1 month ago i found out my mum has blood cancer. 

I broke down when she told me, the doctors told my mum she will have it for the rest of her life. Her body is getting worse shes now in a wheel chair, shes asleep all the time because her body is so exhausted, i hardly have a relationship with my mum now because she sleeps so much.

I hate seeing her in pain, she has real bad back problems aswell and i hate it when she has her bad days she tell me "im useless i cant do anything". I say "its not your fault you're like this god choose the wrong person". I cry myself to sleep all the time, i wish i could talk to my mum but shes got enough going on. I just wish the doctors or something could cure my mum! Shes my rock and shes been there for me through everything, I love you mum!! xx
