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...

    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...


    HT - 13 years old

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

Tyler - 13 year old boy

My mum passed away 7 weeks ago and it's been so hard and this song I wrote explains how I think

It's been 7 weeks since I saw you walk away from my life,

I didn't know the way and I didn't have the words to speak.

But all I knew was Mummys gone, and she's not coming home, ever again.

We're never gonna find another mother like you


Oh Mummy, im crying

This is because of cancer that you’re gone

I see you in my dreams at night

Whatever did I do? Something just ain't right

Every day I want you here with all my might

I'm trying to call out to you...you...you..you, Mummy!!!!

Mummy’s gone, and she's not coming home ever again.
