I very rarely discuss my family especially through this public forum, today will be the exception.  I grew up in Schenectady, NY (which is a city not far from New York's capital, Albany).  It's around a 4 1/2 drive from Buffalo which makes it difficult to travel back and forth on a regular basis, although I wish I could more often.  I have extended family all over the states but my Mom, Dad, (currently my brother - he normally resides in Louisiana ) and grammies all call Schenectady home.  I recently received news that my mother was diagnosed with cancer, I am truly at a loss.   I wanted to share this critical moment in life with my readers in hopes of support, positive vibes, or stories you can share.  

I know you'll read this Mom, we are all sending positivity your way and you are loved very much.

  1. I am so sorry to hear that. My stepmom has had cancer 3 times, and I can tell you that it's going to be hard, through the chemo and all the emotional feelings, but this will bring your family closer together. Remember to stay positive, and know that she will be okay.

I found a post on Chictopia today from jazzybelle (http://www.chictopia.com/photo/show/295450-I+am+woman-dress-chinese-laundry-shoes) - she was saying that this time last year her mum was diagnosed with breast cancer and now she has fully recovered...big hugs xox
