Cancer sucks

by Sarah

I was only 15 at the time. My uncle had been fighing a losing battle with colon cancer for 3 years, he was administered to the hospital where me and my mom spent most of our free time at. He was then sent home because he had been cleared of whatever they were trying to do, which im not entirely sure about, my mom tried to protect me by not telling me much. He was then administered to the ICU for something, spent the last couple months of his life fighting until the colon cancer had spred to his lymph nodes to his liver which ultimately killed him. My aunt had cancer when i was eightish she made a full recovery and was cancer free for 7 more years. She passed in 12 days of us even knowing she had a tumor, it was in her lower back and was the most aggressive possible type, within the next 12 days that cancer spreadfrom her hip bone up he back and into her brain, my last time i spent with her i was doing homework until i had to leave, i then quickly said goodbye, i never saw her again, thats is the biggest regret of my life and im only 16 now.My grandfather had parkinsins and passed about 7 days after my aunt did, so that was the hardest week ive even had to deal with in my entire life.
Its all coming back because we had a family outing at her house, where my mother recieved gifts from the daughters of my aunt and uncle, from my aunt, a scarf that she wore often, i smell it everyday before i go to school, from my uncle, an olllddd tennis racket he used in high school, and a teddy bear me and my mom sent him for his birhtday, it has his favorite teams jersey on it. So i lve been missing them alot lately and just wanted to get that off my back, my uncles deathavarassary is coming up soon, wish me and my mom luck :)
