My brave girl Liane Paula Roberson

(Durham UK)

Liane was born the middle child of 5 my second daughter followed by another son and daughter to a second relationship. Liane was always the peace maker in the family she liked everyone to be together and loved family get togethers. She joined the army at 16 something she had always wanted to she met her future husband while based in Germany and came back home to the UK aged 19 with a beautiful baby daughter her husband remained in the army but Liane wanted Abby to have a stable base so they bought a house close to me and she lived there full time in 2010 Liane fell pregnant again and their son Keiran was born 9 weeks early in November 2010 her husband was in Germany so I went into the delivery room with her along with her younger sister Lucy aged 17 it was very special. In March 2011 Liane began to feel unwell and things hadn't properly settled down after the pregnancy she went the Drs 4 times but wasn't given anything anyway long story short I took her to hospital and on the 10th of May 2011 she was diagnosed with cervical cancer aged 26 she hadn't been called for screening as she was pregnant she underwent radiotherapy and chemotherapy but on the 23rd of August 2011 we were told it had spread and wasn't treatable. My brave daughter fought but died on the 14th of November 2011 I feel that I will never be happy again it was harrowing watching the cancer destroy her and strip away her dignity in such a vicious and cruel way. I miss her all the time and each day still feels like a mountin to climb. I love her so much I feel my heart will break.

11 years
by: Lue, Jacob's mom

Jan, I am so very sorry that you lost your daughter, Liane. My son, Jacob had bone cancer at 19 and at 21 he had died. He died on 3/30/2001. Most of the people on this site have lost their children less than 4 years ago. Since 11 years have passed since Jacob passed away I have gone through it all so to speak. You can read my story if you wish, Grief According to Lue and it will explain the hurt and anger I felt. I still miss Jacob. Sometimes I have crying spells and once in a while I get angry but after all this time I had time to accept his death and I knew I had to start living again, not just existing. I needed to do that for myself and my family. I started honoring Jacob as much as I could. I have found joy and peace again but it has taken a long time. I will forever miss him and have sadness in my heart because he is not with me but one day I will see him again. I know exactly what you are going through and how bad it hurts. It is horrible. I will pray for you and your family. You can send me an email. I am more than happy to help in any way I can. Just know you are thought of and are being prayed for.

Your daughter forever
by: Anonymous

You and I have lost our children in their 20ties. It hurts, it viciously pulls at your heart and soul and the wounds stay sore and wide open. Such is the day after day, moment after moment. I have gone through prayer and to most dreadful doubt in God. I hope to return to some peace. I hope and pray that you too find relief.
