My Mom Passed Away from Cancer

Today my mom passed away at age 64 from stage 4 triple negative (not growing on body hormones) breast cancer with infilitration and  metastasis to lungs / bones / lymph nodes.

Mom was diagnosed in June 2016 , localized in right breast only. We did the whole protocols of chemo therapies , radical mastectomy , and radio raditions. After one year of  intense treatments her body was cleaned ( PetScan & Cancer Antigens Blood Markers). Three  months later , the shock happened with disease  relapse in the surgery bed with metastasis to the lungs & bones. Another round of new chemo lines and immuno therapies until the disease progression adapted to any chemo therapies by building a self immuno & altering its genome. We shited CMC hospital with hope , as the oncologist said the previous oncologist missed crucial chemo medicines.  Day my day loss of appetite , weight , collapse of lungs. Nothing worked , and she passed away in her room from breath issues.

From my experience:

Cancer has no direct cure. Rather chemo is dumped inside the body to halt  the quick division of cancer cells & none cancer cells ( cells that divide quickly such as white bloods cells ).

Cancer cells change their genome. The body will be  clean & suddenly there is a wake of silent cells.

Cancer cells passes by the immune system as if they are none harmful cells.

Cancer is an agony journey. Chemo has severe side effects like lowering the immunity system , fatigue , heart weakening ... In  cancer agony the patient will on one hand treating cancer and on the other hand treating the symptoms of the treatment it self. Added to that tough scans ( CT Scans , MRIs , PetScans) and tough radio therapies that burn the skin.

Cancer  can be treated but not cured.

Rest in Peace mom , your agony ended today.

My heart goes to you buddy.

I lost someone dear from the same beast last week, it was soo quick I did not get the chance to show him how much I love him. I took a hit and life felt like a stupid dream.

Thank you for sharing this painful path, another validation for us to know that chemo can sometimes be the ultimate worst thing you can give to a cancer patient.

I only wish you can find peace in your sadness.

Re: My Mom Passed Away from Cancer

I am sorry for your loss. It is a very tough feeling to see someone you love suffer and not be able to do anything to help.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Some people might not be aware of the amount of suffering caused by this disease and how common it has become in our country. Early detection is very important in such cases. I urge everyone to do some research about the different types of cancer and the recommended checks that could be done regularly. It may save someone they love.

My condolences to you and your family. May she rest in peace.

Re: My Mom Passed Away from Cancer

I am sorry to hear that man, may she rest in peace, I hope it was peaceful?
I lost my mom in June 2016 to colon cancer after very long years of suffering, surgeries, chemo and relapses. The way I see it is that it's not worth it to go through all the treatments for nothing. She was depressed and miserable for a very long time, doctors are shit in Lebanon from a psychological point of view at least.

What I can tell you is that people will expect you to move on after a couple of months and won't understand what it's like. No one will replace your mom. Not even your partner.
Always be surrounded with people that will actually listen to you if you want to talk about it. Sometimes you will feel that you want to talk about it, make sure you have those people that will listen and not get bored.

Take as much time as you need, it's been almost 3 years for me and I still don't feel like myself and that's okay. It will change you and you will think about her a lot. If you need anything, feel free to reach me.
