My mom has proven to be my biggest supporter through everything. She never missed a doctor appointment or a PET scan. When I got admitted to the hospital, she admitted herself too. She stayed by my side for those five days every time.
She laughed with me, she cried with me and she sat there quietly when I would yell and become frustrated. She showed me without telling me that she would always be there and that she would never leave my side.
Here is an open letter from her:
You have so much to offer Emily and I've told you all this before. You are strong and courageous and to be able to go through all you've gone through and come out stronger and tougher. That is where the true story is.
It is a sad reality that people who are not affected by something will go on with their life and not give your situation a second thought. It's those who wake up every day and their first thought is the unfortunate situation that is going on in their life, they are the ones living a life they didn't ask for.
There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. The fears you have. The emotions you go through daily. The struggles. I think about all of this every day. And I pray to God every day that He place a bubble around you to keep you from any harm. To protect you. Yes I ask him this every day. I love you Em.
I love you mom.
