The last time I cried, and not those tears of sadness, that makes everyone feels upset, but the type that lights up your face, was when I found out my mother cancer was under control, that so far it seem to be gone.
Although we bicker and fight, sometimes even yell at each other or give each other the silent treatment, at the end of the day, we adore each other, it’s just that our personality crash.
My mother had told me that she had cancer and it was really scary, she told me that if anything happen, to take care of my younger brother, that she was proud of me and who I’ve become. Now, this was a year ago, but it still feel as if it was just yesterday. She had to take chemotherapy and she worried that her hair would fall off, but all she got was a few bruises on her pale skin.
After months of Chemotherapy, she pulled me aside, since my brother didn’t (and still doesn’t) know what was happening with her. She looked at me and smiled then said “They say the cancer is gone, I’ll have to come back to check myself in a year, but right now it’s gone, there’s no trace of it. I am on testosterone pills for life…but at least it’s gone”
I was in shocked, all I could do was hug her, then when she was gone, I began to cry, thanking every god I could think of, it was scary to think that I almost lost my mother, my super woman and the person I’ve always admire, especially to something like cancer.
