Rest in Peace
This is Sue's daughter Tina.
Mum always said the most frustrating thing about the Breast Cancer Network was when people just disappeared and you didn't know what happened to them - well you do, but it would be nice to know the full story. Well here's Mum's story.
Mum moved in with me about 12 weeks ago for that support that you all encouraged her to get. She stopped all treatment (radiation, chemo etc) after the brain tumours and whole of brain radiation and was just taking medicine to keep her comfortable and maintain her quality of life (pain medication, anti-nausea and some steriods).
While she was here we went to morning teas (including a high tea), lunches, the art gallery, the museum, she took her granddaughters to Disney on Ice, we ate chippies and watched movies and went for scenic drives. We weren't ruled by hospital visits for treatment although there were still regular doctors appointments these were no longer the focus of our lives.
We will cherish this time with her forever.
On the 23rd of July 2016, Mum passed away peacefully in her sleep.
