I never thought there would be a reason to link my grandmother, my aunty and my mother-in-law and to Beyonce but alas I have found one. Any takers? All survivors!
Ok, so whilst Beyonce sang about being a survivor, the other strong ladies in my life didn’t give up, didn’t stop and did, every bloody day, work harder to beat this MoFo of a disease called Cancer.
Unfortunately my Grandma passed away, my aunty has an AWOL boob but is otherwise fine and my mother-in-law, well…she’s got a dodgy colon and although both present, one malfunctioning boob – yep, she has kept going, TWICE!
All three superwomen had/have lived full lives before being faced with this monster. I can’t begin to comprehend and hope I never will have to, how it must be for a mummy to find out her baby has been taken over by the Cancer alien *shudder*. Two years ago, my cousin discovered that her little angel was fighting the demon, aged only two! It fills me with joy to say that although she lost her curls and her rosy cheeks, she didn’t lose her strength – she’s on the mend, she’s good and she’s a survivor!
