My Grandmother and my nephew about 6 years ago
4 1/2 years ago, my grandmother lost her battle with breast cancer, she was 82. She fought hard and was almost at the 5 year point (post 2nd mastectomy) when we found out that the cancer had spread through out her body. Fortunately, she did not suffer at the end, but unfortunately she dies 3 days after finding out that not only was her cancer back, but it had spread throughout her body and she was now facing a terminal cancer vs something that she could fight. Given that this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would pay tribute to my grandmother. She was a major influence in my life and I only wish that she could have seen me get married and have my children, especially my twins (she was a twin herself)!
We miss you nana!
