Hi I am Mara, the daughter of a greatest mom ever named Dace. This all started when I was 3 years old. We were all a happy family then the world turned upside down. We found out my mom had breast cancer. The feeling was nothing I could describe. A while later, her cancer seemed to be gone, but just as our lives got back to normal, she was diagnosed with it again. Six months ago she had an MRI showing she had the cancer was growing inside of her. She lost her eyesight at that time. Its the hardest thing in the world, seeing your own mother suffer, knowing you cant do anything. There is not a feeling in the world that can match this. It felt like our life was normal again, that we were all happy. We all knew this was not good. My mom has been fighting my whole life, and I pray she can keep fighting.
She is my hero because of her amazing perseverance and being a very loving mother, whom I love very much. She is the kindness person you will ever meet, despite her problems. Me and my siblings will always fight with her. Nothing will stop us from fighting this horrible disease. I pray that my mom will win her battle because I don't know what my life would be without her.
