I’m 32, and have 2 kids, ages 3 & 6, who I adore more than anything. I’m married to a wonderful man! I thankfully have all my family around for support. Just want to beat this damn cancer for as many years as I can. I can only hope it’ll be 15+ years to see my kids graduate high school and be well on their way to their own future. I am devastated by this early diagnosis so early in my life, I don’t know why this couldn’t have happened in my 50’s, I would have been ok with that, as seeing my kids grow was my dream for years before I had them! FU CANCER!
