I’m Trying My Hardest to Continue to Take Care of Everyone

When I was 11 or so my mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and she fought with it for three years and various operations until the cancer took to her entire body and she died.

Now five years later my father has got agressive cancer too, which affects us financially as well as in every other possible way.

My wider family are not very nice people and so I am striving to do my best around what I have been given and hope that that there is something more in life then cancer.

I have been taking care of my family for the last five years and despite the illness affecting my father and sister’s mental states I am trying my hardest to continue take care of everyone as well as hopefully get a chance to live a happy life as a young adult and go to university.
