Cancer Strikes Again

Yesterday I learned my favorite uncle is going to die. Cancer has reared it’s ugly head in my family once again. Really there should be some universal rule that Cancer should have to comply with, like you only get to strike a family one time.  In 1996, my mother’s diagnosis was the same dire death sentence. With her weak heart and as much as the cancer had spread,  she wasn’t strong enough for chemo even if it was not too late. In shock my family and I visited daily and I sat with her during her last couple of months of life. I did as she asked and was strong for everyone.

I was strong but once she was gone my tears would flow at the blink of an eye daily for months, She was only 53. Cancer had already taken my Aunt Lavonna despite heroic efforts to save her life. Later I was told Cancer also took her husband, my Uncle Jim. And now it’s back to claim another member of my family. How I hate that word Cancer, how I hate that disease Cancer. Now it will take the life of another member of the Kamer family. Three adult Kamers, all Cancer’s victim. We’ve had more than our share of this disease.

I for one am sick of the disease but it does no good. It just keeps claiming my family members. I guess we are fortunate that in our family Cancer has only taken the lives of adults. May it stay that way.

I believe in GOD and my faith is solid but I fail to understand why GOD lets Cancer continue to take out our loved ones, especially repeatedly in one family. Why is Cancer allowed to take the lives of small children who haven’t had a chance to live? And when will Cancer be eradicated from the face of the Earth?

I only know that for now my heart is hurting and there are still no answers forthcoming.

I had to write my son yesterday and let him know Uncle Bobby is dying. It is too late, the cancer too far gone, Stage 4 they say. Inoperable. They sent him home to die promising to make him as comfortable as possible until the end.

Bravely, he began to call family members to say his goodbyes while he knows he still can.

Why do ‘Men in Skirts’ cost so much? My uncle wants a Scotsman in a kilt to play Amazing Grace on the bagpipes. But there is no way we can afford ‘Men in Skirts’. Our family is far from well off and it is just not within our means. So my uncle will most likely be bid farewell to the sound of Amazing Grace played by bagpipes but from a CD. I wish I knew of a last wish foundation so that I could arrange for his bagpipes before he is gone.

I’m going to take my aching heart to the kitchen and try to find something to eat for the appetite I don’t have right now. I wish the tears would stop welling up unexpectedly. I wish he wasn’t dying.

About Two Artsy Crafty Sisters

Decided to fulfill a lifelong dream. I'm going to start writing, drawing, and crafting again. I want to start a business working a few hours a day from home but I learned through some mistakes and some really bad luck and some bad decisions that I wasn't knowledgeable enough about the while process so brought that to a halt. While I am disabled by a chronic condition and seems I'll be disabled awhile longer, I still feel the need to keep trying to find a way to sustain myself through some sort of work I can do part time from home. Any way I am inviting you along on my journey as I explore the possibilities available in the artistic creativity realm for two older artsy crafty sisters to use our creative talents to create a some freelance design work of our own. I also love reading, especially mystery thrillers. Favorite authors include James Patterson, Lisa Gardner, and Michael Crichton. I've met some really talented people online as I reach out to other creative types like authors, writers and creator of book trailers that are fantastic is Aimeé Bejerano. Two Artsy Crafty Sisters also has a brand new page on Facebook, just a page for Inspiring Art, Crafts, Writing by people wanting to browse our arts and crafts finds we've. posted. Commercial Ads are not welcome and neither is sexually explicit art, crafts, or writing excerpts. I want to keep it clean because let's face it many young people are on Facebook. I think it will be fun to contribute shares here and on the Two Artsy Crafty Sisters Facebook Page, some with description, occasionally posts will include links to the website the contributor is sharing photos of. It doesn't have to be your art as long as it is shareable on public domains and has credits and or links. I'm hoping to widen my creative world of contacts and yours on my journey and learn how to create a business with our talent because I want to be an independent self sustaining individual again, but it will really make me smile if it turns into a profitable Nonprofit. Every one creative or seeking creative ideas us welcome to post on my blog and on my FaceBook Page. Let's talk Art, Crafts, Tools, Apps, Mediums, How to...., I watch tons of YouTube and Creative Bug Tutorials and practice, practice, practice while learning what I can in my informal self education. Okay so some of my Favorite actresses/actors include Bruce Willis, Julia Roberts, Sharon Stone, Kevin Costner, Will Smith, Mel Gibson, Morgan Freeman all of them are premiere actors/actresses. I enjoy creating art and crafting, and sketching as well as photography, learning and using the apps poetry, and writing Not the next Leonardo D'Vinci for sure and recently I changed my thinking. You see, I never felt successful in creating art and crafts and then I had an epiphany in which I realized I don't have to be a Leonardo Da Vinci to create using a God given talent. So on a more personal note, I have one adult son age 40 years that I regretfully rarely get to see. I absolutely adore children, always protective of their vulnerability and innocence. It kills me that I can not capture with pen or brush a child's innocence. That sums me up! So come on this journey with me, let's get better together, share resources, inspire and support each other with discussion, feedback, laughs and share. Until Wednesday take care and feel free to post and comment, just please be appropriate and respectful. Take Care 0;) B Two Artsy Crafty Sisters FaceBook Page-Personal Group.
