She drove me home and I remember running to my moms bed the second I got the door open. I ran to her crying. I felt worthless. I couldn't do anything, couldn't help my own mother. Couldn't help her make it through this. All I wanted to do was make my mother better but I was too young. I was just a child. Thankfully there were doctors and blood donors there to help my mother make it through and I'm forever grateful for that.
Now that I'm older, I make a weekly appointment to donate platelets to help those who are going through the fight with cancer. I encourage others to do the same. So many people were there for my mother when she needed help, and now I'm happy to be there for others who need it.
