Mother’s Day brings about sadness. No parent should ever be in the position to lose his/her child but sadly, so many of us have! I just keep thinking it should be the other way around. The hardest thing is knowing Shelli will not knock on the front door again and enter so full of energy and enthusiasm that you feel exhausted before she started then she would engulf you in her enthusiasm and pass this energy on to you.

You may be sad that this special occasion may not be the way it used to be, but as a family we will try to find a way to grieve and celebrate Mother’s Day all at the same time.

For cancer patients Mother’s Day celebrations can be extremely difficult. You all feel a range of emotions thinking about what you have been through and what may happen in the future. There is no right or wrong way to feel as everyone reacts and copes in their own way.

I hope you can find some joy in celebrating this day.
