Being a mom.

At this point in my life I’ve known two too many 12-year-old girls who have fought cancer and lost.

The first time I was a kid. This time I’m a mom.

Being a mom at a shiva call for a kid makes all the difference.

There’s something about kids with cancer where they tend to have this bravery, this independance, a higher emotional intellect… It’s probably intense to watch up close and it’s fascinating to hear a parent describe it afterwards.

But we should never know.

    As the mother of a 12 year old girl, the very thought of this makes me want to cry.
    I really don’t know where people in these situations find their strength.
