Dear Johnny, 

I’m writing this because I never ask for help but this year I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I lost my oldest daughter to the same cancer 5 years ago, she was only 22 years old and left behind a son. I’ve been raising him since she past away. I knew at the time when my daughter was diagnosed, that this cancer is rare and genetic. The name of the cancer is hereditary diffuse gastric cancer. Since this is genetic, we’ve now learned that my youngest daughter and grandson are both positive for the gene. My husband has had to take off work to take care of me and we are behind on bills and trying to keep food on the table. The older kids understand the situation, but my grandson doesn’t. My daughter passed on December 30th of 2012, so this is a hard time of year for us. I worry about my kids. 

 

Thank you for listening to me,

Dana
