Wilma Fay Jensen 18/09/1939- 30/07/1991.
As I write this, I’m crying thinking about my mum.
30 years ago today, I lost her to Bowel Cancer.
Because of my sister, I feel mum died earlier than she should have.
During mums time in hospital, in Sydney, I was unable to visit.
As my parents owned a Mixed Business in North West NSW.
When mum was released, she spent much of her time in our upstairs flat.
It was hard watching her go through this as she had previously been an active person.
I had no one to support me.
As I was male, was not allowed to show my emotions, and bottled them up.
My last conversation with mum was hours before she died.
Driving back, I had to stop and let loose my emotions, because I knew it was the last time I would see her alive.
Dad never knew, I’m aware.
My grandmother paid for the funeral, as such, mum is buried near her father.
Please, if anyone has any symptons, get checked out immediately.
Life is too short to allow these awful diseases to take control of us.
Getting checked out early and having regular tests, hopefully can prolong your life.
