My poor mum, she has 3 daughters that she has done just that for - watched us grow, protected us, made the pain go away, kept us safe & been there for us whenever we have been hurt, sad, scared. And now she feels powerless, BRCA1 isn't someone she can hunt down, isn't a bump she can kiss better, tears she can wipe away, a burden she can carry for us. Instead she must watch, watch her daughters face this foe and there is nothing she can do. She would take it all away if she could but she can't and I know it is breaking her heart.
I love you mummy xxxxxxxxx
