Out the 2 grandmother’s who raised me, she’s all I have left.
For me, she has earned the title of Mum over the years, to others she’s Laverne Altaha (sister, aunt, grandma, etc...) She was diagnosed with breast cancer this spring, it shook our world. I dropped my classes and quit my job to be there for her like she has done for me since I was an abandoned baby.
I broke down out of sight, I’ve become good at pretending I’m ok, deep down I’m shattered... slowly piecing myself back together day by day.
This year, we have become even closer. I love 💕 her for... everything. I may not be loved or accepted for who I am, but my mums love is unconditional & I am happy to still have her in my lonely Spooky life. 👻💯 #Cancer, my mums so close to beating you! 👊🏼💯💕 #breastcancer #standuptocancer #grandma #mom #mum #strong #courage #apache #nativepride #strength #love #family #proud #happy #wednesdaywisdom
