It was 2016 before my father died when my mom started to feel the lumps around her right breast. She used to ignore it saying to herself that it was nothing. And she was trying to convince us like it was really nothing because she doesn't feel anything. She doesn't feel any pain, nor any sign that it would be leading to this.
(this is mom's biopsy result)
September 1, 2018 when I accompanied my mom to the hospital, the doctor explained to me the result of my mom's biopsy. I knew from the time when the doctor beckoned go outside the room that I would hear something I couldn't accept. I was looking nowhere during the doctor's explanation. I couldn't even take a look to mom when I turned back at the doctor's room. The only thing that I've said to my mother was, "You have to be operated. Your breast should be removed." She asked me, "Is it cancer?" I was looking far and trying my might not to cry. I still want to show her that everything was alright. That there was nothing to worry like how she was trying to show me when she first felt the lumps.
She was scheduled for her operation on September 11, 2018. While we were walking along the hallway of the hospital going to Operating Room, we were both laughing as I goaded her.
I was sleeping when the Nurse asked me to come to the Operating Room, I prepared myself. The doctor shook hands with me upon my enter at the Operating Room then said, "She's okay. everything was done. I removed the lumps,. etc. etc. After 3hours she will be transferred to her room". I couldn't understand the rest, the fact that I've heard that my mom was okay gave me air to breath.

(finally, after 10hrs of sleep after her operation, making her feel to just sleep the whole day and don't be disturbed, the anesthesia lighten its effect to her body)
It not ends there, she has to undergo six (6) sessions of chemotherapy to complete the medication. She was scheduled to have her first chemo session on October 25, 2018. Her 1st chemo session amounts to Php50,000 ($944) in which we couldn't have in a glance.
