RE: Sorry About Your Mom

RE: Sorry About Your Mom

By Elizabeth Ann Entenman

What do you do when someone you love is facing death? Why does cremation cost so much? Are some family members more important than others? Elizabeth relives the last 133 days of her mother’s fight with cancer through daily email updates sent by her father. She takes a realistic approach to hope, questions the definition of “faith” and embraces her impending sadness. For anyone who’s ever lost a loved one to cancer, or has been a cancer caretaker, Elizabeth’s stories and experiences will remind you that you’re truly not alone.
