My mom passed away when I was 12. When she found out she had the cancer, it was already too late; she was a Stage IV. She had tumors behind her brain and heart, and it was starting to spread. She didnt have any signs of a mole or anything. The doctor gave her 6 months to live; she lived 12. She went through chemo and meds, but nothing was working. It was just getting worse, and she started having seizures. She fought as long as she could and passed away at 51.
