Why I am the luckiest mother!







I know its mothers day and our children are making cards and gifts to show their appreciation for what we do through out the year.

I want to do the reverse,and thank my son Branden for the blessing of me being his mom.

I know every mom thinks their kid is the best and special. But with my child, there are not  enough words in the English language to express my feelings about him.

When you where born, I fell in love with you! You have always had an amazing giggle that makes me laugh. And speaking of laughing you have my sense of humor ( I pride myself on that!). You can build amazing things out of the simplest things. And figure out any tech gadget there is!

You have not always had it easy in your 13 years of life…my divorce at the age of 4,your poppy passing, and me having breast cancer. Through it all you have been strong, brilliant, a joy and most of all the best son anyone could have wished for.


Thank you for taking care of me at my lowest of lows and making me smile. You are my special child, and just by doing that you have made ME the luckiest mother!!



About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!
