I looked up the word Cancer because I wanted to be more knowledgeable of what the kind of Cancer that taken my sister life so young. Taken my sister expectantly. I am smiling even though it was a great loss, I have grief from the loss of my sister but I got through it by the grace of God. My sister's last final words just before she died, I will always hold them in my thoughts and in my heart-Her last words she spoke was: THE ONLY REASON THE FAMILY IS VISITING ME BECAUSE I AM DYING! Those words were powerful words and were true. Nobody went to visit Peggy Lee when she was in need but when the other siblings and brothers wanted something, they went to Peggy Lee and she invited them with open arms and gave. I am guilty in this- I was not aware that Peggy was so ill, and a few year's before her passing I have given her my phone number and told her to call if she ever needed anything but it is not a good enough excuse to not to go visit her on occasion. Instead I left my angry and bitterness and other emotions stopped from making amends with my sister. I learned from that and try not to repeat that same mistake. At least I have tried with my other siblings but they pushed me away.
There are several known types of cancer and I will only name the ones I am now aware of from other's talking about them and hearing from people who walks the cancer walks. Learned from them from loosing my own family from cancer.
As we are all aware Cancer is a known medically neoplasm,broad group of various diseases, all involving in-regulated cell growth.
Breast Cancer, Liver cancer, bone cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and other's. It just happen that the type of Cancer that my sister Peggy Lee cancer was fighting was Squamous Cell cancer. It started from her brain, tumor a size of a dime and over year's it grew,
Squamous Cell Cancer: (SCC or SqCC)
Cancer of a kind of epithelial cell, the Squamous Cell. These cells are the main part of the epidermis of the skin, and cancer is one of the major forms of skin cancer. However, squamous cells are also occur in the lining of the digestive tract,lungs, other areas of the body. My sister started in her brain, (brain tumor) SCC occurs as a form of cancer in the diverse tissues, including the lips, mouth, esophagus, urinary bladder, prostate, lung, vagina, cervix, brain, others. SCC is histologically, distinct form of cancer. SCC is referred to as eperdermoiid carcinoma, SCC epitheliome. Squamous Cell carcinoma, SCC.
I am very thankful for the three and half months my sister did have together. Although it is not much time to make amends, those three months we got to laugh, cry, share memories, make memories, and I was at peace knowing she was saved and will be in heaven. I had grief after her death but God send me comfort through the love of an animal. PJ. I knew and believe in my heart my sister loved me and we forgiven each other and I know I will see her lovely face again and we will be join together in heaven one day. January 17, 2013, will be the Anniversary of my sister death. I know she don't want be down here getting all mushy and stuff but to celebrate her death. I shared her story today, In The Memory of her birth in heaven! I will released a balloon in the air and light a candle, my sister Peggy Lee is looking down upon me as my guardian angel and of course pointing those skinny fingers of hers at me: She would say: Sit Up, Straighten Up: Put a smile on that old puss of yours..It is not me you have to cry over, should be crying over all the loss souls. I can picture that in my head scolding me. I thank God he took my sister quickly, she didn't have to suffer no more. It would be selfish of me to not to let her go in the Father's hands, to be selfish of me to try to hang onto her down here on earth to prolong her suffering. She is always gone to be part of me, the most treasure memories my sister left behind was the three and half months we got to spend together. She was a fighter, she never gave up Hope, she fought to the very end. I am proud of my sister.
When I think of her now..she makes me smile and laugh. I remember the good things she left behind and learn a few lessons from her fighting of cancer that gives me the strength to fight my own battles.
Rest In Peace Sister: You have your Angel Wings! I hope you didn't mind sis, I shared your story with my gather friends. Love you sis!
IN MEMORY OF PEGGY LEE
JUNE 15,1955 TO JANUARY 17,2007
Sis, Listen up in heaven and take advise. Tell grandma I said hello.
If you ever had a family or know anybody who is a cancer survivor or fighting cancer or lost someone to cancer: Listen to their survival testimony-I listen and I watch my sister fight, she had more strength and was courageous and laying there fighting with all her strength she had in her, not once did she think of herself or the cancer. Her concerns was about where her 11 year old son will be taken to, Who will take care of him and our family feud. Love one another she say, put all these childish things away and be a family for what God have to do for the family to be kind and love one another. My strength comes from my sister watching her fight cancer.
Cancer Sucks! I hate Cancer!
