    I wanted to put my story out there online just in case there is another mom who needs to know that they are not alone.  My daughter (age 7 at the time) was diagnosed with stage 3 Wilm's tumor in June 2012.  She completed treatment in January 2013 and is doing great.  However, most of the support forums online are populated by very religious people.  I am an atheist, and it has been difficult to relate to other people who trust that it is "god's will" to give a child cancer, and that whatever happens they should just accept it as a part of his plan.  I do NOT believe this of course, and if there is anyone else out there who is having a similar experience, I wanted them to know that I understand what they are going through.

    My mother felt a low sensation in her right side last year. Also her right eye developed field defect. She was diagnosed with brain tumour (CNS lymphoma) in December 2013. My father died when I was four and mother was everything to me. She became weak due to chemo but did not suffer much. Only the night she died she experienced breathlessness but died peacefully afterwards on 23 Feb 2013. One thing I will add that everyone prayed for her but Nature is unconscious and we have to face her boldly.
