An Important Update: In January 2022 my mother, who was living in upstate New York, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. Two weeks later I fell from the backyard steps and fractured my right knee and tore a major muscle around that knee. I was incapacitated for over eight weeks. I wore a hinged brace to keep my knee together and I used crutches for the short trips to and from important facilities. I lived on the first floor of the house and slept on the magnificent red velvet sofa. I talked to my mom almost daily. Sometimes she didn’t have the energy to talk for more than a few minutes. As my daughter and I scrambled to arrange for transport to visit with mom I took a pause from my community work and I was on leave from my regular job. I managed two visits in which I learned how devastating and ravaging cancer can be and how I will be forever impacted by the way my mom suffered. At a visit with her doctor she gave me clues about how long she thought she had to live but I was trying to be grounded and level headed for her sake and my sake, as well so I took them in stride. I was busy trying to gear up for what else would come given that her first round of chemo/infusion was so incredibly hard and scary. Then in the second week of June I tore the meniscus of my left leg and was incapacitated, yet again. My mom died the following Friday, June 24, 2022, the exact number of months she gave me earlier. I mourned the year through. I am slowly reclaiming the work before me. My mom was proud of my campaigns. My uncle told me so. I will continue to do right by her. Stay tuned for more and thank you for your support.
