Focusing on Italian Genealogy and uncovering the testa duras in my family tree

Missing Mom

My mom passed away 10 weeks ago. This is the first time I can write or think that without breaking down. She was diagnosed with stage 2 ovarian cancer in August 2011. She bravely went through an extremely tough round of chemo and it looked like she had bought herself some time. But the doctor’s prognosis of the cancer recurring in 4 -5 years were wrong. I know ovarian cancer is incurable. I know she was 82 years old. But with so many advances in medicine, how did she only get 21 months? And the last 6 were spent going from doctor to doctor, from specialist to specialist, from test to test? I feel cosmically ripped off and I don’t know if I can get over that. Cancer sucks!
