On December 25th 2016, my Oma was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, one of the rarest forms of cancers. 1 in 132 diagnosed with cancer will be diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and, out of those, only 50% will survive the maximum 5 year life expectancy. Watching a loved one battle cancer is terrifying, but regardless of how I felt, from diagnosis to passing, I was with my Oma every step of the way. I was with her the day she received the dreaded call and I held her hands until she took her last breath. In my 21 years I can say that watching one of the most important people in my life battle cancer was the hardest thing I have ever experienced.
