- Last week my Grandma was diagnosed with liver cacner. She was given about 2-6 weeks. She has been a wonderful mother of 14 yes 14 children and an amazing grandmother of 27 and great-grandmother of 15 I scrambled, scrounged and begged for help purchasing a plane ticket for my son and myself to spend this last Christmas with her (nothing like trying to find a good deal on a ticket at the holidays!). My biggest Christmas wish is that as many of my aunts, uncles and cousins can all get together with her this one last time and give her a truly magical Christmas and help ease any of the pain she may be experiencing. I will miss her so much.
