My great grandma was my best friend
A couple years ago i lost someone special. I lost my great grandma.
When i was 5 i remember me and her working in the garden. She would teach me how to dig out the weeds properly. She had lung cancer. She was very healthy and did not smoke. But before the lung cancer, she had breast cancer.
Anyway back to the story. We thought she would fight the cancer and get through it all and be better. We spoke too soon because the cancer was spreading. The cancer was taking over my great grandma and soon enough she couldn't garden anymore. She couldn't get up to get a glass of water. And she was in her living room upstairs, lying down in a hospital bed.
A couple years ago this was happening. When i went to visit her, my mom said "I'm warning you not to go inside you see your great grandmother." I could see that my mom was tearing up and i said "But i want to see her before she goes." So me and my brother walked into my great grandma's house and i was shocked at the sight i saw!! My great grandmother's cancer had affected her skin. Her skin was yellow-ish.
Then two months afterwards, i went to my friend's house and my mom called and said "Do you want me to come pick you up???" and i said "sure mom." When i got home my mom burst out in tears and i asked "What's wrong??" I was having a blast at my friend's house but when my mom told me that my great grandmother had passed away I broke out in tears and ran to my room. I cried myself to sleep that night because me and my great grandmother were close. And i told her everything!!!! I still wish that i could have saved her but there's nothing i could have done.
