My mom was diagnosed with stage IV gastrointestinal cancer in January 2013, when I was still a freshman at Georgetown. She passed away this April, but I still feel like she is supporting me from above. Dealing with the grief of losing my mom has been very difficult and sometimes I do feel truly alone; however, AMF has gave me a community where I feel comfortable talking about my grief and a way for me to help others going through similar losses.
