My Mom Has Cancer and is Doing Okay

For years, I wondered if anyone in my family would ever be sick and need the use of medical marijuana. I soon found out the answer to that because my own mother has cancer and she now gets medical marijuana in Marlton NJ where she lives. Cancer has been a very scary thing to me, and it has been so scary to watch my mother go through it. However, I am glad that she is someone who lives in a time where our medical community can do so many more things for a patient to keep them alive and to keep them comfortable as well.

Mom has always been really good with her health. I can’t say the same for myself. My mom has been really into exercise for as long as I can remember. I have never seen her weigh more than 5 pounds over her appropriate weight. She walks, bikes, swims and so many more things. About a year before her diagnosis, she also took up golfing. Rather than use the golf cart to get around the course, she always chose to walk the course. I have always been lazy when it comes to these sort of things. Mom has always eaten really healthy meals, too.

It was a big surprise to me to learn that my mom is sick at such a young age. She is only 50 years old. I am an adult, but she had me at a very young age. I do all that I can to help her. When the pain pills she was getting from the doctor were not strong enough, the doctor then prescribed medical marijuana for her. She has seen a major decrease in the amount of pain she has, and I am really happy to see that. It gives us more time together without pain getting in the way.
