Hi, my mom died of colorectal cancer when I was 15 and I am so paranoid about cancer! All kinds of cancer! I don't even have higher risk because I was adopted, but I am really paranoid about dying while my kids are young because I saw how hard it was for my sister (she was only 4). Anyone else experience this?

My mother had MS and auto immune diseases run really strong in my family. I didn't lose my mother physically until 2 years ago. She was gone years before. But I look at myself and my children constantly looking for the signs. Praying my kids will be safe.
Growing up with this amazingly strong, vibrant, beautiful woman, and then watching the light go out of her. It is still hard to talk about.

Not really. I mean my mom died of diabetes and heart failure, my father died of brain cancer and my grandfather died of multiple organ failure and my grandmother died of a stroke......i mean i have a lot to choose from, i cannot be paranoid about all of them.....oh well .....at least it limits the ways of my final exit.
