Assalamu'alaikum, sisters and brothers in Islam.
My beloved Mom has just been diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer. My family and I have been devastated by the news. On Monday, Aug 21st, the result of the biopsy of her stomach and intestines will be out. Then the surgeons will decide on what to do. Chemo/surgery. She does not know yet about the diagnosis. I don't know how to tell her.
She has been my pillar of strength. She's a devout Muslim. She's disappointed in me because of my hesitation to wear the headscarf. I don't want to disappoint her anymore. God knows how many times in my life that I've been such a disappointment.
I really don't want to lose such a loving mother..
