My mother is my hero. As a child growing up she lived in a house with her difficult father, who eventually died, leaving her to raise her younger sister while her mother went to work.
As a young mother in 1971 (children 4, 3 and 1) she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and given less than 6 months to live. With pure determination and the love and support of a strong husband she survived the ovarian cancer, and a later bought of breast cancer in the early 1980's. Mom, now 66, enjoys her three grandchildren and baby-sits them everyday for fun.
My mom is my Hero. Dad too.
