My Mom’s Story

On August 6, 2007, Colleen Sigman passed away from renal cell carcinoma. Colleen Sigman is not just another statistic for kidney cancer she was a mom, a grandma (maw maw), a niece, an Aunt, a sister-in-law, and a cousin and most of all she was my best friend and my life along with many others will never be the same without her.

My mom loved life and she lived it to the fullest. When we found out how far advanced her cancer was she never once said “Why Me?!” The only thing she said was that she was glad she got to raise her children. She spent the next month of her life making sure that her children and grandchildren would be okay after she was gone. 

I found the Kidney Cancer Konnection on facebook and I’m so glad I looked more into the site. I have found already meet 2 wonderful women who have lost loved ones to this horrible disease. I finally found people that get it!

I hope to be able to blog about my life and the struggles with losing my mom to kidney cancer and maybe along the way I can help someone that is having the same struggles.
