My husband and I were sitting at the kitchen table eating our lunch when our 7-year-old daughter came in with her friend. We all turned to her in horror and her eyes were wide as she said, “My aunt, my aunt, my aunt” to me! I immediately asked her what had just happened. She explained that her aunt was her friend and had been in a terrible car accident. She was taken to the hospital and then transferred to the ICU.
My sister, my sister who is a nurse and is probably the most incredible person I have ever known, was in the same situation, and she was so kind and sympathetic. She told me that they were doing everything they could to save her aunt but when they were finally able to give her some fluids, the doctors told her aunt’s heart had stopped and they had to do surgery to try to restart its beating.
I guess these stories are a bit grim, but in the case of Bryce Young-Mays, she did what so many of us would have done and was there for us when we needed her. The story of Bryce Young-Mays and her family is one of those stories that will resonate with anyone who has had the courage to seek medical care for themselves or a loved one.
Bryce Young-Mays breast cancer story is one of those stories that has resonated with so many people for so many reasons. I am no stranger to cancer, but I wish I could say I had a family member who would be so understanding as Bryce was. Bryce told me in an interview that she had been diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer when she was 19.
I had to look it up because I want to get an opinion of Bryce’s family. I’ve heard of breast cancer, but I’ve never read up on it, but my husband and I were talking to a local breast cancer foundation because we wanted our own personal support when we found out we were having our first baby early last year. Bryce’s mother was told that she would never see her daughter again.
I don’t know where Bryces mom is now, but if you listen to the audio of her interview, you can hear her mother’s voice crying in the background saying, “I have no idea what happened to her. She was told she wouldn’t see her daughter again. She didn’t know what happened.” I imagine the pain in her mother’s voice is what she is going through.
The audio of Bryces mom talking to the interviewer can be found here.
