‘You should have been on your knees’: Woman describes how she felt as her daughter died from cancer

JAMES SIMS’S wife has spoken of the pain she felt after her daughter’s death.

Alice Cooper, 39, said she felt “sad and angry” when she first learned of the teenager’s diagnosis and treatment.

She was told she was cancer free by her family in July 2017 and was given an initial $50,000 by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).

But after her child died in November, she received a letter from the RCOG informing her that the mother of the child had also been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Alice, from Croydon, said: “I had a lump in my throat, it was bleeding all the time.

“It was so upsetting to me that I felt so guilty that I was still pregnant and not sure what was going on with my daughter. “

“After all this time, I just felt so angry.” “

Alice said she still had not received any information about the cancer treatment the family was given and had even been told the family could not travel abroad. “

She said: I felt ashamed and angry at the time, but it was something I just got used to.

Alice’s story has been shared on social media and she has received support from fellow doctors and nurses, who have spoken about their experiences. “

My family have said they don’t want me to tell anyone else about it because of my privacy.”

Alice said: The cancer was a shock to me because it was so unexpected and I didn’t know anything about it at all.

“You could tell it was pretty serious, but I didn “t really know what to do with it.

“Then I realised it was cancer and the cancer was really bad and I was in pain. “

“The pain just kept going on. “

“All I could think about was getting her home as quickly as possible.” “

Alice says she has been given an extra $50 000 by the organisation, which will allow her to travel abroad for the second time. “

“That is a really big step for me because I have had cancer for a while and it’s just so frustrating when you are told it’s going to kill you,” she said.

“But it’s worth it because it’s been a huge help for me.”

Alice and her husband James were both given radiotherapy at their home when their daughter Alice died.

Alice says the family’s home has been a “living nightmare” since Alice’s diagnosis, but her husband says it has helped them to stay positive.

“We’ve been able to keep it a bit normal and have a little bit of comfort.”

It’s a great thing to be able to go back to our normal life and we’re really happy with it,” he said.

Alice and James, who are now in their 70s, said they are now “doing our best to stay strong and continue to do the best for our daughter”.

Alice added that her daughter was “still the best friend we have”. “

They’ve done a lot to help us, but the most important thing is for me to be happy and be able do my job,” she added.

Alice added that her daughter was “still the best friend we have”.

“I know she’s going through so much and is doing everything she can to get through it, but that is her family and it is her choice and I will support her in whatever way I can,” she concluded.
