What happens when you find out you have cancer? When you are a teenager with your hole life in front of you?

Anna is 16 and suffers from leukemia. She had a whole lifetime in front of her. And just like that the pieces fell apart. And like the cancer part isn't enough, she also has to be close to the one person she hates the most. The mayers son, Ben.

This is my story for the Fault In Our Stars writing contest.
I chose writing option 2.


11. Goodbye

So. I told him about the cancer. And he didn't leave. He stayed.

When I came home from the hospital, mom called the school and told them I wasn't going to show up anymore. Ben started to come by everyday after school. He insisted on dropping out so that he could be with me all the time and keep me safe. I'm lucky enough to call myself his girlfriend. He calls me every morning, right before school, to tell me he loves me. Sheila brings me chocolate cookies every day at lunch, she skips a couple of classes while doing it, but everyone understands why. I love my best friend and I love she is doing this. I've started to lose my appetite, so I don't really eat anything anymore. Ben usually helps me, eating the cookies, in the afternoon when he arrives at the house. 

My mom loves all the support my two other favorite people give her. I know this must have been hard for her. Dealing with a daughter who is suffering every day from cancer. Something she can't cure. She had been forced to just stand and watch, while her daughter had to suffer. If someone had asked me who my hero was right before I died, I would have told them, that my mom is my hero. She has used every day for the last many months to support me in my battle to live. Even though she knew that I could never win this fight, she stood by me. Every second of every day.

I was home for five weeks. It was the best five weeks of my life. Filled with love and hugs. People I loved and admired. 

Then I was rushed to the hospital. We all knew this was it. This was the end. My end. They never left my side. Mom, Ben and Sheila. They were there the whole time. The last thing Ben told me before I got back to the hospital was that he would never give up on me and his love for me. Even though I was going to die, he would never stop loving me. I loved him. I really did. And I had to let him down. He was there when I died. The very last seconds of my life. He was sitting there holding my hand. My mom was on the other side, holding my other hand. Sheila was whispering in my ear. Things to remember on the other side. The last word she said was: LOVE


I like to think of life as a mystery. One second it's perfect. The next, things start to fall apart.

At least, that's what happened to me.
