Wow, most poorly written article on HuffPost ever. I mean, I remember thinking that this woman has no communication skills if she thinks this style is working for her.

Live life one day at a time, live each day to it's most and pray each night that God gives you another day. That's all we can do. I wish you all the best, from one survivor to another who will hopefully be a survivor, too.

Thank you, gmapaty for your loving post concerning this writer. I am so ashamed in my heart that people would react with such a cavalier attitude to this poor woman who is suffering beyond recognition. The "I remembers" are because it is one long case of agony and fear. I would say shame on all people who lack sympathy.

I pray for many happy days to REMEMBER your daughter playing and a wonderful life for years to come until this is all just a memory in time.

I would have loved to have gotten throught this story, but after the 20th "I remember" I remembered that I didn't want to read any further

Nobody F$&#%king gets it. Been reading alot of the comments on here about people complaining about getting a headache because too many "I remembers", critiquing her writing- this is so horrible, shame on alllll of you! These ignorant heartless commentators make me wonder if they have any idea what it’s like to go thru chemo, maintain a smile on your face for your daughter (look at your daughter lovingly wondering if you’ll live to see her graduate, get married) meanwhile you feel like you want to throw up for the next 3 days- talk about a REAL headache!! The message is she wants to remember EVERYTHING because life is a gift and too short. We should be thanking her; Instead of criticizing her for using the term "I remember" we should ALLL remember to never forget how precious life is, how precious the time we spend with our loved ones…is.

Its good to know there are still some decent people out there that recognize the seriousness of this story and offer their sincerest prayers. I am proud to say that I am one of them. Thank you for sharing this story and I will be praying for you, Meredith.

God Bless....

I just lost my dear seet mother to cancer. She fought a very hard battle, unfortunately she had the triple negative breast cancer. There is very little to treat that. I often think that our medical society could find a cure if they wanted. But why would they when Cancer treatment is such a lucrative industry. We need to write letter and demand that our government finds a cure.

I started reading this, then got really annoyed with all the "I remember". I remember scrolling down, seeing all the "I remember" still to go and just giving up. I remember writing this post. I remember hitting "post comment"

I know. Sorry to say I couldn't finish it. It hurt my head. Sounds like it would have been a good story but needs to be edited.

This made me cry. As a mom I can't even imagine the agony of preparing to leave your young child. A dear friend of mine passed away last year from Leukemia leaving behind her three children. It is unspeakable. Why rapists adulterers and child molesters are allowed to live and breathe and why good people are struck down leaving beautiful innocent children motherless and fatherless in unfathomable. Meridith I offer prayers up to the father almighty YHWH may he heal you so that you can go on to live a long healthy life and spread encouragement and hope for those fighting similar battles. >

This is my worst fear. I know, I could get hit by a bus tomorrow, yet I do not fear that. I do fear cancer. When I was little (not sure what age) my grandmother had it (breast)--but luckily beat it. When I was 19 my best friend died from it (she was 18--Neuroblastoma). When I was 27 my mom died from it -- she was 53 (ovarian). When I was 31 my husbands aunt died from it ...she was 67..(liver). When I was 34 my husbands uncle died from it ...he was 70...(colon). When I was 38 my husbands other aunt died from it ....she was 78 (not sure what kind). When I was 40 my husbands close friend died from it...he was 39 (liver). When I was 41 (last year) my uncle (mother's brother) died from it ...he was 53....(liver). When I was 42, not even a year ago, my mother-in-law died from it (colon). It has been around me my entire life. It scares me to no end.

For all of you chastising the author for the context of her article, it might do YOU well to REMEMBER she's just reciting all the important aspects of her life, and the moment it changes, that she remembers, but most importantly that she's reminding herself to fight, if only for her little girl and her husband. I thought it was a wonderful article and totally relate to the way in which she wrote it. Too bad the rest of you can't understand what a horrific moment it must've been to learn she had stage 4 breast cancer after just receiving a mammogram 6 mos before that was supposedly "clear"... Put yourself in her shoes before you criticize...
