Jennette McCurdy: Shocked & Angry at Cancer

Jennette McCurdy: Shocked & Angry at Cancer

…and there’s a good reason.

Jennette McCurdy opened up about her mom’s — and her own — fight with cancer in a feature on the Wall Street Journal website.

The 18-year-old actress writes, “I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for my mother to tolerate all she has gone through and continues to go through ” the pain, the worry and the battle. She wakes up every day hurting and goes to sleep hurting even more. My mother, the constant optimist and effervescent, sprightly woman I know her to be, is caged along with this hideous beast they call cancer.”

“Cancer takes its toll on the patient’s whole family. I went into a state of shock when I learned her cancer had returned. Of course, I grew up knowing her medical history but I was so young when she was first diagnosed that my age had protected me from really knowing what this meant. But not this time,” she continued.

    . . . . your Mom is a survivor. She’ll be stronger than ever
    after treatment. You two have been thru a lot. She’s not
    done with you. Your just gettin started. This is an interruption
    in life that will require adjustments by everyone, but with
    her intensly optimistic outlook for the future, this too will pass.
    I’m just back from high-dose radiation/chemo and stem cell
    transplant where they blasted my immune system into the
    stone-age and I’m feeling close to normal already, just
    months out. Good caregivers and attitude are everything.
    Don’t be discouraged by this part of the journey. Take pride
    in your successful recovery. Bounce back soon DMac..!
