Mother’s Journey Of Having A Son With Terminal Cancer


Only parents who have unthinkably lost their children will ever know the pain and suffering the death of their child can bring to their lives. And for one California mother, her young son was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and nothing she could do was going to stop its horrible descent into her son’s and her own life.

Although this story shows the heartbreak of this horrible tragedy, it also shows that absolutely nothing is as powerful as a parents love for their child.

Derek Colin Madsen was one of Cyndie French’s five kids, and he was born on November 16, 1994. And like what no other child should have to find out, at the tender age of 10, this young boy was going to discover that he had a rare form of cancer. And to make matters worse, it happened on Thanksgiving Day in 2004.
