In the latest issue of J-14, Jennette McCurdy discussed about how she felt when she heard the horrible news that her mother ‘s cancer had returned and had spread throughout her body to her sinuses, lymph nodes, ribs, spine, and pelvis. It has gotten worse since May when she learned that the cancer was now in Debra McCurdy’s brain and she has to go through aggressive chemotherapy.
Here’s what Jennette had to say:
“At first, I honestly felt shocked and numbed. I don’t think you ever imagine that something that horrific could happen twice. I felt sad all the time and there were times when I felt angry. The entire situation sort of hits me in waves – I feel the worst when it’s quiet and I’m alone but that is also the time when I process it the most. I had always always had a great relationship with my family and good friends, but the entire situation just strengthened those bonds. Small stupid things that once seemed so important are now trivial and inconsequential because I have a totally different perspective. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Focus on the good, Enjoy little things. Remeber it’s not ‘uncool’ to love your family.”
