Why do you think your mom has never tested for Breast Cancer?
She surely knows about it. She might even know women who have gone through it. She knows it can be detected and treated. Yet she won’t go for that test. Granted, she’s stubborn. She is impossible to convince. She just doesn’t listen.
But. Could it be that she is afraid? Maybe she fears the results.Maybe she fears the test itself. Maybe she has heard how painful it is.
Think about it.
Which mom ever admits her own fears to her children? Mom is the fearless one, right? The solver, not the problem. She worries about you, but the reverse is unthinkable for her.
Did you know that 90% Breast Cancer cases can be treated if detected early? Now that you know, what will you do about it? Yes, you’ve tried convincing her.But have you thrown a tantrum? Like the one you threw when you wanted that new phone. Have you tried scolding her? Like you did when she called your friends because you didn’t take her calls.
Surely saving your mom’s life deserves more than ‘I tried’.
Maybe just holding her hand and telling her how much you love her,
what her taking this test means to you, will do it. Maybe all you have to do is hug her till she agrees.
Which mom can ever say no to her child’s love?
