On May 27, 2003 my life changed forever. I lost the most amazing woman, my best friend, my mother to a fight with stage 3 lung cancer. She was only 45 years old. She passed away 1 week before my prom, & 2 weeks before my high school graduation.

My mother Carmetta Slaughter was diagnosed with lung cancer late 2001, given only 6 months to live, & she never smoked in her life. She was a woman of faith, strength, courage, giver, compassion, and everyone who new her loved her dearly. She was the nicest person you could meet,& she would literally take the shirt off her back if anyone needed it.

December 2002, we received reports that the cancer had went into remission, & I was so moved by her faith because she would tell everyone even doctors that God would heal her. March 2003 they found more cancer in the lungs, and she was diagnosed with pneumonia. Everyday I would see her at the hospital & she always smiled and never complained. The only things she asked for was to see her family, fried okra & a chocolate fudge Sunday from Big Boy's :). I praise God because He did perform a miracle in her life; the doctors report was only 6 months of life when diagnosed, BUT God's report was giving her almost two years after her terminal diagnosis!!

When she went to be with the Lord, I felt the most horrific pain ever. My Only parent was gone, & I felt so alone, lost & confused. I wanted to die too. But through PRAYER, the Lords hand, true salvation, my family, friends, & DWO church I was able to be healed & restored. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her & I can still hear her beautiful laugh echoing in my ear. But now I can breathe & rest in the fact that I will see her again. I love you mommy! Gone but never forgotten!
