'Watching your parent die is absolute hell,' woman opens up about father's painful death

A brave woman has decided to open up and tell how her experience was when she had to deal with her father's terminal illness and later with her death.

Christine Burke wrote about the traumatic moment when she learned that her father had cancer. The father called her one day by phone and revealed the sad news. According to ScaryMommy, all she could do was cling to the receiver and try to absorb what she had just heard.

In an instant, his world had staggered in the most unexpected way. The diagnosis of his father not only indicated that he suffered from cancer but also explained that the disease had managed to go unnoticed and for that reason had developed to reach the state 4.

His father not only had cancer, but he had little time left to live. There was not much that could be done; surgery to remove the cancer was not feasible, radiotherapy would not work, and only through chemotherapy could he extend the time he had left.

The most difficult part of all this for Christine was seeing the sudden transformation her dad had; He went from being a tall and imposing man to becoming a delicate cancer patient who suffered all the side effects of chemotherapy treatment.

Christine felt as if she herself were sick every time her father told her the long list of ailments and health complications that were slowly taking over her body.

"I'd lay awake at night and wonder if tomorrow was the day his health would go from bad to worse. When your parent is dying, you die inside right alongside them, "he said as he told his story.

According to Christine, the experience of her father's death, along with the whole process of deterioration due to the disease, taught her valuable life lessons.

She could see that a father will always do everything in his power to avoid the suffering of his children, and even when they finally rest in peace, we can continue to learn from them.

This story is very similar to that of Alicia, a woman who had to deal with her mother's breast cancer from the time she was 12 until she was an adult.
