In praise of “other mothers”
Maynes says that her biological mother left when she was a year old and was in and out of her and her sister's life until she was 12. "She struggled with addiction and passed away three years ago," she said.
One of the greatest things Maynes learned from Momma was to always look for the good in people, she says. "She never judged anyone. She was strong as heck, too."
"Momma had many health problems before her cancer diagnonsis. I watched her fight through treatment with very little complaints."
