Dear Cancer, Thank you for changing my life. At first, it changed in the most horrible ways -- abandoning my baby for a year long clinical trial, a broken broken body, a knife dangling above my head, but once the ashes of that carnage were swept away, the most amazing blessings and experiences poured in because you gave me no choice but to change the things that helped you grow in the first place. I'm grateful to never need your lessons again.
Dear Cancer, you showed up uninvited. No thanks to that. You have caused me years of anxiety, fear, pain, and loss. Guess what? You still didn't win. I am still alive. Guess what again? I have lived 5 years since that day you showed up when I was 32. You think you may have robbed me of some of my youth and I almost....almost let you take that. Then I thought about it and realized, if I let you steal, then you keep going, you keep chasing, and you get all cocky that you think you got this one. News flash - YOU LOSE. I WIN.
You always seem to show up at the worst times. You took over my body for two and half years and robbed me of my childhood. Then you decided to move on to my sweet grandpa who wouldn't let you win either. Just when I thought my family was invincible to you, you took my dad from us way too early. Why did you choose him and not me? Eff you, Cancer. Eff you.
Dear Cancer; Though my life will never be the same, and I'm ok, now, with you stopping by, it really ticks me off that you hurt the people I love, and changed their lives too. You're a greedy one. My port is out, my hair is growing, that 50lbs lost is going to stay off(thanks for that), and the cancer song I wrote is in the hands of some musicians who will try to make a difference. Up yours, Cancer.
I hate how you have already begun to ruin my credit. I owe tens of thousands of dollars and I have only been diagnosed 1 month ago. I am keeping a positive attitude in spite of you, but you suck. I am in tears after talking to my insurance company. Thanks a lot you asshole.
Dear cancer, because of you, in the past 18 years, I have 500 stitches, 7 titanium plates, 46 nails in my body. Now, people call me Iron Man. I can't take any more surgeries. But I want to donate my body alive for cancer research for people to against you. https://www.facebook.com/ironmaninchina
Dear cancer You came to me when I was 10 years old and left me two years later, your name was Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I was glad that you were finally out of my life. After you were gone I dealt with sexual abuse for 5 years, bullying, and homelessness. But guess what? After all of that I'm still here. You know what I want to do now? I'm going to college to become an OBGYN. You didn't win, none of my situations did. I'm raising money to accomplish my dreams and you and my past will never stop me. Dear cancer I made it and you will never win.
Dear Cancer, I am a Supporter, my Dad has lung cancer and I'm also supporting the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event, Charlotte, NC, October 17, 2015. "i thought you should know this for your information" But we will continue to fight the fight against CANCER that you think you're gonna win! You're already BEAT!!!!
Dear Cancer, I hate you! You entered my life during pregnancy and disrupted the joy of childbirth. I had no time to bond with or care for my baby. To destroy you, I had surgery, radiation and chemo which robbed my fertility. I felt so sick during the entire 7 months of treatment. But what's worse is the emotional rollarcoaster that follows after treatment - fear of recurrence, esteem issues, guilt of not being there for baby. I hate you! Burn in hell cancer! I wish you are long dead by now and never return! I have God by my side and He will eradicate you!!!
Dear Cancer, told you... told you not once, not twice, but multiple times you weren't welcome. Told you that you didn't have me...you NEVER DID! I am NOW in REMISSION! I can never get tired of saying that... you SUCK! Stay gone! And, I WON!
DEAR CANCER,I am a survivor twice. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor September 1998. To follow an 11 1/2 hour surgery. I had a tumor right frontal lobe. Most removed, a short hospital stay. Diagnosed Lymphoma, Harborview in Seattle. Returned home for radiation and Chemotherapy. Quite aggressive treatments. Have been cancer free for 17years. A loving and supportive husband got me through that first year of recovery. Lots of support from sisters and brothers. Many prayers sent my way. I did have faith that I could get through this and be stronger. I had been cancer free for 17 years until a mammogram this year found I had cancer in both breats and some soft tissue. Here we go again with chemotherapy. I felt I was home free after so long a time. I have gotten excellent treatment and support from family and friends once again. My oncologist is a saint. Could not have faced this without her treatment and friendship and follow up every single year since the first diagnosis. I am now in remission. Have been told this is not curable but will be able to keep me in remission. I don't want to scare my survivor friends. But I do want to say that no matter what your story is or what cancer you have fought, you must continue to have a mammogram every year forever. That one test has saved my life. I know I will beat this thing awful turn of events in my life. Keep fighting and never give up!!! A survivor and a fighter.
Hey Cancer. I just wanted to tell you this one thing. You think you got the best of me, think you've had the last laugh. Bet ya think that everything good is gone. Think you left me broken down, think that I'd come running back? Baby you don't know me cause you're dead wrong. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger! With that being said, you made it to where I could only have one child. In some ways, I should thank you for that. Some people don't even get a chance to have one child. I did, and I thank God for her everyday. Thanks to you Cancer, I'll always think about raising more kids, and I'll think about the four babies that I lost, to my dying day. So guess what. You came, my family and I fought, I won! Have you figured it out yet that I'm mad? I am angry at you. I won though so, Cancer, you can kiss my ass because you didn't bully me for very long, and I beat you.
Dear Cancer, It's been quite sometime since I wrote to you. I just wanted to say that I can't stand you! You took so much from me, but I refuse to let you win. You will never win. Someday my voice will be heard because THYROID CANCER IS NOT* THE GOOD CANCER!! There is NO such thing as a GOOD CANCER!
Dear Cancer I hate you!!!15 years ago you took the love of my life. I watched you drag him down until he finally met God and gained enough strength from God to die with dignity. But now you are back--only this time it's me you are after. Two times in less than 3 months. Really the uterine leiomyosarcoma wasn't enough now you are after my pancreas. It is hard to fight you with only God in my corner. But I hang on to Mandisa's Overcomer song--Two rare cancers and I will still over come you with God's help and strength!
Dear Cancer, On August 6th of last year, my birthday I was fighting you. This year on my birthday I already kicked your ass! God is so ah-mazing and He loves me and was with me when I beat you down. Now, I get to rebuild my life with the family that I cherish and love for a very long time...
