not sure I would ever call you (dear) Cancer as I would never like to associate myself with you . whilst coping with you I also had to grieve for 4 family members and you made everything so hard to cope with you took away so much from me but believe you me I WILL TAKE IT BACK
You are not as scary as people make out. Don't get me wrong - you suck! But so do lots of other illnesses. I'm sick of you being demonised - you're just a bunch of wonky cells. I'm tired of you dominating the conversation. I'm fed up with the the concept of survivor. I'm horrified by how people are so afraid of you - so that even the word makes them run in fear. Cancer - there are other things far more important than you - like support, rehabilitation and recovery... Now, that's a conversation I'd much rather have.
Cancer, you are no dear. You think you cause fear? Maybe you do but I will no longer be blue because of you! I am a Warrior, an Anal Cancer Warrior! I have won. You are undone! I have my life. I will not let you cause me anymore strife. I will attest that I will not rest until I spread the word far & near for all to hear- if you have a change in your stool, don't be a fool! Tell your doctor, tell him today, tell him, tell him I say. For he will order a colonoscopy today! And if you are scared because your a _ _ will be bared, let me tell you my story of burns so severe, that I screamed in pain each time I had to poop or pee it brought me to my knees! Let me tell you my story, my story of cancer! Why have a colonoscopy if you notice a change in your poop? I'll give you the answer, it could be cancer!
Dear cancer, I didn't need you to make me strong I was strong enough before! With a young family who needs me you made last year horrendous, but I have been amazed at friends and family who have pulled together whilst I concentrated on my battle with you. I am somewhat wrapped up in fear that you may return but know this, you are not welcome and we do not want you in our lives. We will do everything to help irradiate you from everyone's life. Stay away.
Dear cancer you were such a sneaky rotten creep you came on suddenly tried to steal me from my husband and my parents brother and sisters my grandmom and all my in-laws the tears everyone shead including me at the shock however you loistbig time you have my finances in ruins but I have my life and inGods time it will all work out you also were mean to my uncle johnny my granny and my uncle Dan and my friends Karma is coming for you !!!!!! As far as work the mean people there are getting there karma too someday
Dear Cancer, I hate you. You have plagued my family for decades. You took my uncle at 6, tried to take my mother 11 years ago and tried to take me away from my husband and two boys last year. I learned you might try and take my kids in the future too. I hope they find a way to kill you like you have taken so many. Screw you cancer!
Dear cancer, You took my father when I was 16. You took my mother when I was 36. You have taken my cervix, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and 23 lymph nodes! But I still have my sense of humor (even growing back hair, eyebrows and eyelashes). Please leave the rest of my family ALONE
Cancer: I will not tolerate your invasion of my body any longer. I have been in treatment since September of 2012. You disgust me! Your vile, arrogant attempt to break me is over! I'm sick and tired of the tears you produce, the families you wreak havoc on. I'm working full time and will continue to do so throughout your ugly tyrade. I despise you with every ounce of my being and will stop at nothing until you are destroyed! 03-31-15
A Scare Became A Scar By: Cindy Schwend Tedesco (2015) My vertical scar was crimson on my skin, 75 staples were stapled in. The scar was dark then, it saved my life – it’s where my darling surgeon skillfully used her knife. I have no tattoos but I have my scar, it holds many stories like a tightly sealed jar. The scar has miraculously faded now, when I glance at it, I’m reminded how…it’s not a defect upon my skin, for it’s within those cracks where the light gets in. This scar is mine and my second chance, I am not a victim of circumstance. I’ve come to accept this scar on my belly where I’ve liberally applied the aloe vera jelly. My vertical scar was crimson on my skin, but the soul inside is determined to win. The scar was dark then; but then the healing came and renewed my strength like a refreshing rain. A scar from a scare when I lost the “e”, it wasn’t the only thing removed from me.
(Dear is not the word)cancer, I am OK but not the same. I have lost mother, grandmother, sister,and my breasts. You are senseless. You stole from us. I beat you. Go to hell and take every cigarette on earth with you- never again want to smell them or see anyone help you one bit. I want a world where survivors are seen fully as equal and cared about. I hope through this site that you are forced to give me the gift of community.
Dear Cancer, you cruel,bastard of a disease. I have been walking around carrying you 19 months non aware due to the negligence of a doctor at a hospital who decided it wasn't a "big" enough spot to tell me about.. now its a mass that has grown almost 2in in size, in my nodes and am being told I will probably lose my right lung. I have TWO beautiful daughters who need me. You are Un-Invited you ass! BRCA has done this to me, and I gave everything I could to it, my ovaries, my breasts and I'm only 35. So I will fight and I will win. Sincerely, Me *nsclc*
Dear cancer: I should hate you. I should despise you to my very core for what you have put me through, for what you have put my friends and my family through. But I don't. Although you have taken many friends from me, you have blessed me with them in the first place and for that I thank you. These friends made me stronger, made me better, made me happy and made me unbeatable. So thank you cancer, for allowing me to grow with these people. Bet you didn't see that one coming did you?
