Dear Cancer, You truly have proven to be a bitch! You invaded my life without an invitation! I did the treatments needed to end your life within me..and now the Surgeons will cut you out of me and end your lifeline to me. In 2 days I will show you who is boss! So just FYI..pack your bags as I have had enough of your BS! Thanks, Tracy
You tried to hurt me, push me in a corner, and take away my personality. But guess what? I won! I beat you and just like the mean girl that stole your boyfriend in high school, I'm flaunting it! My 25 week baby bump, after you took my hair, and my boobs, shows everyone that you are NOT in control..my God is!! So there. :P
Dear C - I have been able to keep you away for a year and five months now. I've made some healthy changes, and I like to think they're working for me -- at least mentally they help. You are not an obsession anymore, but I still think about you everyday; you had such an impact on my life that I am glad I do because it keeps me aware. I hope I never have to deal with you again.
Dear cancer, I wish i had not been introduced to you at such a young age. I was very scared when we first met but I knew as a christian god would get me through this. Even though you have taken many things from me God will restore all the happiness and joy you took from me during my fight. I believe God healed me from your sorry self so I could be an advocate for others who have to deal with you you sorry excuse for a disease!! You will NOT get the best of me despite my family history. I hope to never see you again anywhere in myself. I have beaten you down for nearly two years and i will continue to fight forever! You have shown me though how strong I can be in myself so I do thank you for that at least.
Dear cancer, you will not beat us. Joey is stronger than you, and he will survive and thrive. You have not made him weak; you've made him strong, and given him purpose to fight, and inspired him to go after his dreams. You might as well give up and GO AWAY because we're never going to stop fighting!
Over two years now free of hairy cell leukemia. Got my picture in the local paper (Page, Arizona)walking the survivor's lap at our Relay for Life. Second year - feel a lot better than post-chemo last year. Our purple survivor shirts say "I Am Hope" Pretty cool. I'm in the top right of the picture just in front of the folks in the very corner. Wearing my Isle of Skye tartan kilt and the purple survivor shirt. Kilted to Kick Cancer! http://s237.photobucket.com/user/riverkilt/media/ USA%20Kilts%20C%20Isle%20of%20Skye/ RelayforLife2013toprightBIG_zpsf62acec3.jpg.html http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/ff147/riverkilt/ USA%20Kilts%20C%20Isle%20of%20Skye/ RelayforLife2013toprightBIG_zpsf62acec3.jpg Such a joy to hate cancer and be able to survive it and share the hope. Really wanna make up some bumper stickers that say FUCK Cancer! (hope that doesn't break the rules here - its how I feel)
Dear Cancer, to put it nicely YOU SUCK! I miss my life, I miss my friends, I miss being normal, but most of all I miss being/feeling healthy. Some days its really hard living with you. Some days I wish I could just sleep and wakeup when all this is over and some days I really don't like my life and how it is right now. Most importantly I want you to know that even though you may be taking my some days right now its all about to end. I want you to know I'm going to come back STRONGER, happier, have a better love for life and be an all around better person. I just want you to know that just because you might be getting the best of me now doesn't mean you will have the best of me for any significant amount of time. I WILL beat you.
Hey, Cancer. I am tired of you going after all the people I love. You took my Grandma when she was only 67. It took you three tries to take my Mama, but you were only successful when she was 87 years old and not able to fight any more. You have come after dear friends and I am tired of the funerals. You have come after me twice, but you have not won. I hate how you take my joy away but I will get that back too. I have many scars and lingering effects. You know you are on your way out and you are trying to create as much destruction you can before your defeat. But defeated you will be!
Cancer, why did you come and ruin my plans? I loved my job and I enjoyed going to work every day. I did good financially and was set to take on a second job to save more for retirement. Well cancer you had to show your ugly head and destroy my whole life! I am tired of being tired all the time and no one really understands what you are going through. They think you look fine so you should be fine. They don't understand how you hurt and how tired you get and how weak that I am now. I HATE it. I was ALWAYS so active and I can't hardly stand this not being able to do things that I was used to doing. Cancer, PLEASE go away!!!
