My Ordeal: Burnt And Sore Skin, This Is a Fight I Will Win!
Written by Michelangela Cammarata
The news was devasting, time stood still,
My heart had broken and I was about to climb a steep a hill.
I thought perhaps it would be more like a mountain,
as tears streamed down my cheek like a fountain.
And my emotions ran wild,
as I cringed and thought what about my child?
What had just happened? How could this be?
I was diagnosed with breast cancer, could God hear my plea?
Tests and waiting….
All this translating….
Surgery followed by some mental relief,
I prayed and then was hit with more disbelief…
Chemo they said,
I couldn't deal with all these thoughts in my head!
8 rounds of an IV in my arm,
I sat there and tried to remain calm.
Everyone telling me to remain positive,
As my hair diminished all from the cause of it.
It was a daily overload,
Burnt and sore skin,
I said this is a fight I will win!
Gradually starting to regain strength,
This is my life and I want to live it to a great length!
My love to those who helped and stood by,
I will never forget you as I reminisce and cry.
This ordeal was quite a challenge I had,
I have to move forward, I can't be mad.
I must live a full life every day,
Yes, I want to be here for the long stay!
I want to be here for my children and family,
Yet be healthy!
This experience can do a lot to someone,
Looking back I want to say this was a battle I won!
