Recent Dear Cancer Messages

Dear Cancer, I will not stand quietly by and let you take my friends from me. I will stand by them as they fight you off and tell them I love them and I am there for them.

Yes, I lost a hair. But you know what? I realized that Hair is not the only way that will make you beautiful I boost some confidence that even tho I dont have hair I still can be beautiful in my own way.

Does anyone else feel like companies just use cancer as a way to play on emotions to sell their product? And, I'm not talking about during October. Like, I just saw an ad fora coffee creamer showing a woman who removes her wig as she prepares to go back to work, and the tagline is about courage. Yes, we've all been there- going out in public bald, returning to work, or returning to some semblance of a normal life. This ad, though, didn't leave me thinking about how I've been in that situation; rather, it left me feel upset, like how dare this company take something so personal just to sell their coffee creamer.

I had a port put in yesterday. The surgeon that put it in told me that it would feel like a sore muscle after working out. Well that's not quite how it feels it hurts really bad and it feels like I had surgery. Did anyone else go through a pain like this an port?
