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?

Dear Cancer, I used to say "f* you, cancer." Now I thank you, cancer. You were a cruel teacher, but you taught me well.

Dear Cancer, every time I have to go see my doctors(more times than I can keep track) you steal the strength and determination I have fought so hard to build. U put fear inside me that I thought I beat down. I hate you for that.

Do you fear reoccurrence? Does that fear every go away? I finished radiation 4 months ago and all I do is fear it is coming back. Anyone else have this problem?

Does anyone else have trouble connecting to other people?

Dear Cancer, 44 years ago you thought you'd kill me, but you lost. HA! All you did was make me stronger. You'll probably try again, but it's no use. You will lose again. You suck.

Dear Cancer, Fuck you for not letting me sleep at night wondering if you're still in there somewhere.

Dear Cancer, You suck. And the virus you came in on sucks. And the fact that I had my yearly Pap tests and you hid from them sucks. I don't know what message you have for me, but please do tell because I WILL NOT let you kill me. You messed with the wrong chick...

"Have you heard of or tried cupping after a #cancer-related surgery?
Dr. Jun Mao, Chief of the Integrative Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, explains it like this: "Cupping is a common technique used in traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional cupping includes using flame to create heat, as the hot air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum suction. Cupping can be used to treat muscle aches or common colds in China. Cupping leaves classic bruises that typically resolve in 5 to 7 days."
