One of my aunties will be undergoing surgery for breast cancer tomorrow. Another dear friend of my mom’s is deep in her battle. A dear and treasured friend’s mum just had surgery for uterine cancer last week. There’s more, but you get the point. I’ve watched cancer ravage friends and family and take a toll on people I love, this year.
I’ve seen people die of cancer and live after cancer.
I am sick of cancer.
I feel worried and sad and filled with all manner of unspeakable fears about it and the people I care about. A lot of the time.
Today I found this post, about dealing with cancer.
And I just wanted to share it, in light of everything. Because it made me smile and cry and think and it is worth reading.
