My Cancer Road (revisited)

Posted by

Going through my files on the computer I came across something I wrote six years ago. I don't remember writing it, so the words may not be (wholly) mine, but I hope those of you just starting down this road find inspiration and hope.


I became a cancer victim

I am a cancer patient

I will be a cancer fighter

I hope to be a cancer survivor

I will not travel this road alone

Behind me I will have

  • The tireless efforts of researchers
  • The knowledge and skill of the doctors, surgeons and nurses
  • The help and information of MacMillan and other support organisations
  • The love and care of my closest family
  • The practical help of friends and neighbours
  • The prayers of those who believe
  • The words of support;  the “likes” and “shares” of friends, friends of friends, colleagues and acquaintances – the number of which is overwhelming

Counting the days, making every day count.
