Today is World Cancer Day and I thought I would take a moment to reflect. It has been almost six years since my diagnosis and I can’t believe how truly lucky I have been. If you had told me on the first day I went in for chemo back in 2010 that this is where I would be in 2016 I would never have believed it.
The fact that I am still living with this illness functional and happy is more then one can ask for in life. It is the trials that make us stronger. I hear people complain that cancer is evil. It’s not evil. It just is. It is life, cancer is, like me just trying to survive. Unfortunately its using my body to do so.
Thank you, to all the people who support me, who care for me, who laugh with me, who cry with me, who listen when I’m frustrated. You don’t realize what you truly have until you are put to the test.
I haven’t shared a cancer comics in quite some time. But I still make them often. It is a great coping mechanism.
