Cancer

If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

Just keep swimming.  Something Joan is very good at.

Thanks G Cat and Joan.  Could hardly see most of them for the tears.  My favorite uses a quote from one of my favorite movies:

Thanks to Joan for sharing this in another A|N group; it belongs here too!

"Meet Dan. Every Wednesday and Thursday, he heads to local Cancer Centers and buys a cup of coffee for each patient, nurse, doctor, and everyone in between... straight from his own pocket."

LOL, wonderful idea!

My energy window is at best 4 or 5 hours, so I'm lucky there. How about a sloth party in a sunny beechwood? We'll hang in the trees, watch the light on the leaves and feel good while doing nothing. I'll bring some food.

A ha! the pacemaker is for me too!

Daniel, just to set the frame, here is a thought for the day in the form of a photo, to relax, enjoy the resting time, and know your body is working, even if you are not.

Patricia, you have guided me well on my cancer challenge, and your experience of having a 2 hour window seems to be true for me as well. We grocery shop once a week and I come home exhausted. I have the privilege to nap for the remainder of the day, and not everyone can do that.
