Cancer sucks...

Thoughts about losing people to cancer:

Yet another bright soul lost to this unforgiving disease.

I've lost 3 very influential people to cancer:
My grandmother
Great aunt
my very 1st journalism professor.

I know people who are living with it right now, and I can only hope the best for them.
Its such a tricky thing. It can hide, grow, scatter, disappear, reappear... it can take a life as fast as it can be removed.

For both my grandma and my aunt, it was found early and removed... but came back later. When it comes back... its hard to know what to do next since your body is exhausted from treating it the first time.

My journalism professor had pancreatic cancer. He died only a month after doctors found it. I literally found out about his cancer this past wednesday... and he was gone Monday night. Five days.

Days count. Moments count. The things you write are still left behind once you are physically gone.


  1. Moms got cancer.

    She found it. Doctor confirmed a tumor.

    Squinting, teary eyes.

    Driving her to the hospital.

    It was scary.

    Surgery to have it removed.

    Medicine that made her hair fall out and made her sick.

    But still my mom, still pretty in my eyes.

    I was sad.

    The thought of loosing her at a young age.

    The people she'd leave behind.

    With the prayers of friends & family.

    With the help of god.

    She gets a little better.

    The feeling of happiness.

    The anxious wait for good results at the Hospital.

    Shes Happy.

    Shes in remission.

    Everyday thinking of it coming back.

    Very painful.

    The thougt of others with cancer.

    I know what your going through.

    My prayers are with you.

    Find Jesus, let him set you free.

    Live everyday to the fullest.

    Life is like a wave, you can't change the way it breaks, only the way you ride it..
