Yes that is right, Cancer SUCKS! I will say it as many times I can over and over again and then pray at the sametime that things get better and fast. To keep the personal information out of this and to respect this person’s privacy I won’t be telling you the who or the wheres but more and doing the best I can with out it.
Cancer is an evil word, evil disease and it sucks. It takes the lives of people we love, friends, family and people who have great hearts. A few months back someone close to me was diagnosed with cancer, it was really one of the scariest days of my life hearing those words uttered from their mouth “Lauren, I have cancer”. I wanted to fall to the ground and just cry but I am proud to say I didn’t and I didn’t let the fear, shock and pain that went through me be seen by the person telling me. Treatment was done and the words “The cancer is gone” were said. One of the happiest things I have heard and then this past week that happiness was shot back down when the words “the cancer is back” were said to me. It took me a bit to register, and I am sure they could tell by my delayed response but all I could think of was what pain would or could come to them with the next steps to treat this awful disease and how I wished (and still do) that I could wave a magic wand and make it all go away for them. The next few months they will have treatment and I am praying so hard that they are able to beat it once and for all. I am holding out hope that when the doctors have said it was caught early enough that it really and truly was and that the cancer will be beaten once and for all because this person is one of the most amazing people I know. They are strong, motivated, loved by many, loves many, caring, funny, fun to be around, inspirational, a friend, a parent, a sibling, a spouse a grandparent and absolutely amazing person who I know if anyone can beat this evil disease and kick it in the behind they can. My heart breaks for them and the friends and family that they have and that this evil disease is interrupting the amazingness that this person has to offer everyone that crosses their path.
As I said before, Cancer sucks!
