You never assume you will hear those words. I have Cancer
You never imagine the sound of silence on the phone seconds before you are told that someone you love has been diagnosed.
You never imagine that beyond the diagnosis can be hope, love, support, and yes even a dash of luck.
You never imagine them being strong enough to bear it.
You never imagine being strong enough to take up the banner and help them fight the fight ahead.
You never imagine that someone you have relied on will rely on you!
BUT YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE IT, YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR FEELINGS ASIDE AND YOU DEAL WITH IT!
You cry, you stare in disbelief and are angry.
You are weak and cry and ask why.
You do endless research into what all is involved (education is power)
You realize you are blessed because it was caught early and thank God that it was.
You realize that beneath the brave face, they are scared and need you.
You realize that each moment is a gift, precious and rare, never to be taken for granted.
You realize that they will survive!

*This is for the cancer survivors and their families...... we all have hope, and for now there are treatments, someday there will be a cure! As we walk in relay for life this summer (My local Relay for life is this weekend) Lets keep fighting hard for that cure! This year Relay for Life has a new meaning as my mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer (we were blessed that it was caught VERY early).
