Dear Cancer,

I met you in 2008 and you came into my life and took away parts of my life that I can never get back.  I looked you in the face and said I don’t care, you won’t win.  I kicked you out of my life then and you thought I was weak.

You came back for more in 2012 and again took away parts of my life that I can’t get back.  I have once again looked you in the face and this time I said I am not weak, you will not win and you are not welcome to any more parts of my life, my body or my soul.

I am telling you now for the last time, you need to stay away from me and don’t even think about coming after my family.  If you come after them you have no idea the wrath you will encounter from me.  I have proven to you my strength and determination to not allow you to win, so I suggest you not even try to play the game anymore!

Thank you for visiting me twice and making me realize the things that are important to me and showing me how to be strong in the face of adversity.  You showed me that people care about people no matter who they are. You brought out the good in people around me and made me a better giver of myself.  You humbled me in forcing me to ask for help.  For those things I thank you, but you have done your job and I must ask you to leave now and never look back!

I will not miss you when you are gone –


Sincerely –
