Get your minds out of the gutter I’m talking Cancer not C U Next Tuesday. Pervs.
Anyway…it seems like cancer is one of those things that has touched everyone’s life in some form or fashion. Personally, having watched my Mom fight and then ultimately lose her battle with cancer makes me feel more affected than most.
I HATE cancer. I hate what it has done to my life, to my family, and to the world in general. I hate that there is a disease that is so wide spread and there is still no cure.
Not only does cancer affect the people who have the diease but it affects their loved ones as well. My Mom will have been gone for 12 years this coming summer and sometimes it still feels like yesterday.
I’m not one to show emotion and I would rather be sarcastic or make a joke than show you that I’m hurting. It comes with the territory I suppose. I never wanted to be the girl whose Mom died. I didn’t want people to feel sorry for me or treat me differently.
I hope I never know what it’s like to fight cancer but if I have to I can only hope I’m as strong as my Mom. She never looked sick…she lost weight but that’s about it. She never lost her hair and she was soooo thankful for that. It’s the little things in life. LOL!
I say all of this because I have been extended an invitation to an AMAZING event the hospital I work for is hosting. It’s called Cooks Tour of Argenta: Jazz Brunch and all proceeds of this brunch go to the UAMS Cancer Patients Support Programs. How awesome is that??!
I wish something like this had been around when my Mom needed it. I can’t wait to tell you more about it!! I am waaaaay too excited!!
How has cancer affected your life?
