    Saying Goodbye To Dad - Part Two.

    This morning July 15th 2013 at 08:15 AM my father passed away after three years of battling cancer. After his spirit had left his withered husk, he was left with a smile on his face, which gave us all a measure of relief. The medical staff wondered how he had managed to hold on...

    Dear Mom

    You are my life, my motivation and my hero. I am so very proud of you for staying strong, I'm very proud of you for getting better. You're such an inspiration to me and to Catie. I love you so much and I just hope that you know this ever day. :)

    When you die, it does not mean

    that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live. Stuart Scott

    I hate cancer, I have seen what cancer has done

    to, too many of my close friends, and its horrible. Cancer is a slow killing disease, or a fast killing disease, I just wish we could find a cure for cancer.

    my grandma had different types of cancer.

    She passed away 4 years ago. Not of cancer, though. I guess it was because her body couldn't take it anymore. We miss her. She was an amazing woman.

    June 1st was the worst day of my life.

    My daughters mom passed. We have struggled so hard and then December 3rd I found out I have cancer. I don't have any idea how to deal with this and look strong. I dont know how to make Christmas seem happy for her. She's only 14 and doesn't deserve this.... I hate this for her.

    It just that we all have cancer cells in the

    body, so few that can't be detected by machines and tests. The way we live can give these few cancer cells to trigger, to grow and to spread in our body.

    Do you believe this? Cancer day was yesterday, right? If it was, then it's weird how they've finally found a cure. Although it would be brilliant if they have! Bit of a bummer, though, for someone what's already dead... Like Alan Rickman!😩
