Cancer gave me an understanding of the point of all this. To survive. Most of our lives it is easy but for the moments when it becomes difficult, when accident or sickness or sadness strikes, it's just about remembering one thing. You must simply survive.
Due to my weakened immune system from the said treatments, I was forced to become jailed in my own house for fear of going out in public.
I never let anyone see me cry or feel sorry for myself. Attitude and the will to live is so important during and after treatment that if you don't have a good attitude or a strong will to live, treatment doesn't work.
If cancer was a mugger you would at least throw a punch. What's different?
Why does chemo always have side effects like sickness and hair loss? Why not 'invisibility' or 'spontaneous orgasms'?
Cancer is a fight to the death. Either you kill it, or it will kill you. Get ready to brawl.
We all have two lives. The second one starts when we realise we only have one.
Don't delegate your survival to the doctors and hope for the best. You have to participate in your own cure. You have to fight.
You have to fight, because if you don't, you let the opponent win, and if your opponent is cancer, the results can be deadly.
Did you notice the smile on a cancer patient's face after the last treatment? That's the smile you want on your face.
