CANCER BLOWS! You can’t really prevent it, you definitely can’t stop it altogether, and not only does it take lives and cause the most horrific heartache, but it sucks the victim, and most times their families, completely dry; emotions, time AND money. Did I mention that CANCER SUCKS!?
Okay, there, I just had to get that out of the way because there’s no good phrase or sentence for me to use to start this post. And to be honest, when I’m about to get emotional, I turn towards being angry, instead of just being sad… I’m sure that says something about me. lol.
A few weeks ago I was laying in bed flipping through my Instagram feed, when I came across this:
I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it is for me to sit here and write this, and even worse, insert and collage these pictures. It literally breaks my heart, because of course, I think about my own sweet baby girls and how I would possibly feel if any of them were going through this; I’m a complete, sobbing mess.
” I know it may not be easy for you to read about all of this or look at certain Childhood Cancer photos but how do you think it feels to write about it, to live it? I would much rather be spending precious minutes with my daughter who is fighting for her precious life. It is not easy for you to read, well it is not easy for us to live, or even talk about for that matter, but the truth is, Cami can’t do it herself. I have to do it for her. How do you think it would make her feel if she heard someone say “sorry sweetheart but it’s just too sad to read about your reality”. Well, I’m sick of that mind set, I really am! So here’s what you can do to help Cami and other children with childhood cancer!“
