Thank you, Cancer.

From where I stand, I’m looking at the sky and thinking of the seemingly unaware people around me.

Thank you, Cancer.

As I close my eyes, I remember my family members who have been torn from this world by cancer’s iron fist.

Thank you, Cancer.

Seemingly insignificant things such as walking across the street in mid-day traffic now seem a world away.

Thank you, Cancer.

My legs are paralyzed, my vision is gone – what is left to appreciate the falling snow, the shining sun and the stars in the sky?

Thank you, Cancer.

I am enveloped with love, I feel the grip of community bringing me back to life. Blood begins to flow through my veins.

Thank you, Cancer.

I am alive.
