From Living Life Loving Us …
No matter who you are, where you’re from, or how much money you’ve got in the bank, you know someone or ARE someone who has been affected by it. Cancer doesn’t care what you’ve done with your life, how good or bad of a person you are, or how many people it will hurt if it takes you.
Cancer can’t beat everyone though. Both my mom and husband are doing beyond well these days. My mom fought quite the fight and has been in remission for 17 years from breast cancer. My husband was beyond lucky and his cancer was caught nearly accidentally which saved his life from something that had a 2% survival rate. Also, in all of the sadness at the hospital, I get to see glimmers of hope and relief in those that are winning the fight.
Cancer is a word that touches everyone, BUT what cancer taught me about life, about money, is something I am almost thankful for.
