Doing Something Yummy
The prompt: Yummy post. Do you know someone who has had cancer and survived?
Well, I guess Yes and No. Is that possible? I think so, I have known people beat cancer to go on and get a secondary cancer and unfortunately lose their battle. I like many don’t like to talk about the C word, almost pretend it doesn’t exist. I wish I was braver, but I don’t like to think about the devastation it can cause when someone doesn’t survive!
The one brief story I will share is that of my hubby’s uncle. He was diagnosed with throat cancer, he went through hellish treatment but he beat it! Sadly, there he has now been diagnosed with secondary cancer, and much to our denial this time it is terminal. But, do you know what – he is surviving, he is enjoying time with his wife, living his life and taking each day as it comes!
So do I know someone who has had cancer and has survived, no I know someone who has cancer and is surviving, we just have to take a bit of his attitude too and take each day as it comes!
