My letter to Cancer.
We met in 2007. You changed my world and you touched my family and closest friends. You slowed my life and I had to put running, my workouts, walks, entertaining & cooking good food for my family & friends on hold.
But, you didn’t take my creativity.
I walked laps in the hospital with my family & friends pulling an IV pole to maintain some physical activity to keep me strong. When my platelets were good, I did body squats in a chair & push-ups on the counter in my hospital room.
You didn’t stop me there, my family ordered take out, so I could celebrate a wedding anniversary and a milestone birthday in the hospital.
When my blood counts were good, I went on a weekend pass and planned a freezer food party, so that I was prepared and strong enough to go back at it again for another round of intense treatment.
So, cancer, I’m just letting you know, you can be beat and we will bring you down! Together, we will stay strong & live long. 💜🙏🏽💜🙏🏽
