First Week of Cancer

August 02, 2019

I have Cancer.

That's cancer with the big C.  The kind of cancer that when they tell you that it is present, you can't hear anything else after that word.  The kind of cancer where you get exhausted from trying to convince people that you are going to be okay.  

That kind of Cancer.  

I feel too young.  I feel guilty for every piece of candy I have eaten.  I feel dumb for not realizing cancer was so present in my genetics.  

I want to laugh more.  I want to dream again.  I want to travel and to see the world.  I want to spend every morning having a cup of coffee outside in nature.  I want write, enjoy the comedy of life and to spend time with my family.

So that my first week of cancer.
