Cancer. Lives are changed – some for better – some for worse. Either way – definitely changed! I believe that anyone who has experienced this will agree. I believe the more we stick together and help, the sooner we will find a cure for this monster. Cancer has changed me. I have watched family and friends fight the toughest battle ever. I have watched many lose that battle. I believe I have learned that nothing is guaranteed and every day is a chance to be a better person and to give back. I believe I now try to live by that mantra and I believe some day there will be people who cannot relate to this because cancer will be ancient history. Until then…I believe in hope!
