On an Island Far Away From Home

I don’t think I can think of anything more isolating than having cancer and ongoing treatment in a foreign land away from home, friends, and family.


Dear Cancer, Thank You, But Never Come Back

by Mandy Brixey June 28, 2023

Dear Cancer,

It’s been nearly a year since you were evicted. I don’t miss you. But that doesn’t mean I’m grateful for this experience with you. So I wanted to write a letter to tell you my feelings. While you stayed silent, I still have my voice, both literally and figuratively. I won’t let you just leave without my feelings being known.
