Dear Cancer, You Were Never Invited

Dear Cancer,

A year ago you had the audacity to just storm into my life. You were never invited and you were definitely not expected. You just came in anyway. You have such nerve. Who does that? You have been really tough on me, but I tried to be tougher. You made me face fears I wasn’t ready for. You have made me both weaker and stronger, as ironic as that sounds. You shattered me into a million pieces, but you also ignited a fierce fire inside me that I never knew existed. You taught me not to take life for granted, but only after you frightened me into a world of chaos. You made me fear my life, but you also made me find my reason to fight and my purpose to keep going. You still have a little control of my life—I’m not sure if that will change as the years go by—but I hope I will always be strong enough to stop you. You may have broken me in more ways than one, but I will keep fighting. You will never be welcome around here, so just leave. And make sure you close the door firmly behind you.

Wholeheartedly by Sandy.
