I posted this on my facebook page and wanted to share it here.
This post is to honor a friend who asked me to post. And I must preface it with this. There are some types of cancer no one seems to talk about in The General Public because they are uncomfortable with it.
So while skin or brain or breast or blood or various other organs that have cancer are mentioned easily, even colon cancer is mentioned, there are some that are not.
When when it comes to rectal cancer or anal cancer, Or vulva or vaginal cancer it is different because most people are not particularly comfortable saying the names or talking about it.
I don’t know what kind of cancer is in the family of the friend that asked me to post but I’m taking this opportunity to talk about anal cancer.
Anal cancer in particular because the ravages of post-treatment are simply ungodly, particularly the after effects from radiation which seem to be permanent for most people.
And although my information comes from a cancer blog site it nevertheless has raised my awareness of the strength and courage and determination and sheer stamina of people with this particular kind of cancer.
To endure the amount of suffering during and after treatment, is simply beyond what any human should have to experience.
That being said I post the following that I was asked to post:
“Can’t say this will be my last post for a while, but maybe the last of significance….love you all!
Certainly, in the most difficult moments of life you realize who are true friends or the people who really appreciate you 😊
I decided to post this message in support of a very special person to me who fought till the end with firmness and energy but sadly passed away.
Another who also had a short battle and passed and a special person continuing her fight now.
The ones who passed have taught us how to live each day as if it were the most beautiful day!
The ones left behind still struggle daily and this has a profound effect on our families.
But now is the time to be there for each other and come together as a family…and be there for each other..sometimes hugs and laughs are the best medicine when a family is trying to heal…
Cancer is very invasive and destructive to our body, even after the end of the treatment, your body is still fighting with yourself trying to reconstruct all the damage caused by radiation. It’s a very long process.
Please, in honor of a family member or a friend who died, or is still fighting cancer, or even had cancer but it’s healed; copy and paste (not share) in your page
Thank you for this opportunity to share this with you for those people and Loved one’s that fought toe to toe, time for cancer to go be gone.. xoxoxo
Posted in honor of the Many that we’re taken from us way too soon, and the Many who continue to struggle whether with treatments or after treatments because even as survivors, most if not all, suffer from PTSD.”
May we breathe in peace with every breath we are blessed to take.
