Hurry Up and Wait No More!

08 Nov

English: Breat Cancer ribbons


I was approached a while back and was asked whether I’d like to tell my cancer story for an upcoming book.  It didn’t take me long to decide.  If my story could help someone, then of course I would do it.  My experience with cancer, after all, was made less complicated because of all the women who went through the medical system before me.  They set the bar, through their pain and experience, so that women like me could benefit.

I just got an e-mail from Collette A. Henry, editor of the book Hope Shining Through The Darkness Of Cancer.  The book is now available.  An e-book for now.  I took the time to read other stories in the book.  Courage is a word that easily comes to mind.   It also brought back a lot of memories I thought I had crushed.

So if you, or someone close to you, has breast cancer, (or other cancer issues) I recommend this book!

    It’s far too common. I lost my mother to breast cancer two years ago. I wish you continued good health!

    I will have to get this book! My mom is a cancer survivor. I don’t think I knew that you had cancer. That makes this book even more special.

    My wife had throat cancer. Lost a vocal cord and will forever have difficulty eating. But she is here. That’s a win win to me.

      Lucky indeed! I’m happy for the both of you. After the physical healing, the state of being is thankful to have lived through it.

    Good for you. These stories need to be told. Lost my first wife to cancer, so quick too, so viscous.

      I’m sorry for your loss. It’s a mean monster, I admit. And yes, these stories must be told! 🙂

        These things happen, but the memories cannot be touched by said monster .)

    Awesome, Tk. I prefer paper copy. I guess I have to wait eh. Praying that you will continue to be cancer free. Perpetua.

    The beast has made itself known to several friends of mine. I have witnessed firsthand tragedy, heartbreak, but, more than anything, courage and resilience. Thanks for passing along the link.

      Yes, this monster has become too … common, dare I say. Besides living it, I’ve seen friends with him, and I’ve seen take a few away from us also.
      I know there are a lot of books out there on the subject, from just about any viewpoint imaginable. Still, if it helps one person only, I’ll be happy!
      Thanks Maurice!
