hate, hate, hate.
Screw you cancer. I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. I hate you.
Each day you force me to hold on for all its worth and cause soo many tears with soo much pain.
Pushing through this pain is what I do best, no matter how long they give me I know I will keep fighting you until the end and I know that we will find a cure to smash you until you are gone. Because I know I am not alone when I say I HATE YOU.
12 years today, hip hip hooray !!
heey it’s jess here, and this is my story. From a young age the children’s ward has always seemed to be the place where most of my time is spent, it has really become my second home.
When I was 4 years old, my life changed completely as my family and doctors discovered that I was quite sick. After weeks of uncertainty, the dreaded news was finally confirmed and I was diagnosed with a horrible, destructive, unthinkable disease - cancer.
To an innocent 4yr old young girl, the word cancer meant nothing more than any other. It was just a word.
But after numerous months hearing the same word repeated in various contexts, this word became my enemy.
The thought, sound and knowledge would bring me to tears instantly, as I knew not a lot, but enough to know that it was a beast of a disease, and without my faith and perseverance, it could easily take the better of me.
Over the last 8 years, it has seemed to become apart of me, basically coming and going as it pleases. And unfortunately in this short time I have watched 2 amazing friends pass before my eyes.
Today is my birthday and I am 12 years old, I wanted to share my life so far, not to burden you with depressing knowledge but to inspire you. Cancer has become apart of my life for 8 years now, and I am still strong, I encourage you to fight for what ever it is that is important to you because life is short, and each moment is one more than yesterday.
It would truly make my day, to have a few conversations with you, weather your struggles are great or small, and I hope our blog inspires you to hope for more! don’t be scared to say hey,
stay strong, jess x
