"There is nothing in this world that can prepare you for what cancer, chemotherapy, and radiation do to your mind, body, and spirit. There is not a single thing that can prepare you to witness your loved ones suffer with you.
So what is my message? Abnormal symptoms in your body are not something you should ignore. Seeing a doctor right away is worth your time. Following up on your health can change your life.
Be proactive and make your health your top priority."
"I can’t say that I have moving, motivational words of wisdom to take from this, but I will say this - MAN, can things truly change in the blink of an eye. If you weren’t strong before, you have to be now. Never take your health for granted, or the people around you."
"Optimist: someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it's a Cha-Cha."
“Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul healing, amazing, ordinary, awful life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful."
