Dreams filled my mind during the intense cancer treatment I received for stage IV melanoma. Dreams of skiing while getting MRIs of my brain...... Dreams of being with my family while hooked to the mother of all IV drip systems in the hospital..... Dreams of the future, without cancer.
YET, those of us affected by melanoma know that you never really say goodbye to melanoma completely. It is always lurking in your thoughts. The stats always tell a the story: 9% chance of surviving 5 years after diagnosis. WELL, F-You MELANOMA!!! I am still here!!!
OK, back to dreams: if you are a person who has been recently been diagnosed, know that others have been there! Others have walked the road, filled with fear, heard the statistics of our survival chances.
& WE ARE HERE!!
Dreams got me through the hardest of hard times.... AND they can help you too, ALWAYS HOLD ON TO YOUR DREAMS AND ALWAYS SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU! When the times hit you and you think you cannot go on... dreams will pull you through. Dreams of NED, Dreams of your toes in the sand, dreams of whatever you LOVE doing!! & KNOW people are praying for you every day!!
