With the holidays coming I am thinking about miracles. While in the melanoma community we have had too many deaths and too much sadness, I want to take a moment to recognize the miracles.
Lately I have been hearing stories fighting cancer, colon cancer and other types of cancer and winning!! People who had HUGE tumors discovered inside and they beat the odds! People who faced death and the horrible treatments, and are here!
When we think about it, we are face challenges everyday. From medical crises of all kinds, why do some survive and others not? The answers come from a power higher than myself. I am grateful to meet so many survivors from so much diversity! It gives us HOPE when there seems to be none. Many of my melahomies know this already, our community has many sad stories, many stories of re occurrences and the loss of too many people. There comes a time to remember the miracles and that we are fighters!
I am grateful to be one of those miracles, and as one, I will continue to help find a cure for cancer. I am planning another AIM @ Melanoma 5k Fun Run Fundraiser. I am going to continue to paint my angels for those fighting the BEAST. & I plan on sticking around a long time to continue to beat the odds!
If you are still in the fight with cancer, know that there are those of us who have been there... and we have SURVIVED and we are rooting for you!!! FIGHT ON and be that miracle!!!
