A Farewell to Cancer

On this morning, the morning of my surgery, the morning that leads to the day in which Dr. Sugarbaker and I will annihilate you, I have a few parting thoughts for you.

You tried to scare me, but in spite of you, I became fearless.
You tried to weaken me, but in spite of you, I grew stronger.
You tried to isolate me, but in spite of you, I grew the most incredible support network imaginable.
You tried to make me tired, but I've never felt more energized.
You tried to make me feel hopeless, but my heart is filled with hope and my life is filled with promise.
You tried to strip my life from me, but my life is more rich and beautiful now.

Despite your best efforts, I will live to a ripe old age.
Despite your best efforts, I will be a wonderful mother.
Despite your best efforts, I will return to my job at O'Melveny & Myers.
Despite your best efforts, I will run for mayor of Los Angeles.
And despite your best efforts, my faith in God, the goodness of my fellow man, the body's ability to heal, and my will to survive and thrive will never, ever be shaken.

Thank you for the lessons you taught me, cancer, but it's high time that you get the hell out of my body.

Farewell, cancer.


Talk to you soon, dear readers. WunderGlo loves you!!
