Thank you, Weird Cancer Guy

Dear Weird Cancer Guy,

Thanks to you, all of my friends and family have shown their love for me, and I’m letting them. I feel like there’s strength in numbers, so I’ve told everyone I know. My relationship with my husband Brian is stronger than ever – I thought it was super strong before. My Dad and his wife, Chris, have been a daily, reassuring presence. And my friends are being so incredibly kind, bringing us meals, offering to have our house cleaned for us and getting my toenails super hot before chemo. Then, there’s my awesome kids. They rally and curl around me on the sofa with our dog, Xena. I am thankful for all of this. I am thankful for the rough start I had in my life because I take power from it now. My spirit is defiant. Today, I did a Zumba class with my friend, Sari. So how do you like me now, Weird Cancer Guy? No matter what, you can’t take any of this away.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
