Whooooo Hooooo finished chemo number 9 today , leaving three to go!!!!! Almost over, and it is going fast. Cannot wait to be able to taste food again without this awful metallic taste in my mouth. Ok, so I lose the tan, but get my hair back!!!
Today’s drawing is only able to take place because of a friend of mine, Ashley F. She has loaned a very personal picture to me to draw, because I want to share this experience with all of you. Ashley was seeing her papa in the hospital, who was dying from cancer. She took a photo of them holding hands with her cell phone. It is beautiful and tells a story with no words. Ashley and I have agreed on the title, since this is the last time she saw him, we are calling it “Addio Dolce”or Sweet Farewell.
Many of us have to fight cancer or say goodbye to someone with cancer. There are so many kinds, this is a disease, which we must learn to conquer. It causes such emotional, physical and spiritual pain. Cancer does not make an appointment or knock on the door! It just lets itself in and it is up to find it. Be vigilant! Catch it early to give you the best odds of beating it…..now let’s go beat up cancer some more. Smile, laugh, enjoy life, each on of these actions in another POW POW to cancer!
