Cancer Makes Us Whole

Cancer brings people together.

Support networks seem to materialize from nothing for the sake of patients who are poked, prodded, and otherwise violated by medical equipment.

Diagnosis is the start of a noble journey to find peace with one’s mortality. With luck, it is a great obstacle overcome.

Without it, a death which should be saved for only the vilest of creatures. Often, I wonder if that’s how I’ll go.

It’s taken so many of the ones I’ve loved – it’s challenged people who deserve only happiness.

Sometimes, I imagine an acidic tumor burning its way into my lungs, or my brain, or my heart.

I only smirk at the poetic justice and bide my time.

Cancer tears people apart.
