Quote of the Day

What Cancer Cannot Do!
World Cancer Day - February 4th

Today is World Cancer Day.  Most people have been affected by Cancer, in one way or another....either as Cancer Survivors, one of the many who did not survive the fight, or you might currently have friends or family that are fighting cancer or have lost the fight. 

Childhood Cancer, is especially heartbreaking to me, as kids, or their families should not have to struggle with a disease such as Cancer.  I can't even imagine!   I loved this quote about focusing on the things that Cancer cannot take away from you!

I follow a lot of Kids on Facebook with Cancer, and other life threatening, or terminal illnesses. Everytime I am having a bad day, or something is not going right in my life, I will see a post from the families of one of these kids about their struggles, or the fight that was lost that day, and it is always a wake up call to me, that I really don't have anything to complain about!
