You have taken away such special people in my family. You rampage through my husband’s side of the family. You’ve attacked his uncle (and lost, you fiend),taken his great-grandmother, his aunt, and now you’ve taken his father. A man who was the best father to my husband and the best grandfather to my children. You are ugly and depraved and someday through science and the Grace of God, you will be no more. Fair warning, you stay away from my husband and my sons. You’ve never met anyone like me. Though you think you can not run, but gallop, through my family…turn your evil hooves around because I’m the butcher and you’ll just be nothing on the slaughterhouse floor!

You come like thief in the night. You think you have so much power, as you attack the young and the old. Mothers; fathers; sisters; friends; cousins; brothers, the list could go on! It’s as if you feary has no end! Do you get joy out of others pain? Do feel pleasure watching others suffer? Do you sit in the dark with your wicked smile as you hand out death sentences? Well I have news for you. There is someone higher than you! Someone who allows you to do these things. For many, not all, but many of the horrible things you do, will only bring glory to the one higher than you. Bringing families closer, making the weak strong and the sick thankful. So wipe that grin off your face, because our Lord and our savior has filled us with Abundant Grace! Take note because many times you, oh you, my dear cancer, are simply a pon in the plan(s) that the Lord has made. The plans to give us a hope and a future.
A proud daughter, friend and cousin of those you try to steal. To God be the Glory.

Dear Cancer, when you came into my life, I thought it was just a dream. You took my life, or so you thought . Just to let you know, it’s time for u to leave. I don’t rent out free rooms to killers like you. U are evil and a murderer of innocent people and u don’t deserve to live. So pack your bags cuz officer Chemo will be here to lock u up forever. Kiss my ass Cancer. U will not get the best of me.

I will beat you. You are not welcome here. My father always taught me hate is a strong word and to use it sparingly. I hate you cancer, and you don’t belong here.

MY DEAREST CANCER
Without a thought you took me
Left me darkness and despair
You took all the fundamentals
I even lost my hair
You split my soul wide open
Feels like nothings left inside
You locked me in my casket
I have not even died
You stole the love around me
You filled me with regret
And every time I fight you
I think, “Is this over yet?”
The pain goes past the physical
With it there are no scars
Sometimes I am so lonely
I feel displaced on Mars
I search for hope in every place
Is easy to forget
That even the great catchers
Need the perfect mitt
You given much resistance
To finish lifetime goals
Have clouded my good judgment
Have filled my roles with holes
The emotions are so daunting
On this roller coaster ride
And climbing steeper mountains
Leaves me no place left to hide
Why make my heart so callous
Take my place to grip
Then drown me in the ocean
Have not built my ship
Please take no more from me
Without something to replace
Let light and love surround me
Touch me with God’s grace

When I wrote this, it had just begun and now I look back and think My Dearest Cancer letter must have been lost in the mail. However, I am grateful to be alive.

Just go away! Why are you still trying to take things from her. You have taken her breast and having kids. You are now trying to take away her bones and her liver. She is only 31. She does not deserve any of this. What the is your problem. Go back to the hole you crawled out of, you son of a gun
She is my BEST FRIEND! I will NOT LET YOU HAVE HER!!!! Just leave her alone.
Oh and Fyi: even though you made her hair fall out, SHE IS STILL BEAUTIFUL…. She can rock a mohawk like nobodies business!! S

So I walked in my first Breast Cancer Walk. You won this round…I won’t walk again. Shirt after shirt read, ” I walk in memory of my mother”, “I walk in memory of my sister”,”I walk in memory of my friend”, my aunt, my coworker, my boss……I saw the faces of the people I love wearing those shirts and I don’t want to be the next “In Memory of……”.

I hate you so much. at 16 years old I had to say goodbye to my mom, my best friend, because you can’t just leave people alone. my mom fought Ovarian Cancer so hard for 12 years, and you just couldn’t raise that white flag. now i’m 23, and guess what, I still have to live without my mom. for the rest of my life!! she wasn’t there to see me graduate college last month, she isn’t there for me to call when I need advice, and she won’t be there for so many other things, milestones, like my wedding, or when I have a baby. you are the worst of the worst and I wish that you would just go away. you ruin millions of lives each year, haven’t you had enough yet?!?!?! after torturing my mom for 12 years you couldn’t just back down?!?! this pain that you have caused will NEVER go away. I will NEVER be able to see my moms face again, or hear her voice, or tell her how much I love her and how I would give ANYTHING in the entire world for just one more day with her. how you do this to good people?! these are people!! they’re mothers, daughters, sisters, brothers, husbands, etc. my mom never deserved any of the torment you put her through. because of cancer, my kids will never have the beautiful, vivacious, fun-loving role model to look up to that i had for 16 years. cancer hasn’t only taken my mom, it’s taken a part of me that will never come back. please just go away. I’m so angry at you and so mad that my family and I will forever have to live with anger, and a huge void in our lives.
please. how many more innocent lives must be lost before you just go away. you’ll never achieve a victory. cancer will NEVER win!!

I hate you. You tried to take away a dear friend. But she beat you to it. So haha.
You have been taking away so many lives. You took away my dad’s co-worker, that he was fond of. I can’t believe you. What have these people done?
If you come for me, I will be STRONG.

I hated you; I hated you for trying to take my dad away. I mean, what bad had he done? You came to him, to his throat, and he’d never been a smoker or even a drinker. You make no sense, and though I tried to be strong, but when he had to get that stomach tube put in and stay overnight at the hospital, I cried. I let you take over my life. I let my problems throw me into the deep end, no longer the girl I once was, slipping back into that depression. Why must you and death take away what was supposed to be the best part of my life and turn it into some cruel joke that life decided to play on me?

First you invaded my mommy’s body you took it over and i hate you. You made her sick and cry in pain for days on end. You made her lose her hair and her eye lashes, you took away her feeling of beauty and youthfulness, you took away our family’s sense of security. But you did NOT take her. she beat you and you came back for my daddy. now he cries In pain and can’t eat without getting violently ill. You turned my daddy my superman, and turned him into a man who can barely walk down the stairs anyomore. He will continue to fight you, we all will. Cancer will NOT take you daddy. FUCK YOU CANCER, LEAVE MY FAMILY ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
