My thoughts and prayers are with you Hannah.
I dont belive that ur mom n sis dont care. They probably dont know how to deal with it in a healthy way. Its kinda of a big deal. I just cant understand that. My heart goes out to u n ur family. Keep fighting the good fight n remember u have us to relay on
Well if thats really the case, ur mom n sis are horrible people. M sorry that u have to deal with such coldness. If there is anything i can do for u please just ask me. I know we r not even close of being on the same level when it comes to life issues but my family sucks too. Again, m here for u for anything. Lean on ur dad for support. He seems like the only one there with a heart.
Hannah, I told you a little bit about my cancer & upcoming surgery in 3 days. One of the things that has been helping me is me caring about myself. I always did, but once I found out I had cancer 5 months ago, my focus turned completely towards me & me only. I selectively & carefully chose who I wanted to inform about my diagnosis because I didn't want advice from just anyone. And you know what I found out; even some of the ones I did tell didn't really know how to respond properly. I know they care, its just that the issue is so technical, they really don't know how they can help. And all I needed was someone to listen from time to time. Henceforth, I became my advocate. What I learned about my cancer, I taught to others, then out of nowhere, I became their hero. I wasn't trying to be anyone's hero, I was just fighting to live, but it was because of my outlook on my own life they saw that made me the hero. Eating right & exercising was already a routine for me, but became a bigger, more important part of my life as I knew I would fight hard through this. I've encouraged you to look at my fb page "Stomp The Pain". There are encouraging topics & stories that I post daily. Many from Stand up to Cancer & The American Cancer Society. But I'm fighting with you dear. You're not alone. You have to be strong for yourself, because there's no guarantee that anyone else will.
Thanks Rani. If any of you are on fb, know someone who is fighting or lost their fight to cancer, give the story on my page and I'll do a shout out to them and pray for the family. "Stomp The Pain". It's a public page and a learning tool made to educate about cancer & receive support.
Felicia, thanks so much for being an advocate. I worked in Oncology for a short while, and it was amazing to see the human spirit rise up and fight the disease and everything that goes with it, like yourself. However, there are others that just feel defeated, hopeless, etc... They need the support advocates like you provide. You're a great person.
And Hannah, don't give up. We're all rooting for you!
My dad survived cancer! It was really hard for me to see my dad like that! But he is doing really well right now and is cancer free! I'll be praying for you and stay strong!
