Cancer Is Not A Battle We Win or Lose

This was posted by my favorite blogger "breast cancer? but doctor...I hate pink"

Amazing words from Dr Erica D. Bernstein that mean so much today.

"Cancer is not a battle that we win or lose. It is not our fault or a sign of weakness. We are not responsible for our cancer outcomes. The crapshoot of cancer and recurrence can NOT be controlled. Celebrate yourself for each time you, despite all the trauma of cancer, treatment, and the mindf*** of "survivorship", choose to love, live, lust, laugh... We are not a success story based on our cancer progression or not. We succeed when we are courageous enough to keep walking forward even with missing parts, severe pain, addled brains, and broken hearts."
