An Open Letter To Cancer

Dear Cancer:

I hate you. You took my husband's favorite uncle (and my son's namesake). I never even got to meet him. You have attacked way too many people in my family. (They kicked your ASS by the way.)

The mere mention of your name makes my daughters cry. You took grandfathers from both of them.

You even took my dog.

Now you think you are going to mess with my father-in-law? What gives you the right?

Go away. No one invited you. You are not welcome here.

You will not win. You. Will. Not. Win.

Wish there was A LOT more I could do.

Also, I hope you don't mind but I created a direct link from my cancer post to your open letter. Let me know if it brings you traffic! Stay strong, my friend.

Oh my gosh Kami, you are awesome. Love love love that you did that. Thank you.

I saw that you tweeted it and got all teary-eyed. Thanks for being so caring and supportive.
