Her hair once so beautiful and thick, now hangs in little wisps on her head from being so 
sick. From the radiation treatment she has to receive because the cancer is back again like a 
raging beast that won't go away is it here to stay or gone for ever, cancer can be so clever. 
It can be gone for months or even years, then it rears it's ugly head once more and once 
again brings on the tears. It stays on the threshold of her life challenging her to a fight of 
death, I will fight you again once more with every dying breath. This cancer will not be beat 
me I swear it will be my mission. Ha, i beat you again my cancer is in remission.

 I lost a dear friend to cancer

    You describe this terrible disease almost to vividly. To see a person ravaged by the diesease combined with the treatments is horrifying. excellent write. So glad your cancer is in remission and you have the fortitude to write about it. Keep the faith and keep up the good fight.
