Cancer concerns

How to tell the other half
How to tell the kids
How to tell family, friends
This hell that I've been bid

How to say it's cancer
How to tell I'm scared
How to be there for them
I'm really not prepared

How to tell what they think
How to ask for their help too
How to know I have the strength
Enough to pull us through

    oh my , Anna-Marie. I am sorry to hear this. So many concerns you must have. the poem says it all. I like how you wrote this poem. ( I see this is for someone else , looking down at what you told Silent one. I hope they can pull through this. Sure to be a struggle)

    Ive been through this... I know how you feel... Cancer is a pure evil... I didnt tell anyone until months later, especially my wife... I can still remember how people reacted... I wish you all the best and hope you beat this evil disease.. A lot of the battle is in your mind..please try to be positive.

    Good morning, Anna Marie. I have had these concerns also. I think it is not a time to 'be there for them' rather, it is a time they can be there for you. Wishing you the best Holiday season ever! Love and hugs, catie :)
