I recently found out someone I am close to has terminal cancer.  I do not think all cancer diagnoses are grim or hopeless.  I know people who have conquered this awful disease and are cancer free today. I hope someday we can find a cure so that everyone can survive this awful disease. 

Cancer
A scary
Shocking
Consuming
Evil

Like black mold
Growing
In our walls
Spreading

Inside us
Hidden 
Damaging

Changing
Many Lives 

Forever

Well written Tania, I like many on here have lost friends and close family to that awful disease, thankfully some if caught in time can be treated. I am sorry to hear about your friend. Tom
