Cancer is so limited –
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life and
It cannot conquer the spirit.


I saw this posted on the wall in a doctor’s clinic. Instantly, I felt a flood of memories coming to me. This is the fourth year since I got diagnosed with cancer – cancer of the blood, which is more commonly known as leukemia. 
Being sickly since childhood, my memories of doctors, hospitals, needles and medicine are very vivid. And it has become more apparent, that despite my being unable to become a medical doctor (a childhood dream – yet choosing a different path) that I am still destined to be in the hospital, but as a patient. 
I know how hard and disheartening it can get, but I am sure that God has reasons for giving me cancer. I have realized that in many ways. For one, I am just thankful that my son is healthy and safe – I am sick and not him. Having cancer made me a better person. I became more appreciative for even the smallest things. I got to enjoy life more. I found out that I have rock-solid courage. And the list goes on… If I didn’t get sick, I would probably have a very different life from what I have now. Yet, I have no regrets…
