I'm not big on tattoos, or an advocate of such, but I would almost be tempted to do something around it. (Easy for the non-cancer girl to say, eh?) Within a month of my Dad dying (from cancer), the Grey's Anatomy episode aired where one intern tells the other, matter-of-factly, "Welcome to the Dead Dad's Club". Yeah. Thanks. When do I get my club card? Roll me up & chiffonade me with a sharp knife.
I love your telling of it, even if you hate it.

I've been thinking these things for awhile but you say them so eloquently I feel I read not only my own story but that of so many others. Someone was saying the other day how awesome cancer survivors are, that they really get what life is about and all I could think was "Actually cancer really sucks but no one wants to hear that part so being women we just end up smiling and saying wow, it was really a gift and I'm so grateful to be here." Cancer sucks, treatment sucks, being in a club you never wanted to join also sucks--and thank you for telling it like it is. I don't know you but have been reading your blog for over a year since I had my own bout with cancer. Mine was a baby cancer and I am humbled by your much more extreme experience but once touched by cancer we all know the world is different. Thanks again.

I just wanted to say that I disagree with you re: the walk. I walked in Tampa and it wasn't about me (the walker) at all (if you could see my physical shape you'd see that I'm not one to walk 60 miles for the fun of it!) - it is all about you, no matter your cancer. I walked for a friend of my Mom's who didn't have breast cancer, but just about every other sort that could hit her "girl" parts. It's all about the Survivors and the current and the future cancer warriors. Walking, for me, was easier than telling my Mom's friend how in awe I was of her courage and determination. I tell her, but I well up with tears each time I do. Walking was hard, but easier than what she (and you!) went through. It was really all about her and you and many others.

I really enjoy your blog and your perspective! Thank you for being open.
