Someone always has it worse than you do.

Mom with a 9 year old child with a brain tumor.  Has lost several family members to cancer in the last 5 years.  She receives the results of her biopsies today.  Swollen Lympnodes, headaches, bad cough.  She has been seeking answers for three weeks now. She knows it is bad.  Her daughter has figured it out. As I have followed her journey I realized we all have the same journey.  It is noodles but the noodles have different sauces.

 It sort of works like this.  Something feels wrong, you try to find out what is wrong.  You are afraid of what could be wrong and then they torment you so long you don't care what is wrong as long as they just tell you what is wrong and give you a plan.   

Cancer world is not a place we learn to trust very much. This is the thing of nightmares.  Survival requires lots and lots of good friends, family and hope. Everyone needs a good a strong dream catcher in their arsenal.  And lots of coffee.

Hoping for few nightmares today for all that are in Cancer World.
