Today is your day, congrats, but today you will not make me cry, you will not make me grieve, I will not give you that satisfaction. I will celebrate, celebrate everything I have learnt from you. Yes you're a bully and you will continue to do what you do best. But what you are blissfully unaware of is there are millions of us fighting back and one day we will win. We are winning. You may take away our fathers, mothers, grandparents even our pets, but you can never touch our memories.
So today, we reflect. We learn. We TALK.
I'll admit your presence has made life that much tougher, but I am twice as strong for it. Once I was fearful of you but now I am fearless, so bravo for your effort, but jog on pal. Cancer you're not special. I shall not talk about you behind your back, instead I will shine as much light on you as possible. Awareness is vital and powerful. So today I will raise my voice for that one person who may read this and think slightly differently.
One day cancer you will merely be a star sign,
