It also makes me very sad to think about the population that does not have health insurance. I don't know how the medical world works, but I can only hope that those who don't have insurance are still able to get the treatment they need in some way or another. Having cancer is bad enough, and so having to worry about the financial aspect of it makes it even worse.
While cancer is undoubtedly expensive, love is free. Some of the most priceless moments don't cost a thing. Like getting to hold my nephew for the first time, or when Paul looks me in the eye, bald head and all and says I am the most beautiful woman in the world. I know that God prepared me to fight this battle because he knew of the love and support I have from so many people. From my cousin Catherine who sends me candy in the mail, to Eunice who shoots me text messages just to tell me she is thinking of me, my work colleagues who send me packages and letters. I could spend hours thanking every single person in my life who has made a difference in this journey that I am on. Every text message, Facebook message, or comment on my blog-- I read every single one and I cry, and I laugh, and I smile. You know who you are- thank you from the bottom of my heart. It makes me that much stronger stronger. Now all I have to say is….cancer, it's your turn to be scared now.
