Chronicles Of A #FutureCancerSurvivor "A Thank You To My Cancer"


“It’s not all bad, all the time.”~ Denise Albert, The MOMS #FutureCancerSurvivor

By Denise Albert

We all know that cancer sucks. That’s the obvious. You may feel sick. You may look sick. You have to go through treatment, surgery, loss of hair, exhaustion, mood swings, bathroom issues, rashes. Nausea, loss of appetite, anxiety, guilt, scary thoughts and possible death.

This is what we know about cancer. Cancer sucks. I even let my kids say, “F–k Cancer.”

As positive as I’ve been, this procedure and the thought of it set me back emotionally. It hit me hard. I now need a device implanted in my chest. If a port sticking out of my chest with a wire you can see running up to my collarbone isn’t enough of a reminder that I have cancer, then my 11-year-old telling me I look weird without makeup is what does.

Many people survive cancer. There must be some good that comes from it. For me, so far it’s the little things: Read more
