I came here tonight to write a different post. To tell you about my weekend with 19 five through nine-year-olds in a post filled with colorful details.
But when I arrived, my “reader” popped up and a post by The Cancer Curmudgeon caught my eye. I love her cancer posts because they are authentic and honest. I know her no nonsense way of discussing cancer isn’t for everyone, but I personally find it refreshing.
Anyway, when she posts something or reblogs something or points readers to an article or site, I take the time to visit/read whatever she deems worthy.
But I wasn’t coming here to read tonight. I was coming here to write.
Until I saw her post about The Battle We Didn’t Choose. It is a site written by a husband whose wife had breast cancer. The story and the photos are incredibly moving and real. An honest look at CANCER.
Caution: If you have lost someone close to you to cancer, the images may be especially overwhelming.
