The Breast Cancer Journey Poem by Rosie Bourget

The Breast Cancer Journey

Rating: 5.0

Cancer is just an obstacle
Like any other terminal illness
No one is exempted from it
It kills men, women, and children
Rich, poor, upper and lower class
Living their families
Confused and desperate
Cancer hurts those who survived
Spiritually and psychologically
Fear is with them all the time
It haunts them day and night
Cancer is such a scary illness
No matter how science is advancing
Some treatments just are not working
Cancer makes you realize
How precious life really is
For yesterday it was you
Tomorrow it could be me
With hope and faith
With family and friends
~ ~
With courage and determination
Simple words that can bring comfort
And the hope of healing
With support from everyone
Together we will fight this
So we can start off fresh and new!

Cancer is a dreadful disease, the cure is yet to come. The poem, however, is inspiring.
