I hate cancer. Cancer has stolen my friends and my family and twice it’s tried to kill me. I’ve battled it (read about it here and here) and both times it has challenged me to my core. Once you’ve heard the doctor’s words, “You have cancer,” there’s never another normal doctor visit again. You always expect the worse. Cancer changes you. Next month I will celebrate the fact that I’m 7 years cancer free… but not everyone is so lucky.
Today my friend Dustin Williams, a sophomore in Childress High School, battles non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He and his family are in Houston as he begins his long hard fight with cancer. This has been Dustin’s first week of tests and chemotherapy. He has a long fight ahead of him. Pray for him.
Dustin, hang in there my friend. This video is for you… kick it’s butt!
- Dustin will be reading this post, you can leave him a note if you’d like.
- And, how has cancer affected your life?
