or…as i tell people i talk to: be a warrior. one of my earliest posts about what to do when you hear that someone has cancer was written by me while i was trying to put together pieces of a life shaken completely apart by cancer. i am very proud of that post – because it rings true years later.
“What Can You Do” :
a month of so ago, i was asked to give my time to be part of a PSA (public service announcement). i was actually wary. i am no pollyanna. i like and believe in caustic behavior and just cringe at all the gooeyness that is preached about cancer survivors and going through cancer but, i have to admit, in a few minutes i realized i was surrounded by grounded smart and funny souls who had gone through their own journey and weren’t drowning in pink or buttery over-sweetened sentiment. this was support on a level i could really get behind. so here it is. i tell people who are going through cancer diagnosis or treatment – be a warrior. don’t look left; don’t look right. be strong and let the people around you support you. this PSA speaks to those people around you – are you one of those people? encourage someone to do great. inspire.
