Don’t Be Sorry

Don’t be sorry.TinyDragonOnFingers

There are so many ways to look at that. Don’t be sorry you did something yourself. Don’t feel sorry for someone else. Don’t dwell on the negative…. Right now I just want you to avoid telling me you’re sorry. I want to hear “hey – it’s going to be alright” or “you’re lucky”. Why, you ask?

Well, I was diagnosed on August 19 with breast cancer. We caught it early, it’s non-aggressive, it’s small, and it’s considered very treatable. Don’t feel sorry for me and don’t say you’re sorry. If I’m going to have cancer this is about as good as it gets. Think positive, help me plan for the future, and treat me like normal. And of course indulge my every whim and let me win every argument…. Just kidding. Mostly. Many of you want to help and I do appreciate that. Let me put your offers on hold as I am told help is most needed a few months into the treatment plan.

Thank you for your caring and for your support!

  1. You darn well better be telling truth about the treatability, girlfriend … We haven’t gone river rafting together yet, and I will need you to be 100% when we do that!

    I hope you will tell me if there is anything I can do for you.

    If anyone can get through this with grace and good humor, it’s you!!

    Love, Kalen

  2. A very close friend of mine went through ovarian cancer last year. It was stage three. She came out stronger and wiser. Never felt sorry. Never asked, why me?

    You will do just great. You will need friends and family during the journey. I will be there, for whichever way I can make this journey easier.

    These life events make us remember to appreciate small pleasures of life. I learnt to do that with my friend last year. Will do more, as I follow your blog.

    Thanks Cindy, for making me part of your journey.

  3. If anyone can Kick Cancer’s Ass it’s you. You are such a strong and positive person. Sending positive vibes your way.

    I know I’m far away, but let me know if I can do anything else for you.
