This weekend will be 2 years since my diagnosis with Stage IV Colon Cancer. I have been following this blog for the past 2 years. Always a source of reflection for me.
From Laurie Singer My Cancer ( http://www.npr.org/blogs/mycancer/2008/11/soldiers_waging_a_battle_again.html )
It’s Veterans Day. One of the rare holidays in this country we actually observe on the day it was intended. That’s because, even though World War I ended on June 28, 1919 with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, fighting had stopped seven months earlier. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
Look around — there’s our flag, dancing on a breeze at a veteran’s headstone, or on porches across America, in a soft salute to those brave men and women.
This blog brings together different veterans. Still fighters. Soldiers of sorts. Waging a battle in a very personal war against cancer.
This may not be your day on the calendar, but I salute you, too. Today and every other day, because I know your battlefield, and how destructive your enemy can be.
All veterans of wars have something in common.
We can only LIVESTRONG™ if we’re GODSTRONG™.
