What Cancer Cannot Do

(Source unknown)

Cancer is so limited . . .
It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot destroy peace,
It cannot kill friendship,
It cannot suppress memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot invade the soul,
It cannot conquer the spirit.

I shared this essay with my Sweetie last week to lift his spirits. He added "it cannot bake a cake"!
