Dear Cancer,

Dear Cancer,

A Poem by Holly Mason

         Dear Cancer,
  Hello, I know we have met, but my name is Holly. I have a few questions to ask you.
First why did you pick me? Is it because I am a super great friend? Or you just happened 
to be flying by one day and said "Oh she looks good". My second question is, do you have a 
family? If you do, you should pay attention to them and you wouldn't be so lonely. Third
question is a bit loaded, is there any cure for you? I mean I think you could at least
give a clue. My fourth and final question...why do you exist? Just wondering. I have a 
lot of life left in me and I am hoping you change your mind. If you find that you cannot
redo this deal, then I understand. I will let you know (ahead of time) that you have a
fight on your hands. I am coming out fists fully ready and I will not go down easy. You
can take your time or we can have a quick face to face. Your choice. I never said I
would lay down peacefully. You can write me back if you would like. I will even 
enclose a pre-addressed pre-paid envelope. I think you have a lot of issues. Do not
mean to be rude but you picked this fight...not me.
                                                        Fighting like a fighter should,
                                                               your nemesis, Holly
P.S. before you pick on anyone else or even think you should....finish the fight with me.
I will be ready anytime ,anyplace , anywhere....leave other folks alone, you twit. 
(twit is not what I want to say but I am not a great user of profanity) but you Cancer 
are an a--hole. (just sayin')

'I am coming out fists fully ready and I will not go down easy. You can take your time or we can have a quick face to face. Your choice.'

Oh Holly ...what a wonderfully brave, sad, incredible write, what a woman you are- inside out. This is just about the most moving piece of writing about cancer I've ever read. It hits the core. Means so much. Your friend, and here for you, Em.

OMG! I feel bad now, I had no idea you had cancer, Holls - I'm sorry. This is such a tough one, its amazing how you managed to keep such a brave face and smile through it. I'm sure your good humour helped. We're thinking of you, stay strong.

Tough one to review Holly, but I think you deserve kudos for your strength, endurance and moxy, not to mention your gracious state of mind under these circumstances. I'm sure your humor has helped you through this rough time and will continue throughout. I am in awe of your courage and tenacity my sweet friend. All the best, and I think what you meant to say was 'go f**k yourself Cancer'!
