Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.


I don’t know about you, but I am a 3rd Stage Cancer Survivor who is I am tired of talking about what cancer did to me.  I prefer to talk about what it did not and could not do.

When I first read the poem What Cancer Cannot Do, (I don’t know who the author is) it left me with an odd feeling that something in me wanted to come out.

I soon found myself dissecting each verse for a better understanding of why Cancer is so limited it can’t cripple love or shatter hope, corrode faith, eat away peace, destroy confidence, kill friendships, shut out memories, silence courage, reduce eternal life or quench the spirit.

In 2008 I had cancer, and the more I thought about it, the more I understood just how limited Cancer really is.  It was obvious to me that cancer couldn’t cripple love simply because most know relationships don’t last because of the good times.

Relationships last because of love, respect and caring, coupled with the healing spirit we received from God.

Cancer cannot shatter hope.

No one I know plans to live a hopeless life.

Hope is a feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent.  So if you have hope, you have what you need to press forward.

Cancer cannot corrode Faith. 

I know faith can go far beyond what the eyes can see, so focus on the fight, not the fright.

I am living proof that no matter what the statistics say, there is always another way.

I suggest when you reach the end of your rope to tie a knot and hang on because your seeds of faith are always within you.  Sometimes it just takes a crisis to nourish and encourage their growth.   Did you know if we feed our faith through Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, our fears will starve to death?

Cancer cannot eat away peace. 

It matters what we do, but peace cannot and will never be kept by force.  I suggest we not be in a hurry while doing everything quietly and in a calm spirit.

Did you know no matter how much havoc cancer may wreak on our bodies, it does not have the final say?

Craig T. Owen’s analysis tells us If God doesn’t take cancer out of us on earth, He will take us out of cancer, and home to heaven.

Cancer cannot destroy confidence.

Confidence is the foundation of all success and achievements.  Then again, not everyone will be saved.  That’s Life!

Be confident that cancer is not a death sentence for all, take your chances by using the Power of the Holy Spirit, while listening to your doctor, not the wagging of tongues.

Help yourself by being mentally and physical humble in your confidence, yet courageous in your fight, and remember confidence is feeling good about yourself without anyone having to tell you how beautifully bald, or how brave you are.

Cancer cannot kill friendships. 

When someone has cancer and you are a friend, be that friend.  Don’t miss your opportunity to reach out and touch the things you know as a friend and use them to help.  No pity parties allowed.

And just so you know, some friends can’t manage their own fears, so they may be unable to support you.  We need to understand, if that was to happen, it’s not always about you.

Cancer cannot shut out memories.

If you attempt to shut your mind down, that action allows depression to strengthen its hold.

And just in case you are not brain dead or planning on it, take into consideration Bill Watterson’s point of view, he calmly reminds us, The mind is like a car battery, it recharges by running.

Cancer cannot silence courage.

Courage is moving forward, not a disease you fear when wondering what’s ahead.  And just like all success is not final, not all failures are fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

Did you know with Jesus Christ you are stronger than you struggle and fiercer than your fears?

By developing discipline and strength, you can move far beyond any setbacks, and you will gain the courage to embrace who you are and your divine purpose.

Cancer cannot reduce Eternal Life.

We are eternal beings, and we that love God will never die.  Christians sometimes make themselves into elephants afraid of mice.  You have The Creator on your side, not to mention you’ve already been given Eternal Life.  Whom or what shall you fear?

Criss Jami points out; To be afraid of death or anything other than God Himself, in his and my opinion, is like an insult to Him.

Cancer cannot quench the spirit.

The word quench in Scripture is speaking of suppressing the fire.

Ephesians 6:16 tells us above all, taking up the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 

I know cancer is wicked, but it’s your belief in God and trust in your doctors that will put the fires out.  I believe that because it was done for me.  I also believe what is written in the Bible as the Gospel Truth, so because of that, I believe Jesus Christ is the reason I am alive today.

I am not trying to take anything away from the seriousness of cancer, but I found the best way to cope, for me, is to treat cancer just like I would any other illness, setback or life event as just another part of life we will have to deal with, So deal with it.

It’s Something To Think About!

    never found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty value sufficient for me.

    or copyright infringement? My website has
    a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without

    Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
