Today is Cancer survivor day 💕

Today is Cancer Survivor Day …

Someone who had cancer once said, “don’t be sad for me, we all come to this world to be tourists, enjoy life, go sightseeing, do good deeds, and I just so happen to be leaving earlier than others”

Had to share this today, As reading it hit me, generally tearing up at just a few words, but no one knows how long we have on this earth, anything can happen.

I know my time now unfortunately will be shorter than I thought even though I don’t know when my time is s CML all depends on response to every day treatment (Chemo Tablet)

so I am living my life the way I want, excited for future adventures , I’m living for me, and what makes me happy, not to please everyone else, just being Leanne, not Leanne with Cancer.

I do have CANCER, I struggle, I’m in pain, I cry, I breakdown, I lay awake wondering what I did wrong to have this, somedays I just don’t want to wake up or even get out of bed…

But through all that I have become brave, I’m strong, I’m determined, I’m stepping up, I’m living my life, I’m wiping away the tears, I’m bold, I’m helping others with Cancer, I’m fearless, I’m getting up and I’m FIGHTING, I’m not giving up!

and guess what … I’M KICKING CANCERS BUTT :kissing_heart::reminder_ribbon::raised_hands:

Cancer is only a chapter in my life, not my whole story :two_hearts:

Today is Cancer Survivor Day.

For someone who fought a battle against cancer and passed away

someone who is still struggling (My category​:muscle::reminder_ribbon:)

A brave survivor, I’m showing my support, respect and love. :reminder_ribbon: feel free to share to support Cancer survivor day :crossed_fingers:

Hi Leanne thanks for posting that today is Cancer Survivor Day, some parts were poignant, some parts made me smile. Yes we are all survivors and fighters. It’s weird that before diagnosis I imagined how my life would pan out, now the difference is I feel I don’t know which is scary. Please do share your fears, thoughts and feelings with us.


More than welcome !
Aw thank you for the feedback!
Yes we sure are, I will do! And you too :kissing_heart:
Yeah it changes your life completely , but you just gotta do what you wanna do !
Last year we was gonna go disney and we couldn’t afford it, twice we tried then as soon as I was diagnosed we just booked it!
And we go next month for my birthday :cake: so I’m so excited , you just gotta live :two_hearts:


Hi Leanne I await knowing how you choose to celebrate your birthday.
