Somewhere in the midst of treatment (whatever that may entail) you’ll be tired, sore, emotionally exhausted and may even doubt the benefit of treatment versus the side-effects.  Cue the feelings of not being able to cope or take any more that cancer has to throw at you.

Like the gift that keeps on giving – cancer can be a resistant opponent hence the brutal  treatment it receives.  Like Rocky Balboa you may be balding, puffy in the face, knackered after rounds in the ring with cancer and muttering incoherent things. Just  know that somehow you’ll dig deep, maybe even shout the name of your beloved a la Rocky and eventually get back up to finish the job you started.

If not for yourself right now, you’ll do it for those around you.
