Often the best thing we can do for a friend is simply be there to listen.
This post is dedicated to all of the Melanoma patients, victims and survivors. It’s dedicated to the family, friends and co-workers who are your cheerleaders and number one fans. It’s dedicated to the people who are taking action against cancer by raising money, baking cookies or walking 5k in the rain to raise awareness and funds. It’s dedicated to the scientist who spends endless hours testing thousands of samples in a lab hoping for one strain of a minuscule marine sponge can cure the agony of millions. It’s dedicated to an ordinary person who buys one single t-shirt for skin cancer awareness and unknowingly educates others about an awful disease.
Melanoma, or any other cancer, is a huge hurdle that forever changes your life. Words can’t express how much strength, courage and bravery it must take to deal with all of the physical and emotional baggage that cancer brings. You are all heroes and today is the day we recognize your battle. So here’s to you, Melanoma victim survivor, keep the fight alive and beat Melanoma… while beating the beat, of course.
Appreciation is the memory of the heart. ♥
