Cancer. What does that mean to you? Maybe you think of pain, chemotherapy or death. Cancer is man’s number one enemy. Yes, living with cancer does involve those things but it teaches you many valuable life lessons. Lessons one can only learn if they are ever put in a difficult situation like I am. Living with cancer has completely changed my perception of the world and the people who live in it. It has taught me to always look for the best in things, because you never know when they may leave.... Or you may leave…. My friends and family have become closer than ever during this rollercoaster ride. We have had our ups and downs, tears have been shed and anger has been displayed. However, in the end they do this because they love me, adore me and wish to keep me. I want them to remember me when I’m gone, as the bubbly teenage girl I was before this disastrous disease struck. I want them to remember that no matter what, I’ll always be with them, in their memories, for all eternity.

I only have a couple of weeks left, then it’s “goodbye world.” I believe I have spent my 15 years on planet Earth well, doing the things I love with the most amazing and affectionate people. I would do anything to stay with them, but fate had other things in store for me….
