So earlier this evening I was driving to the store with Cecylia and Ainsley. We were talking about some fun Halloween plans we have and how one of those plans was a party with some other pediatric cancer survivors/patients. She told me how she knew that I felt bad for all those kids but I felt the worst for her because she’s my baby. She then asked me if I wanted her to tell me what cancer felt like. I said yes and asked her what it felt like. She told me, “Cancer feels like you’re dying. Cancer feels like you’re never going to be alive again.” Wow! Later, I asked her what chemo felt like and she said it felt like all the blood was out of her body. And she told me that radiation felt like she was never going to see her mommy again. I’m glad she can express herself, but always so sad she had to go through all of this.
So, finally, I asked her how she feels now and she said, “Great!”
Don’t have much to add, I think I will let this special four year old’s words speak for themselves.
