Quick- think of the scariest word you know. What is it? Death? Failure? Loneliness?
For me, it’s Cancer. It’s the scariest word I know. And it pisses me off.
I can’t name many things I hate – in fact, I don’t know that I hate anything. Well, maybe one thing – cancer. I. Hate. It.
I hate that it exists. I hate that it causes fear when you hear the word. I. Hate. It.
Cancer is the ultimate terrorist. It attacks without warning. It does not discriminate. It grows quickly and silently. It strikes fear into the hearts of all. It winds its way through our bodies, laughing as we try to stop it. It teases us, taunts us. Says, “try all the medicine in the world. Use all technologies available. HA HA! I can’t be stopped. I can’t be defeated. I’m Cancer! I’m unbeatable! I’m uncurable! I’m Cancer- so fuck you human!”
Well you know what, Cancer? FUCK YOU!!!
You are stoppable. You are defeatable. You are beatable. And you will be cured.
There will be a day – a day when you won’t be the scariest word I know. For now, know this: I. Hate. You.
And until that day arrives, hear this – fuck cancer.
