Cancer Poem

This was written one month after my cousin died of colon cancer. I hope and pray that someday a cure is found. I do not want to lose any more loved ones.

It would be so easy to just imagine this because so many people die from of cancer. My Meme died because of breast cancer.

Imagine A World Without Cancer

default ©

Published: May 2011

Imagine there's no cancer,
It's easy if you try,
No pain or suffering,
Or waiting just to die.

Imagine all the people,
Living worry free,
Without that ticking time bomb,
That no one else can see.

You may say I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one,
That hopes the world will be cancer-free,
So we can live as one.

Over the years 6 family members have had cancer. Two of which have died, one is dying and we been told any day now and another one has breast cancer again in same breast as 16 years ago. Cancer keeps coming after my family the people I love. This poem still makes me cry to this day.

Hey, what can I say the poem was very touching since I only lost my mother 8 months ago and I found out my auntie was diagnosed with the same kind of cancer my mother had (cervical cancer)...I try to read and understand but somehow it's hard not only for me but for others who are in the same position as me!!!!!

Hi, well my auntie has just been diagnosed with cancer and my other auntie died because of it about two years ago, I also know a little girls mother who has recently just passed away because of cancer, I know there isn't any way in stopping this dreadful illness but I try and do my part by doing cancer runs and other fundraising activities, I would just like to say good luck to anyone fighting cancer, especially my auntie and R.I.P to all those who have died because of it, you will all always be in our hearts.

My mom and grandma and aunt all have breast cancer this is a very touching story trying to imagine the world without cancer because we could all live as one. As long as we all keep living and keep our hopes up maybe our world will turn out like this one day then our children or our children's children won't have suffer
