Cancer is something that is mostly feared in all of us. just remember it is never to late to have yourself checked dont wait until tomorrow. My appreciation and thanks to all of those who stood by and with me. And specially to the Girl who helped me make it thru.

Long and winding is the road that lies ahead
Fear not, all climbs are steep
Some even steeper than the one from yesterday
Just keep on climbing, reach out your hand
There is a Hand just waiting to pull you up
To tow this line with you.
I've walked this road for two years now
And along the way I have seen many come
And many go
To another world out there,
Up there,
Who knows where?
This we only find out when we get there.
Cancer is a road I wish no one to travel
Even though I have stumbled and fell
Along this path chosen for me
This Hand once again lifted me
And hence so the climb began again
If only then I knew what I know now
I would have learnt more about it
The need to understand it
To handle it and to cope with it
You my friend can stop it before it starts
If ever in doubt don't wait
Until tomorrow,
Next week
Month or next year
It may just be to late to stop
Many have had it,
Many don't get through it
I have been one of those more fortunate ones
Who reached out and took that Hand
To pull me to the summit
I didn't let it fight me
I fought it,
And still am fighting it
There will always be the scheduled tests
With the hope, you are clean and free
There are no guarantees yet
But maybe just tomorrow a cure will be found
WOW! What an awesome thought
The hope of a new tomorrow
Will always linger there
So my dear fellow men and ladies
Maybe here is a small message in this piece
Just for you and your love ones
Don't leave it until tomorrow
Have it checked today
Fight cancer guys and gals
Fight it with all you have
Reach out for that Hand
Which wants to hold yours
And lead you up the mountain
Yes! It is the Hand of our Redeemer.
