See that girl across the room? Well she's about to get some bad news. Those head aches and stomach cramps aren't going away. She has brain cancer. Stage 2 Things just get worse from here. The chemotherapy. The brain surgery. She starts to give up. But wait, there's good news. A new experimental procedure. Will it work? Hell, nobody knows. But she's willing to risk it. 2 days later. Just another body in the morgue. But it's not fair. She was so young. Just 16. She deserved to live. Cancer has no mercy. It's a monster.  The pain it causes? It's excruciating. The tears it brings? They could flood the Earth. Cancer is a beast.  It hides like a coward. Then one day it strikes. No one expects it. They don't see it coming. Then, BAM! It's just there. \"Why me?\" they think. \"What have I done?\" Does God have a wheel with all of our names? Does He throw a dart to decide our fate?  It has nothing to do with God. It's a crap thing that no one deserves. But you see, cancer has no mercy. It's a cowardly lion. It hides until one day out of the blue, It strikes.
