Surviving Cancer

We’ve all seen it—the attitude that turns an athlete into a champion, that turns an ordinary soldier into a hero, that turns an entertainer into a star, that turns a failure into an honorable legacy. Those of us who are close to cancer and its survivors see it every day as well. We see the attitudes that turn wounded sufferers into survivors.

SURVIVING CANCER

Attitude Makes a Difference

We’ve all seen it—the attitude that turns an athlete into a champion, that turns an ordinary soldier into a hero, that turns an entertainer into a star, that turns a failure into an honorable legacy. Those of us who are close to cancer and its survivors see it every day as well. We see the attitudes that turn wounded sufferers into survivors.   I know as well as anyone that attitude isn’t everything. It won’t turn a couch potato into a world-class athlete or an off-key singer into a superstar. As important as attitude is, some patients with inspiring, positive attitudes will succumb to their illness, while others with negative attitudes will survive.   But I do know, having come face to face with cancer in my own life, that I have a different perspective on life, that I approach life with a different attitude. I have come face to face with the reality that life is short and what I do with the time I have is important. For me, cancer sounded an alarm that caused me to react and take action so that I can give the greatest amount of attention to the things that really matter. I’m certainly not perfect, but my goal is to make every moment count, to learn the lessons that each day brings, to be conscious of the legacy I leave behind.    

What Cancer

Cannot Do

Cancer is so limited … It cannot cripple Love. It cannot shatter Hope. It cannot corrode Faith. It cannot destroy Peace. It cannot kill Friendship. It cannot suppress Memories. It cannot silence Courage. It cannot invade the Soul. It cannot steal Eternal Life. It cannot conquer the Spirit. Cancer is so limited!   – Author Unknown

Christian Cancer Support

For Christians, Cancer can make you feel like you got punched in the face by God. Now, that may sound blunt, and depending on where your relationship with God stands today, you may or may not feel that way right now. Either way, for most Christians battling Cancer there is a chaotic vortex of emotions that needs resolving. There is pain that is desperately in need of healing. There are some serious questions that need answering. What am I supposed to do now? How do I cope? What’s the truth?

Where is God in Cancer?

Often when we are in the midst of pain, suffering or tragedy, we find ourselves struggling to answer the nagging question of “why?” Perhaps we believe that if we had these answers, we would be comforted. If we could just make sense out of what is happening, we could know who or what to blame.
