Fighting Like Hell

“If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.”
~ Lance Armstrong


My family has a close family friend, very recently diagnosed with cancer, who within the next week or so will undergo a life altering operation. While I want and need to write about this, I am unable to do that just yet. I haven’t processed all the emotions, thoughts, and questions that I have. Until that time, can you please send up good thoughts, prayers and well wishes for my friend? While this friend’s fight will not be easy, it is something that he will overcome. He is a fighter and I know that he will choose to fight like hell.

Hugs to you. And "fight like hell" to your friend. Here's hoping the cancer was spotted early enough to be eradicated!
