    I had cancer and have been cancer free for a while now. I have lost many friends to this horrible thing, but i will not let cancer define who i am. People always say how can you not be sad i mean you had cancer! my answer I am aloud to be sad but I wont let that control my everyday actions.There are two types of people and i have noticed this the first type aree the ones who lie in bed saying how can this be happening to me? and dont get up for anything. then there are the other type like me who make the best out of every experience even during a bad one. Examples of me making the best-
    1.cant sleep- excuse to roam the hospital at 3 in the morning when nurses are not looking
    2. chemo- make the doctor sit and play games until it is over
    3. weird but puking- make your mom guess what you ate! (i cant even tell you how many times i did this!)
    4. want to get up and walk- get ddr and dance your booty away
    5. bald- draw on your head with washable markers!
    I just saying that my doctors say if you have a happier attitude and smile you will leave the hospital sooner! i did too!

    if anyone would like to talk email me
