ABCs of Cancer

by Sylvia Solomon

Inspiration image

A great day to be alive
Believe in your survival
Cry if you need to
Do what you have to do
Exercise and eat healthy
Fear nothing but God
Get a charge out of life
Have hope
It’s not the end of the world
Just enjoy your life
Keep fighting
Laughter is your best medicine
Make each moment count
Never say never
One day at a time
Plan, progress, and pray
Question when you don’t understand
Renew your faith in God
Stay positive through it all
Tomorrow is not promised
Understand your condition
Visualize your wellness
Wholeness leads to healing
Xtra love and care
Yes, you can win over any illness
Be zealous about life
