What makes a warrior?
Where does their strength come from? They show it just by walking into the treatment rooms, ready to face another day of chemo, radiation or surgery. It suggests to me that they are brave beyond words. They are fighting cancer, something that should make them buckle at the knees and yet they march on.
Don’t tell me they’re doing it because they want to live, because they want to see another day. I get that, but there is so much more that goes into the making of these warriors. Like a soldier who puts his life on the line to save another soldier, these warriors are doing the very same thing. What they are going through might take their life too, but they’re doing it to help save the next guy.
Cancer warriors don’t get medals, but they sure do save lives.
