Fighter, soldier, survivor, patient, all words we use to describe our friends and family members navigating the world of cancer.

When I heard about my friend who’s been undergoing radiation treatment for a tumor around his esophagus, I thought of how BRAVE he is to face his cancer, knowing what the effects of the radiation could mean.

He was holding-up pretty well.  Radiation brings with it, fatigue, skin rashes, loss of appetite, but it can also bring more serious side effects and he’s facing one of those right now.  It’s a set-back, a big set-back, but his wife describes him as “weak in body at the moment, but strong in spirit and we hope that’s going to carry us far.”

BRAVE….both of them so BRAVE.

Cancer builds brave souls.
