It’s so much more than a bracelet…

It’s been stretched, twisted, pulled on, pulled off, and thrown across the room.  That happens when the cancer fills the room and it’s just too much to handle.  That’s when this little stretchy, rubbery bracelet with the words “cancer sucks” allows us to vent and who cares where it lands.

I’ve worn my “cancer sucks” bracelet for about 10 years now.

I remember finding it in the ‘Image Recovery Center’ at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Hopkins.  I was a little surprised at the slogan but sales were brisk the day I got mine.

I’m sorry to say, I’ve given them to many friends since that day.

Two little words wrapped around a wrist.  A silent shout out to the world.

It says so much.
