I guess this is the time to look back over the year and think about the highs and lows and do a little self-correction right?
I’ve never been a big resolution girl. I look in the mirror and see things that need improving all year long, not just on January 1st!
This is more of a “HOPE” time for me. I have way too many friends fighting cancer right now. These ‘boomers” are part of the cancer population and they are warriors fighting for their lives every day. My wish for the upcoming year is that they get healthy again and that cancer research continues to be funded and new and better treatments find their way to the treatment rooms.
Yesterday, at the cancer center, in the midst of this Holiday season, there were too many patients walking the lobby floor hooked up to IV drips. There were so many visitors with their arms full of Holiday treats waiting for the elevator to take them to cancer patients who weren’t home for the Holidays.
For those of us who have lived through this season with cancer as an unwanted guest, it doesn’t take much to remember what it was like trying so hard to push cancer out the door and pretend it was just another Christmas/ New Year’s to celebrate. It was anything but normal.
So HOPE is how I look at this end of year time.
HOPE for better times in cancer world.
