it's not new.
i've known her for twelve years, and it's at the point now that she's had cancer for more years than she hasn't.
we were seventeen.
didn't know a damn thing about cancer, CT scans, MRIs, oncologists, ORs, radiation, pathology reports.
but we learned fast.
we learned that cancer goes away.
but sometimes it comes back.
and when it does you have to find something to help you believe
it will go away again.
and then there was a man named Lance.
who started LiveSTRONG.
and on August 13th, 2010 we got those words
written on our wrists.
