"Hello Ms. Ali;
Thank you so much, for being my first survival clebration online friend. I haven't yet had the time to come to the site too often, because a lot of time I'm not feeling too well; I'm actively in chemo for my…"
I'm a x2 cancer survivor, who have struggled through both cancer, but will not allow it to take control of my life. My cancers were an "Awakening" for me. I came to realize with my survivor, I was about to face a new beginning, new hope, do and see more with a whole new prospective on life. I knew that I would have to work through the strength that I will develop each time I think of the gift of life my Savior gave to me. Yes, I live with a few complications, but "I'm living". Through my journey, I had an unexplain episode, such as a miracle, something I will never understand, but it happen. I turn that experience into a poem and called it "Peace". I took that poem, along with many others I had written during my Breast cancer period and placed them into book form. I was blessed enough to have a book of poems published called "True Simple Poems of Life, Faith and Survival"; published in October 2009/Breast Cancer month. I then went on and wrote an inspirational childrens' book, called "If Only I Could fly, said Mattie-bee", which was recently published and I'm working on my third book. I never anticipated becoming a writer, I just became one. I truly believe when you survive a horrific tragedy or a horrible disease, such as cancer, it's for a reason, "you have a purpos" and I want to live to find out exactly what that is for me.
With the words and phrases of each one of my poems, as well as my inspirational children's book, I wish to make a positive impact on someone who's ill or otherwise hurting, where they can proceed life in a whole new way. I'm a true example that you can survive cancer, not once, but twice, if you get to it in time, have faith and allow it to direct your path.
Cancer, You do not have to surrender yourself to it, don't allow it to take control of you, take control of it; take back the power and fight, your body need you to protect it,
Take back that confidence and never give up, because, when you're at your weakest, it's at its strongest.
