I had a friend. We had known each other since we were small kids. We had been friends for 36 years. She was exceptionally bright, one of the kindest people I have ever known and a gorgeous soul. She was also funny, and witty, and beautiful. At 47, she didn’t have a single gray hair, not one wrinkle, if that even matters. At 47, she could be proud to have been completely honest and trustworthy all her life, caring for the needs of others way above her own.
My friend had been fighting colon cancer for 7 years. After the first sneaky attack of the beast, she had been in remission for 3 years before it came back with rage and fury. It went everywhere very quickly and despite my friend’s will to fight and live, cancer was stronger. My friend was a fighter and I am so proud of what she accomplished in that battle. I am so proud of what she accomplished her entire life. She was an incredible human being.
She was my rock. She was a mountain of support and an ocean of love. She was a valley of forgiveness and hills of pride and intelligence. She was everything to me. I loved her and I always will.
My friend, my soulmate, my sister, my confident, lost her battle to cancer.
I love you. Rest in peace my amazing friend. You will be greatly missed.
Cancer, let it be known that I fucking hate you. I fucking HATE you.
Also, FUCK YOU CANCER. FUCK YOU SO HARD.
