I will do all that is in my power to help those that now suffer from cancer. If I can keep one person from being alone, it will be worth reliving the pain once again. That is what survivorship means to me.

This world can take you, and any potential legacy, without any warning. What matters is how you spend your impermanence: either chasing after superficial numerical values that can't define a person or living each moment like it's your last and squeezing the life out of every drop of joy it can offer you.
