Dear Cancer


Dear Cancer,

If you’re just a zodiac sign or a constellation in the sky, I would’ve loved you. Don’t get me wrong. I like reading my daily horoscope even if I know it’s just a waste of my time. And I also love gazing at the stars on a clear night.


Sadly, you’re not just a part of the constellation or a zodiac sign but also a disease that has killed millions, if not billions, and has afflicted millions of other unsuspecting individuals.


You have caused many people their lives and have taken away mothers, fathers, children, friends, uncles, aunts, grandmothers, cousins and many others from the people they love. You strike without warning and you give those you have afflicted a slow death.


First, you took my grandma. Second, my dear aunt. Now, my mother is suffering because of you. But you didn’t stop. You just continually go on your way causing havoc to anyone who comes your way. Lately, I heard that you’ve afflicted one of my childhood friends with one of your abnormally mutating killer cells. He’s still young to suffer such fate.


Why did you have to exist? If Pandora’s box was real, you should’ve stayed in it. Can’t you see? A lot of people are suffering and dying because of you. People are going to hate you. Others will dread you. Scientist are going to find a cure to get rid of you, and I pray that they find it fast before you take away all our friends families.


Please know that once you’re gone, I’m definitely not going to miss you.


The daughter of a cancer-stricken mom.


My heart goes out to all those who are stricken with cancer and their families. Know that you’re not alone. Be strong and have faith. My condolences to the families who have lost someone in the battle.


Families Are Forever.
