“Acceptance is what allowed me to live my life as I always have, not letting cancer bring me down. I accepted cancer in my life with open arms because it is a part of me whether I like it or not. It is a part of my life now. To be accepting of what comes into your life when you have no control over it is a humbling feeling. It allows you to can keep living, smiling, loving, healing, hoping, praying, feeling, and fighting to the end.”
