Cancer is like a new car

Like most things in life, when you first get something, hear of something, or discover something, it's new and sometimes exciting and exhilarating whether positive or negative.  Like buying a new car, the excitement of it, the smell, the newness all just consumes you.  You wake up in the morning and check the garage to see if it's really there or if it was just a dream.  You're instantly relieved when your shiny new car is still sitting there, waiting for you to turn the key and cruise around feeling like you just went to school in a new outfit. 
On the flip-side, Cancer is something that some people have the shocking and usually terrible news of discovering.  You wake up every day and it's there waiting for you.  No matter how much you try to wish it away or hope it's not you that was diagnosed, the reality of it, just like opening the door to your garage, grips you and no matter how hard  you try, can't escape the fact that it exists.  For the people that face this horrible reality, like our daughter, your only means to cope with it is hope, support, love and continual reinforcement that "IT CAN BE BEAT"!  To beat anything in life or to succeed you have to be tenacious and you must persevere at any cost.

My point?  New cars are only new for a short period of time.  The excitement wears off.  So too does the news of someone getting cancer.  My daughter still wakes up every day and has to face this terrible disease and no matter how hectic her family and friends lives become, she still sits here and fights everyday.  Your support is desperately needed and your love to her is as precious as life itself.  Macey is still here, and anything from anyone reading this means so much to her.  A quick note on the blog, a card, a visit, anything that lets her know we are all still behind her means the world to her!  We continue to receive wonderful thoughts and prayers from so many people.  So please, don't forget about Macey, she needs all of us. 

Thank you.
