Tears and fears surface
Toxins fill my veins
AC cell killers attack
The good and the bad

Chemo therapy shows no mercy
Affecting hair and nails
Robbing me of dignity
Replacing it with fatigue

With supportive prayers
A few modern drugs
God's promises and inner-strength
I face this long harrowing fight
Tempered by battle
Aided by family
Supported by faith
Encouraged by friends

Gifts from God:


The book continues with Cured of Cancer?. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Thank you wolf6249107 for the perfect artwork, a wing and a prayer. Please remember I am not a poet, I write romance. This is free verse and the puncuation is minimal.

My chemo begins tomorrow. My chemo oncologist wanted to start it a few weeks ago, but my incission had not healed.
This therapy will kill my white blood cells as well as my malignant cells. An injection the following day called Neulasta, will aid the growth of new white cells. An expensive pill called Neulasta is supposed to help the vomiting and nausea. I have been told I will lose all my hair and my fingernails will become discolored and possibly fall off. Since my immune system will be weakened I am supposed to avoid crowds with colds. I laughed at this one, I teach first grade. I also cannot afford any cuts or bruises.

My chemo dr, calls it AC, the acutal drugs are Adriamycin and Cyton. My treatments will be every other week for 8 weeks, then I switch to every week and a new drug will be added.

Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. They mean more to me than I can express.
