"Stay Away From My Companion" by Barb Hensongispsaca
She's my companion - stay away.
She causes problems, loves the fray.
She moved right in, she's here to stay.
She always has to have her way.

She's better known as the 'Big C'.
She's buried deep inside of me.
Each cell she owns will n'er be free,
they're more in me than there should be.

I've named her Jasper Hill so I
can yell at her, I'm not that shy.
'Cause when I hurt and need to cry,
I cuss at her and she knows why.

So stay away from Jasper Hill,
she lived here once, she lives here still.
She took my soul against my will...
please stay away from Jasper Hill.

She'll lead your mind away each day,
you'll never know the game she plays.
You'll feel at peace 'til comes the day
when Jasper Hill holds life at bay.

You'll feel secure, you'll think you've won,
but Jasper Hill is never done.
Has no regrets, not even one,
'cause death to Jasper Hill is fun.

The book continues with Ted Takes On The Cat. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
amojicay thank you for permission to use your picture.

When I went for treatment, I was told to name my cancer. That way I have a name to yell at when I feel the need. It is an adversary like no other, but adding a name lessens the terror of the impact for a lot of people. Jasper Hill is my adversary.
