Topic: Interesting quote
I saw this a few months ago on a traveling cancer art show that was at the practice office where my personal physician works. Unfortunately it wasn't signed so I can't credit anyone.
I thought it was interesting and copied it into my palm pilot. I was going through some memos today and came across it and decided to share:
"The way you encounter life is the way you encounter cancer. The illness will not change your personality nor will you become another person, but you are offered the chance of putting a different order into the priorities of your life."
I'm not entirely sure I agree with the part about your personality not changing, but I do tend to agree with the rest.
"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is. Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.
