Sunday, June 7th is Cancer Survivor's Day! It's a special day for me, as I have had cancer twice, and my mother and father have both had cancer. To say that I hate cancer is an understatement! It's such a terrible disease! Unfortunately, everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer! It's beyond an epidemic in our area!

So today, let's pause! Look at the sun, take a breath, hug your family! If you have had cancer and are here today you are a survivor! With all the strife in the world, and the COVID-19 pandemic I am reminded that life is fleeting. Enjoy today and everyday that you're on Earth. Make a difference, make someone smile.
