How do YOU spell cancer!

and what does that even mean? 

When I was diagnosed, I received all sorts of advice. Advice like…it’s all about your attitude. One friend even told me, who cares how you spell it or say it. Don’t dignify this disease by spelling it correctly…it’s OK to color outside the lines when you have {k}ancer. That advice kind of stuck with me as I went through treatment and still stays with me today. 

 

However you want to look at it…YOU are a fighter…YOU are a survivor…YOU are a woman who has earned the right to spell it and say it any way you like. You have earned the right to color outside the lines.
