Celebrating World Cancer Day

Today is World Cancer Day, and I'm here to celebrate! Why would I celebrate a day linked to such an awful disease? Let me tell you why. First and foremost, I must be clear: I do not celebrate cancer, itself. Rather, I celebrate the faces, stories and lives of those I've lost to the disease, those in the fight, those who've survived, and those whose journeys have yet to unfold. These people are why I celebrate World Cancer Day. I celebrate to honor their lives, their stories, their beauty; their mark on this world.
