In February 2012, my father was diangosed with Stomach Cancer. He passed away a short six weeks later.
As a caregiver and a daughter I know the struggles one faces after a cancer diangosis of a loved one, as well as personal challenges that are faced throughout the process.
The best way I have found to deal with this process is hope. Hope for a better 'today', tomorrow, week or month- hope for a world without cancer- hope for peace.
We all find hope in our own ways- religion, sports, activites...ect. However you find hope, hold it close. Here is how I find hope.
There is hope in each day. Find hope, create hope, spread hope. It will empower you and others.
My call to action is based on one of my favorite quotes. “I want to be like a sunflower, so that even on my darkest days I will stand tall and find the sunlight.” A sunflower is a symbol of hope to me, because even on bad days it remains hopeful for sunlight. I challenge everyone who has been affected by cancer in some way, shape or form to find a glimmer of hope in their day each day. Find a sunflower and post a picture of it. Paint a sunflower and post it. Spread the sunlight and hope. We can all be like a sunflower and find hope in each day. We can all stand tall on our darkest days and hope for better days ahead.
There aren't yet any responses to this call for action.
