THE CANCER JOURNEY CONTINUED
I was diagnosed with cancer four years ago
Four years ago I lost my left breast
Four years ago I had the lymph nodes removed
Four years ago I had 15 sessions of radiotherapy
And the doctors have done their best.
In my mind my cancer has gone
If I doubted that it would make me forlorn
I go for my check-ups twice every year
But when I go I sense a little fear!
Will THEY find something that I haven’t found!
Has it come back again though I felt so sound!
Once I have seen them and all is well
I carry on as normal as I still feel well!
What can I do? What can I say?
I live my life in the usual way.
I work as a chaplain to those who are sick
I play Crown Green bowls which gives me a kick!
I do whatever God puts in my way
And carry on in faith every single day.
Let us carry on each day that He gives
Let us thank our God for all He does.
IF HE WASN’T THERE, WHAT WOULD BECOME OF US!
