The Cancer Card

My aunt is in the hospital.  She is sick with pneumonia.  I stopped to bet her a Get Well card.

And there it was… “The Cancer Card.”

Pretty as it may be, it is still not a card anybody ever wants to get.

It is the only card I’ve seen a condition for.  I couldn’t bring myself to open it and read what it said.  I was on my break from lunch and needed to keep it together.

P.S. Please keep my Aunt in your thoughts, she’s been in the hospital for a few days and is pretty sick.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
