    That is a great question.
    I actually feel down most of the time, it sucks.
    I used to have a lot of plans for my retirement future!
    Now, my HOPE is that I live for a few more years?
    I hope that if I die, I will be reunited with My mother, and others who have passed before Me ( that thought actually comforts me a bit )
    Cancer took my mother in 1997, I was holding her hand when she passed. I miss her and I want to be with her again, but not to soon, I have family, still here on earth that need me.
    I HOPE! that when I pass, I am not in a hospital, like my mother was, but at home, and I HOPE, that my son is holding my hand when I pass!
    I HOPE! that I am able to make an impact on the lives of others, not just my family and friends.
    But others, who suffer from this terrible Blood Cancer, we all are fighting?
    I don’t know how to do that?
    But I feel that God has seen fit to keep me alive, for a purpose.
    I can only Pray that it is, to in some small way, help someone else
    Even if just to give HOPE to someone else
    I HOPE that Cancer is eradicated from this earth, so no one need to suffer any more
    When I am feeling down, I have HOPE for a miracle, not just for me, but for everyone.
    This venue, of being able to express myself, has given me new HOPE!
    I always feel better, after I sign off of this web site.
    So I guess? this also gives me HOPE

      It’s tough to see and feel all that cancer puts us through. I’m glad this site makes you feel better. We all need that.

    Hi Cindy 🙂
    What gives me hope is when I’m able to survive and do; what was deemed not the case when diagnosed. Hope is about trying to defeat and or continue beating the odds.

    What gives me hope is looking at my granddaughter. Because of her, my husband, and daughters I am trying to eat healthier and take care of myself better. I wish I did this earlier then things may be different. I have hope that a cure for cancer will be found. I also try to enjoy something everyday. Life is short, no matter who you are. Just live for today because none of know what tomorrow will bring.

    When I start to feel down, I try to distract myself. I dont give myself a lot of time to think. Luckily I’m able to work and I work a lot. I have a granddaughter I care for and an online class I’m taking. I have goals and I am very excited about accomplishing them. I guess my answer would be that I just keep myself to busy to focus on my feelings. It does help.
