Keep Looking Up Child! a cancer journey.

11 Oct

fullsizeoutput_d57

When gathered together, we find our light.

As each spark shifts and multiplies,

Scattering its radiance on our ordinary lives

Like everything precious, before a given diagnosis

 

Or a recovering moment we hide behind forged smiles,

fancy garments, flawless makeup,

Isn’t it more valuable when shared?

Like every common miracle

Made of the effects of stars.

 

We must let the light shine

And then watch out for it falling too

On each other’s faces

During trials and triumphant

 

So, count the beams, yeah catch them

Reflect upon them

See the HOPE, live the promise.

Never hide your face in a setback

Keep looking up child,

Never hide your fear in silence.

 

Listen to those you cherish,

Hold them in your arms,

Let them hear your heartbeat

Tell your truth with tears

Tell your story with laughter

Tell your love with joy

Show the world, You are still greater than cancer!

Excerpt from upcoming book,

‘RELENTLESS’ 

fighting cancer with a story line

Its OCTOBER, cancer awareness month! Be a movement for awareness in your community!

Let’s continue to empower cancer survivors, encourage early detection/treatment, comfort families of those who lost the fight, but won the battle and count down to Team #GreaterThanCancer – OCT 26th Soup’s On Cancer Fundraising Dinner and ‘Relay for Life’ – American Cancer Society Cancer Awareness Walk on OCT 27th in Farmington Hills, Michigan.

Yours in HOPE,

Yinka.

    Your words here really touched me, you just reflected the struggles that comes with cancer survivors. Even though they say you are cancer free, the struggles of the medications, constant checking for any growth, hormones imbalance, body changes after chemo or radiation it is endless…
    But waking up everyday, seeing my 3 year old baby and husband gives me hope to keep going through therapy, for them and then for me.
    The heaviness and emotional torture of insensitive comments from people around you, sometimes has to ignored just for the miracle started can be completed.

    Look up Girl! We all beat cancer like a drum!!
    Counting down to your book launching, see you soon for the documentary.
