F*%K CANCER

At the time when my mother was diagnosed, I wrote this daily prayer for her. If you or a loved one is battling cancer, feel free to pass it along.

Daily Prayer

Fuck you, cancer.
You are not my fault.
I do not deserve you.

Fuck you, cancer.
You will not win.
I will beat you down until you are cowering in remission,
afraid to show your ugly head.

Fuck you, cancer.
You will not take this day from me,
and if you make me feel bad,
I will take a few breaths and remind you that this is not your day.

This is not your day to beat me.
This is not your day to steal my smile away.
This is not your day to take my time with my loved ones away from me.
This is MY day — as is every day.
And they will all belong to me until the day I die.

Which is not today.

AMEN. Fuck cancer.

—Written by Nicole Kristal for her mother, Jan Kristal
