We are strong and we won’t give up
But if it is true, and cancer is there to test us, then I strongly believe it is there to test the best of us. Whoever you are, whatever age and from wherever you come from, you can turn round to cancer and go “No”! You may have chosen me over somebody else, but I am going to fight you just as hard because I am a strong person. A strong person who will not give in. And yes, cancer did pick me. But I am going to make it wish it hadn’t. This blog was written by Darren, who is a childhood cancer survivor, after having Acute Myeloid Luekaemia when he was 11 in 1996.
