Any cancer diagnosis is terrifying, but breast cancer for me feels like a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Although I feel fine, a visit is not worth the lives of other people.
One of my biggest regrets is that I wish I was able to spend more time with her.
Even when my anxiety and my fears overwhelm me, I know I can power through for her.
They decided that the pennies must be from Grandmother, and eventually the tradition evolved, so now we try to guess what she’s “saying.”
Your sacrifices and your sweet smile will stay with me forever.
One of the things that’s so lovable about the oldies in my life is their complete incongruence with modern times, and their willingness to be themselves regardless.
My blood runs with saltwater that I’ve never known. Because here, I am within and without my own culture.
