Cancer is SO Limited!!! (A Must READ!!!)

I saw this and knew I had to show it to the world! My dad died of cancer over 9 years ago! He wasn't physically there in person to watch me graduate from college, see me get married or meet my husband and kids (and obviously more)! Total bummer! I don't like cancer!!!

I've often thought about cancer being so powerful and so unlimited because it affects almost everyone in someway.......until today. I saw this post at Craft Goodies and had a change in perspective! Read how beautiful and powerful these new thoughts are!

Cancer is so limited.
It cannot destroy love, it cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot destroy people, it cannot kill friendship.
It cannot surpress memories, it cannot silence courage.
It cannot invade the soul, it cannot steal eternal life.
It cannot conquer the spirit.

Wow! Brings tears to my eyes! I am printing this out and giving it to every member of my family and any acquaintance in the future who is diagnosed or loses a family member to cancer as a gift of condolence! I wish I would have had this 10 years ago!

Please share this with everyone you know who has lost someone from or is currently fighting cancer!!!!

  1. Thank you. We are fighting the good fight at the moment.

  2. Thank you so much for this post. You'll never know how deep it moved me. Thank you, again.

  3. That's powerful!
    It's been 11 years since my hubby's dad died to Cancer rather suddenly I might add, so this post hits home, he too did not get to see us get married or all his grandchildren but his memory lives so strong in our hearts.

    Thank you!

  4. My aunt just died from cancer last week. Its still really hard for me. I like the part of it not stealing eternal life.

  5. Thanks for the post, that is really amazing. I too hate cancer. My mom was diagnosed with bone cancer when I was in 3rd grade and she died when I was in 7th grade. She was an amazing women. She fought hard but lost her leg in her first surgery which they thought would stop the cancer but it did not after many surgeries it eventually spread all over her body.
    I still remember after school we would go to MD Anderson (we where lucky to live in a Houston suburb)to visit her and she always smiled and laughed with us and acted like she was fine. But now as adult I know she had just gotten chemo and was in lots of pain but she didn't want us to know that then. I try to remember that she didn't miss my childhood, graduations, wedding, children, etc she just had a different seat for it - heaven. But I still wish I had her to go to and ask for advice, have her to sew and quilt with.
    Thanks again for sharing. Sorry my post is so long!

  6. My dad died of cancer when I was a teenager. I love that saying :) So true!!!

  7. How Priceless! I'm going to copy it and plan on making something with it and I already know exactly who I want to have it besides me.....a new project is being born. THANK YOU!

  8. Fighting the good fight here too, and just saw this saying today in my doctors office. It wasn't near as nicely done as this...thanks for sharing!!

  9. Thanks for sharing. My son, 26 years old, father of two, passed away 4 1/2 years ago from a cancerous brain tumor. Wish I would have had this saying with me everyday since June 18, 2006 (Father's Day).

  10. We have had three children with cancer and one passed away two years ago and I love this saying. I have made what I call "cancer journals" with composition books, covered with scrapbook paper and then added this saying to the front. I have made serveral and have donated to a local children's hospital to give to those families who have been recently diagnosed. Such an inspiring saying.

  11. Thanks so much for sharing this! Cancer sucks, but this saying is so uplifting!

  12. thank you for sharing. My husband's brother passed away seven years ago. We too, mourn the things that he never got to see. Especially my husband becoming a father.

    This is something we will pass on!

  13. Michelle,
    Thank you for sharing this with me. I printed out one for each of my family members. This is such a good reminder. Thanks for thinking of me.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I always like to know what you think of the projects I highlight!
