#InspirationTuesday. Tuesdays are quickly becoming my favorite day of the week as it has become the day where we are making a concerted effort to share uplifting messages with our readers. Whether it’s an inspirational quote or a paradigm-shifting speech (much like the one given by Stuart Scott in July, 2014), a few words of wisdom from someone who has shared a similar journey can really give us hope and strength- two much needed weapons in the fight against cancer.
A little bit about this particular quote: The massive amounts of chemo given to my husband Alan was having no effect on his cancer. In fact, the opposite was happening- his tumors were growing at a rapid pace no matter what chemo cocktail we tried. We needed something to lift our spirits and give us strength to take on another day. Then the most wonderful thing happened… Alan began receiving daily emails from his best friend’s daughter, each one contained a message that resonated with him. He now looked forward to checking his email every day. The quote above was one of his favorites. I hope you find as much comfort from it as he/we did.
