I couldn’t have said it better myself

The other night my brother’s friend Tom (currently kicking Leukemia’s ass with style and grace while helping others along the way- http://goteamtom.org/) sent me a link to a post written by a 28 year old Leukemia survivor:

http://www.wordsworthsharing.com/things-i-wish-i-was-told-when-diagnosed-with-cancer.html

I sat with this piece and read it twice initially and cried both times. I sobbed because it perfectly put my experience into words in a way that I have not been able to summarize myself. From changing relationships to the intense fear of facing my own mortality, this guy covered it all so simply and eloquently. I can’t tell you how many times someone has said: “I can’t even imagine what this is like for you”. If you have ever wondered, please take a minute to read this post.

Here is a little taste-

“You will begin to hear your voice changing. That voice is who you are becoming in the face of mortality. Listen to that voice. It will be the purest, most authentic version of you that you have ever known. Bring that person into the world- strengths and vulnerabilities and everything between. Be that person forever. “-Jeff Tomczek
