Cancer is a diagnosis nobody ever wants to get. But, like anything else in life, if and when the diagnosis comes there is nothing to do but to stand up and fight it head on. You could say that every cancer patient is a fighter, whether they like it or not.
In the fight against cancer, attitude is everything. The way that someone chooses to engage in this fight – and it is a daily fight – places a big role in their eventual success. Some people choose to begrudge their situation, wishing they had never run into such bad luck. Meanwhile, others choose to see it as a fight for their life, and they’re somehow able to continue to enjoy life in many unexpected ways.
In fact, some cancer patients even choose to get married during what others might dismiss as an awkward or inconvenient time. Talk about a strong spirit!
