Best wishes Fred, you do not know me, but like everyone at the lane (I never thought I would ever say this) I hope to hear you soon. The poem below was written by a 19 year old boy to his brother who fought and beat cancer, I hope it might help lift you a bit.
Nineteen and all alone, visions of things all gone wrong, hoping and praying this disease will go away, knowing for now it is here to stay.
Just to find a few friends in passing, wishing they will be true and everlasting.
Sometimes alone and so afraid trying to figure out why its stayed.
Trying to move on in every hour and fight with all our power. moving on each day learning more and wanting to stay.
Never give up and never stop trying for you like me are to young to be dieing.
I must move on, do just as I do, we know this plan can work for you.
When the tubes of life run through your veins, forget about your sorrows and your pains.
Look up for tomorrow and begin to live, you like me have so much to give.
Be strong my friend and keep moving on, I know I'm preaching but this can't be wrong.
Today is a new day so please don't abuse it, if you do it will be gone and we will lose it.
So to you my friend lets step up to the plate once again, you're feeling alone but you're not, keep up the fight give it all ya got.....
