A Poem on Cancer’s Breaking News

Breaking News:

Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales at age 42 has cancer.

King Charles, age 75, also has cancer.

Cancer, an equal opportunity disease.

Class, race, religion do not matter.

My heart aches for the royal family

Sure, they have the resources for the best care possible

Sure, they have outside help not manyof us regular people have.


Cancer does notcare.

Breaking News

Any one ofus stricken by cancer remembers our own breaking news.

Our diagnosis revealed, sharing with our families and loved ones.

Don’t look at me differently; I am still the same person

With cancer — not defining me, but a part of me —

We have cancer.

Uninvited cellsinvaded not only our bodies but our spirit, our souls.

Fight, fight, fight

A carnage like no other; cancer can be brutal

We are now warriors

Facing the biggest challenge of our lives

The term “lost the battle to cancer” bothers me

There are no losers

There is only the disease

I stand in solidarity with the royal family

Although there is not anything royal about a girl from Brooklyn

I know cancer

I have never been the same
