Charlotte, Hepatoblastoma, by Steve Tyssen

...having a scar is a small price to pay

Cancer: a word by definition many fear and rightfully so. Cancer and I have a love-hate relationship; I hate it for the problems it has caused, and for nearly taking my life, but on the other hand I love it for the love of life it gave me and the appreciation I have now for the small things. I hate the memories and constant reminder but love the story that I can share and the encouragement it can give people. Life isn't all bad and the same can be said for cancer. 

I am a lucky and blessed one, I survived and so having a scar is a small price to pay. As a survivor it is important to share my story to support current patients and families, and to pass on hope. Because without hope there isn't much.
