SURVIVING CANCER

 

This is not a pretty story.

 

When I was 21 years old they told me I had cancer. I was a young single parent with three kids living with a toxic man who beat me.

 

I underwent intense radiation treatments and ended up with severe radiation damage to the gut.  Over the years I underwent several reconstructive operations. None were sucessful. Every few years the repairs broke down.

Somebody messed up and burnt me.

I learned to live with it.

 

Radiation is forever.
