I’ve been thinking about starting my own campaign for people who are similar to me. That is people who have cancer and want to carry on life as much as they can. This includes people who know that they are going to die of cancer like me, but just don’t know when and those that are going through treatment but have a positive attitude.
When you tell people that you have cancer it always gets a different reaction, their never sure what to say, and I understand that. There not going to come straight out and say ‘are you going to die!’ although you know really that’s what they want to know. Personally I just tell them straight, so they don’t have to ask - ‘I have cancer, I will die of it, but don’t know when, hopefully I have a good few years, but it might only be a couple, if that.’ but the important thing is I’m Not Dead Yet’
Since I started writing this blog I’ve read and been contacted by people who are similar to me that carry on with their lives and some that are not just carrying on, but doing amazing things. So to let everyone know that we have cancer, but we are able to carry on I’m starting my own little Not Dead Yet campaign.
If you have cancer and want to join in to let people know that you are still alive and able to do things, simple add the logo that I have created below to either your emails or your blog/website and if you want to, link it back to here to explain what it is or write you own explanation.
Lets make people aware, that just because we have cancer, doesn’t mean we are dead just yet! We are alive and probably more keen on living than most people and determined to continue to do as much as we can when we can.
