What Cancer Cannot Take

November 29, 2019

I wanted to share the following poem shared from someone I advocate for who became a very good friend over the years. I cherish our 6 AM conversations, talking about life, treatment options, mindset, family, art, food, wellness, life and love. She has taught me so much. She and the countless patients I've been privileged to advocate for over the past decade, taught me the meaning of life and what matters. They know that we are in this together, always!



"Stage 4 Cancer" doesn't define you, if you don't let it, which is obviously a challenge but it can be done. I've seen it. It starts with getting rid of the moniker "Stage 4" which is a great disservice, as there are varying degrees of "Stage 4."



Telling someone they are "Stage 4" can mean very different things. I've advocated for and navigated the care of "Stage 4" pancreatic cancer patients who are now NO Evidence of Disease (defying the 3 month survival predictions). We are now organizing a group of my favorite Superstar Team of physicians to study their cases to help them become part of the cure. That is meaning and passionate purpose personified and that is what drives me every day to do this life-saving work.



So, I don't buy into "Stage 4," I put my faith into the best physicians in the world, mindset, wellness, advocacy, education, friendship and HOPE! I put my faith in patient heroes.



Friend, by your side always!


What Cancer Cannot Do


It cannot cripple love

It cannot shatter hope

It cannot corrode faith

It cannot destroy peace

It cannot kill friendship

It cannot suppress memories

It cannot silence courage

It cannot invade the soul

It cannot steal eternal life

It cannot conquer the spirit
