My name is Eleanor

My name is Eleanor I have cancer, but it is not who I am. I am not a number or the result of a lab test. My name is Eleanor I am a baby at my mothers breast. I am a toddler being thrown high in the air by my father and giggling. I am a young girl playing with my dolls and my trucks. I am a teenage girl going on my first date full of nervous anticipation. I am graduating high school and trying to figure out what next. I am a young woman walking down the aisle with the love of my life. I am an employee and a homemaker I am a new mother. I love my family, my friends, roses, cooking and reading. I love watching sappy old movies and going through a box of tissues while munching on popcorn. I love to dance and sing. I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a sister, a granddaughter,a niece, an aunt, I am a grandmother and a great grandmother. I am all of these things and more but what I am not is a disease. I have cancer and it may destroy my body but it cannot touch my spirit or my soul. So you see although my body may have cancer it does not have me. My name is Eleanor.
