Found this poem while looking at some treatment option information and it really struck a cord with me..so I thought I would share:

A Poem by Paul Cox

"He lost the battle to

cancer," you say.

Cancer's the winner?

Do you see it that way?

To die is to lose?

Is that how it ends?

So then can you tell me,

Does anyone win?

Death comes to all,

So everyone loses?

Why play the game

If that's how it is?

I fail to see it

That way at all.

Play the game how you want

You make the call.

When it's the end

Only you and God know

If you win or lose

And which way you'll go.

So don't tell me I lost

for that is a lie.

It's how you live

Not how you die.
