First I want to thank INTERGALARTIC for posting.
Great Blog! See for yourself: intergalartic.wordpress.com
This where I found my inspiration for this post.
This where I found this:
“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all you might. And when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry get good and angry.
Try to be alive.
You will be dead soon enough.”
– Ernest Hemingway
Yeah – Try to be alive!
Every day of our life is precious.
Because we don’t know how many days we have…
I’m celebrating 5 years of my war against cancer.
Yeah – 5 years ago the Doctor told me: “You have a golf ball size tumor in the middle of your chest….
Yeah – This was the day when I realized how precious life is.
This was the day when I decided to live every day. Not just exist.
And this what I’m doing faithfully all those 5 years.
I have done some research on life expectancy after chemo and radiation treatment.
Shortly speaking – they say – that only about 25% of cancer patients ( over 60 y.o. ) live up to 5 years – between cancer diagnoses and death.
Well, I think that I have survived those 5 years, because I believed that I could.
And of course, I was doing every day something abut that, like: Eating healthy foods ( the ones that cancer don’t likes ), taking supplements. And just keeping busy living my life: working, blogging, writing and promoting my Book.
So what is my plan for the next 5 years?
I’m just going to keep doing what I was doing…
So – How many elderly people survive 10 years after cancer diagnosis and treatment?
I don’t know. I can’t find that info. It must be very low %.
I can survive if I believe that I can.
Thank you for reading.
Be alive and healthy.
God Bless you all.
