"I had no control over what was happening to me and my life and my body. It's the reason that nothing drives me more batshit than when people even with the best of intentions, call me an inspiration or a warrior or something that implies I even did a thing. I think 'cancer witness' is more appropriate. I watched it happen. I saw abnormal numbers in my blood-work. I read my scan report, tumors two, maybe three. I watched the chemo nurse push the vincristine in to my IV. I didn't fight. I didn't battle. I just sat under the blankets and tried to swallow my vomit. My body was just a vessel for this happening, this squashing of a mutiny launched by some cells with a God complex".
And to quote Madison quoting author Joyce Meyer: "Courage is fear that has said it's prayers and decided to go forward anyway. So we walk forward in faith and courage. Cancer will not steal my joy today".
