Accept or Stand Up

MUSIC: "Saturday in the Park"

I took these pictures on a very cold day. For the most part, the local ducks are just sitting around but if you notice closely, one in particular is ready to roll!

Never give up.
And never, under
any circumstances, face the facts!!!
There is a very strong message in the above quote for cancer patients to follow. On Sunday, my husband will celebrate another birthday! It will be a very special day and one for which our family will count many blessings. He is soon approaching his third anniversary of survival!!! Orginally he was given a very short term for longevity, but he's beaten the odds, not by a small margin but by a gigantic leap!
He's proven the medical experts were wrong.....BIG TIME....but most of all he's proven that you just cannot always accept the facts as the whole truth and nothing but the truth. You have to take your health in your own hands and maintain a strong positive attitude and a determination to fight CANCER.
I know the medical professionals most definitely have to follow the results of a patient's tests in order to make their diagnosis, but in reality, those results are not always your final option. People ask my husband all the time what is his strategy for continuing to do so well. His answer:
"Keep positive and don't give up!"
Take another look at the first picture in this post. Basically, you have two is to just lay down and accept a discouraging diagnosis "OR" stand up, spread your wings and be determined to give it your best fight! The choice is yours!
If you choose the second option, it won't always be a walk in the park, but at least you will have stood like a warrior against your cancer!
