You don’t have to give up hope

During the struggles of life it is hard not to give up hope. It is actually very easy to give up; but don’t. Please don’t give up hope. Through all of the infertility, loss and cancer I wanted to give up so many times but I didn’t. And now I get to watch my daughter grow up; which at one time I didn’t think it would be possible.

Today as I gave my daughter a bath watching the foam letters float around; all I could think about was how four years ago I really didn’t think this would be possible. All of the little things that I get to do with her that would have never happened if I would have given up hope.

After we lost our son there was still hope. Hope for peace and hope for another baby. We were lucky to receive both.

When I think back to those dark days of chemo there was hope. Hope to be cured and hope to never have to go through it again. So far it has come true.

Whether you hope, wish, pray or do all three keep on. Whatever anyone tells you keep hoping for the best possible outcome. You may be surprised how truly wonderful that outcome can be 🙂

What if?

What if every insurance covered all prescriptions, procedures and tests?

What if medical bills weren’t so overwhelming?

What if people could afford that one drug that buys them time; time to see their child get married or meet their new grandchild?

What if new research produces a cure?

What if insurance companies rates weren’t so high so people could afford them?

What if the new plan the Doctor comes up with works and you are cured?

What if we all had a little faith and hope?

What if we all believed in our selves and others?

What if?
