Battle Cancer


This week my uncle lost his battle to cancer. He fought it bravely for 4 years. My (step) Dad was diagnosed shortly after my uncle. And my dad passed away first; in June of 2016. My first dog, Einstein, passed away at the end of that year from the same cancer that killed my dad. And yet my uncle still battled the illness. My youngest cousin, his baby girl, got married in October 2018. At that point my uncle was spending half his week at home and the other half in the hospital. But, this week he couldn't battle anymore.

I'm glad my uncle is no longer in pain. And no longer has to endure the treatment to battle his cancer. It's so hard to believe that there's still no cure for cancer. Other than going through Chemo and radiation.

So when I saw this week's sketch, Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 477, over at the My Favorite Things blog. There was only one stamp that I thought of using.
