Dear Cancer

As a Recreational Therapist/Child Life Specialist, I often told my patients to write a Dear Cancer letter as a way to cope with their diagnosis. Oddly enough, I have never written one.

A few months ago, Elephants and Tea asked people to write Dear Cancer letters for their magazine. I am someone who writes when the emotions hit, and this prompt caused me to think about what I had gone through and think about what I would have told my cancer. I found writing the letter was very cathartic and I am excited to share it with you.
