Cancer In The Family


When there’s a lot of cancer,

In the family,

A person can’t help but wonder,

Is it going to happen to me?

It’s hit your sister, mother and grandmother,

Great aunts and uncles too.

There’s nothing else but to figure,

That’s it’s going to happen to you.

Cancer is a wicked disease,

That isn’t very fair.

The treatment makes you sick,

And you usually lose your hair.

Kids mostly handle it better,

Than most adults ever do.

Many stop to question,

Why on earth is this true?

Cancer used to be a death sentence,

When the diagnosis was made.

Now many people survive it,

And on this earth they stay.
