I have I have Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. It's very treatable, but I wrote this regarding cancer.  I hope it's not offensive, but it's how I feel.

 I finally decided to watch The Walking Dead on Netflix and I must tell you, it's a fascinating show and it isn't just about zombies. The message The Walking Dead gives is about survival. Many characters in the show want to give up and commit suicide because they think there is no hope for humanity. What they don't realize is that THEY THEMSELVES are the hope. It is their duty to fight, protect, and reproduce to ensure the survival of the human species. Why would we want a parasite to take over the world? We fight dictators and give up on a parasite? I think not. This rings true in my own life. I'm not going to give up and play victim to a few mutated DNA cells. The cancer cells are going to meet my proverbial crossbow head on because I refuse to give in. I will fight for me. I will fight for my family. Survival is mandatory. Giving up is NOT an option.

To cancer: ”One wrong move, and you get an arrow in the a**. Just so you know." - Daryl, Walking Dead
