What Cancer Cannot Do
 
Cancer cannot cripple Love,
It actually makes it overlow.
 
Cancer Cannot shatter Hope,
it actually clarifies what hope is for.
 
Cancer cannot corrode Faith,
it actually strengthens faith's convictions.
 
Cancer cannot conquer the Spirit ,
because courage faces cancer's affliction.
