Day Twenty-Eight: A picture of something you are afraid of

I am terrified of cancer.

I worked as an Oncology RN for 6 months right after graduation, and those months are the closest I ever want to come to this life-stealing disease.  Sometimes I am a bit of a cancer hypochondriac . . . like every bruise could be a sign of leukemia.  Those 6 months exposed me to such suffering that I fear cancer for anyone.  I don't know if I have the type of bravery cancer patients and their caregivers emanate within me . . . and I hope to never find out.
