‘I can’t believe my dog has cancer’: How my dog got cancer and is now fighting to live her dream
The day I got home from work, I had an epiphany: I can’t imagine living with cancer.
My husband and I were both at work, and the day before we started the shift, we were on a walk in the park.
I stopped to ask our dogs, “What are we doing today?”
And they were all, “We’re going to go for a walk.”
We said, “OK,” and they just followed me into the woods.
I saw them in the distance, and I was like, “Whoa, what is that?”
I’m like, ‘Oh, I’ve got cancer.’
They’re like, “‘Uh, it’s something called prostate cancer.'”
The next day, I went to my doc, and he told me that my doctor had just diagnosed me with cancer, and that I had been diagnosed with the same disease.
I was totally devastated, but I had never felt more scared in my life.
The doctor said, ‘We’ve had a few tumors, and now we have a few more.’
“My family and I had some really close friends who were on our team, and my mom and dad were like, We can’t keep this up.
And they are the reason I’m still alive and kicking.” “
We were really fortunate to have some incredible people around us who helped us along the way, including my mom, my dad, and even my mom’s best friend, who I met when I was on the hospital ward.
And they are the reason I’m still alive and kicking.”
“I was never a doctor, but my mom has been my best friend since she was my first born.
I have to tell you, she was amazing to me.
She’s one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.”
“I’ve never been a doctor.
But my mom is a real badass.
She knows how to take care, and she knows how much she cares about people.
She always told me to stay positive and to always take care.
I never knew I was so blessed to be around people who cared so much about me.”
“The one thing I’ve learned from being cancer-free for so long is that there are so many things that can happen when you’re not a doctor.”
