Cancer – #JusJoJan the 5th, 2023

Welcome to the daily prompt! Today is your fifth prompt for Just Jot it January 2023, and it’s brought to you by Lauren. Thank you, Lauren! Please be sure to visit Lauren’s blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 5th 2023, is “cancer.” Use the word “cancer” any way you’d like. Have fun writing!

I felt the weight of this prompt.

The C word, Cancer, scares me.

It’s taken many I have loved along the way.

But there is always hope. Recently, I heard that there is a drug that has been trialled, which could reverse some cancers.

Wouldn’t that be a blessing?

I just hope it doesn’t become a life lottery, that those who can afford it can have it, and those who can’t, spend their time wishing and hoping…

A few years ago, I did the Cancer Research Moonlight Walk with some friends, and we raised quite a lot of money. Nearly £2000!

It was a beautiful, tough 12.5-mile walk around Central London at night time. It needed to be tough, though, along with having a few laughs to remind us of what we were walking for. Who we were raising money for.

    I feel the same way, Ritu- fear and hope.

    My brother runs a nonprofit that raisers money for pediatric cancer research. He began this after the lost his son/my nephew at age 5. We are hopeful that this awful disease can one day be mitigated

    Let us hope that a remedy for cancer will soon be found, Sis. Preventive medication would be even better. Best wishes, Michael
