What cancer takes away (by Anne Boyer)

This is a long and aching read. It made my heart break all over again for those I have lost to cancer.

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.

  1. I watched my mother die slowly, over a 5 year period, from ovarian cancer. Back then is was an ugly, tortuous process. I see my mother in this. My father’s journey was no better. We need to know that the option of letting it happen is an OK option for some. I do not know what I would do, either. But I know I have an option. Not a happy option, but an option.
