Cancer Doesn't Change Anything

October 11, 2009
Cancer. Yeah, I said the word. Don’t freak. It seems whenever you say that word, everyone around you starts tip toeing around you. I don’t want your sympathy. I don’t want anyone’s. Sympathy won’t solve anything. It won’t make things easier. Just let me continue my life. Let me hang out with my friends, fail a test if I deserved to fail, have a fever without anyone rushing me to the hospital. Let me live my life. I will survive, I will. If you want to help then you can act normally around me. But please, I don’t want sympathy. I will survive. I know I will. Please quit telling me I will. So now you know I have cancer, don’t let it change anything.

I like it. The first and last lines are good but I feel like you could lead into the last line better. Throughout the article you made it seem like the reader already knew about the naarator's cancer. Maybe you could say "Oh, you didn't know? Yeah, I have cancer. Don't let it change anything."
