Skin Cancer

By , Maribel, WI
I’d never have thought I would have to hear the word.
Cancer.
I’d never have thought it would happen to someone I love.
It made me so scared.
I couldn’t show you I was scared, because you had to know it would be alright.
I will always remember when you told me.
As you uttered the word, I felt my breath get caught in my throat and my eyes sting with tears.
Thinking about it now, still makes me feel that way, even though I know you’re ok.
You were lucky.
I thank God every day for that.
It wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
Now it seems as though it’s everywhere.
I can’t help but feel like my breath stops every time I hear it.
Skin cancer.
I’m glad that the dermatologist caught it early.
I don’t know what I’d do without you.
You’re my only sister.
I love you.
