Last week I came across an interesting essay written by a young adult (27 year old) with cancer. It is the winner of Glamour magazine's annual essay contest (that I actually entered too).
This woman, Andrea Coller, and her story are not your 'typical upbeat cancer story'. She's very real and I appreciated seeing someone write about their true feelings. I can relate to some it and just enjoyed seeing someone else's view. Amongst her angst, I still see hope which shows itself differently in everyone.
Warning if you read it, some of it is pretty detailed with raw accounts of medical stuff and it's pretty sad but also inspiring.

(and yay to Glamour for featuring a story about a young adult cancer survivor!)
Today, I am grateful for: a really fun and belated dinner tonight, exams coming so close to being over (thurs.), a wonderful weekend, and so much more, God, friends, family.
