Why me? Have you ever asked that question of yourself when diagnosed with cancer? In a particular context that could mean oh, poor me. Let’s put that on hold for a minute.
Saturday, April 14, 2018 I attended the 7th Annual Sarcoma Day Event held at the Milwaukee County Zoo. I attend for several reasons; First, it is well planned with good speakers and updates in Sarcoma research. Second, there are sundry good breakout groups. Third, I get to visit with friends who are fellow survivors. The problem this year, is I didn’t get to visit with John or Jamie or Barry and others. They were not at the Sarcoma Day Event because they lost their battle to cancer.
It was at that point I asked myself, "Why Me?" Good question, different context.
"Why Me?" Perhaps I’ve been given a lease on life to perform a different mission. Maybe it’s to write this blog. Maybe it’s to lend support to those battling cancer. Maybe it’s to use my platform to seek funding for Sarcoma research funds. Maybe it’s to just listen to a cancer friend in need.
So, I ask myself, “Why Me?"
