In His Own Words

For Mother's Day this year, Brandon's wife Christina gave me a framed copy of some notes Brandon wrote on July 14, 2011. At that time he had just had a PET scan as a follow-up to treatment and was awaiting the results. Anyone who has had cancer, or who loves someone who has or has had cancer, knows the anxiety of waiting for test results. 

Here is what Brandon was thinking at this time only two short years ago -- spelling mistakes and all!

7/14 (2011)
Gotta Stay Strong!
Can't Give In!
This is ridiculous. The negative thoughts
just keep trying to creep in. Can't let them
take over. Must fight them back.
Sick of all the sympathy.
