I am fighting to stay alive not because I fear death, but because I love life.

The greatest privileges:
You are saved.
You are a child of Most High God.
You are co-heirs with Christ.
You share in Christ suffering, life adversities.
You share in Christ glory, strength of will and survival of life’s difficulties.

When I put down Lance Armstrong’s book, I understood something profoundly. Edie, if you can move, you’re not sick. I decided right then and there that no matter what cancer did to me I would continue to move. Movement was what the physical body was designed to do; it was how it coped and functioned. Movement was vitality. It was life.
I would move. Always. No matter what. Until my last breath, I would move.

The limitations in life do not necessary limit you.

I walk to rid myself of the terror of cancer, and to overcome the fear of it coming back. The fear may never completely fade, but actively engaging life – whatever that may involve – reminds me of the joy each day can bring.

There is no limit to what you can do,when you focus on your strength.

Act on your instinct. It is the spirit of your divinity.

This story is not about avoiding death, but living life.
