The following was found by an elderly friend of mine in the Bible of his older sister after she had passed away from breast cancer. He belongs to a family where there is a strong family link for breast cancer. I am passing it on. Cancer is Limited Cancer is so limited It cannot cripple love It cannot shatter hope It cannot corrode faith It cannot eat away peace It cannot destroy confidence It cannot kill friendship It cannot shut out memories It cannot silence courage It cannot invade the soul It cannot reduce Eternal Life It cannot quench the Spirit It cannot lessen the power Of the Resurrection.

Hi Samex I too felt that it was a poem of hope, regardless of any religious persuasion, so hope that it is of benefit to someone. Sometimes I think in our desire not to offend anyone we forget that religion does bring hope to a lot of people. Regards Sailor

It certainly does and sometimes I think that it must be of benfit for so many who have their faith to be able to fall back on it during tough times.Is fall back the right word? I have often considered my spirituality and it often just creates more questions than answers for me and at times I envy those who are convinved of their path. S

Hi Samex I find my faith is not something that I fall back on in tough times but a core strength that is with me always. Being conscious of it in the good times removes the fear that future bad times would otherwise bring. Good blessings to you and all on CC. 🙂

If you leave out a few of the phrases it is not necessarily a religious piece. I have have seen very similar a few times on Facebook. I do not know how to copy and put on here . If I did know I could share many good inspirational pieces. Some do not refer to cancer but would be helpful to people with cancer. Thanks ,Sailor.
