Being Joyful?

 Hi all and yes at this time of year when everyone should be joyous and bountifull it is hard to slot into those catergaries when cancer has been the only thing in "our" minds in the lead up to this time of year, I am 2 years into  Bladder cancer and have in the last couple of days been given the all clear for another 6 months so what do I have to complain about? I like the rest of our Cancer Community have chemo to keep me alive and the fact it keeps me alive suppreses the pain and suffering it gives me, well I am maybe not bouncing off the ceiling with joy but I am still able to post this and hope I can for some considerable time. Our lives are closely monitored and thankfully the care we are given by the proffessionals is the best and the many volunteers that revolved around us as cancer patients make life a life to be lived so Merry Christmas evreybody and hope you have courage and hope for the future.

Love and Best Wishes to all.
