"Every procedures and treatment was temporary. You will be able to stand up and live. Just wait."

I was a university student when I found out about my Ewing’s sarcoma. But from the beginning I began to understand that one day, I could live without cancer. I didn’t have any fear, I just wanted to start to start treatment as soon as possible. During my chemo and operations I had a very bad days when I was thinking about death. It was absolutely natural, but it was dangerous for my mental health. During this difficult time, my mother pushed me out from this deep black hole. I’m a lucky person to have such positive and strong people near me like my mother! Try to focus on that you are alive and you, of course, have a lot of reasons to live. Every procedures and treatment was temporary. You will be able to stand up and live. Just wait.
