I imagine a world where people see beyond color, shape and size.
I imagine a world where I can be accepted for ME and not be told I’m a sellout or that I “speak well.”
I imagine a world where employers work to understand how cancer affects us.
I imagine a world that loves and no one is homeless.
I imagine a world where hugs are a daily start to each day.
I imagine a world where the mind is free from the constant fear and anxiety of cancer coming back.
I imagine a world where all my true friends and I lived not only in the same state but same neighborhood.
I imagine a world where loneliness is a thing of the past.
