"The treatment enveils you in a blanket of hope, fear and quiet desperation, but you continue to put one foot in front of the other and move forward. There are no guarantees, but standing still is the greatest fear of all. Even if you are fortunate enough to reach the survivor stage of the treatment and recovery, the very thought of it all stays in the back of your mind. That is why you feel so deeply for anyone who is still going through this ordeal, anyone who has been there, and for the families of those who did not make it through to the other side. Yet we are still a 'fraternity of hope', a 'reservoir of strength,' and true believers in a brighter tomorrow!" ~P. Morning Bear DéMarks (2012 quote from Lymphoma Survivor)
