CANCER IS DEFEATED

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
