Woman with Cancer Shamed by Strangers…you have no idea what’s going on in people’s lives

“Just a gentle reminder that you have no idea what is going on in other people’s lives. This is my car and I am legally allowed to park in handicap spaces due to cancer treatment and exhaustion.

Just because you can’t physically observe something does not mean that a person is not feeling it. I had a grade 2 ependymoma on my brain stem. It was removed July 28th and I started radiation 5 weeks ago today.

I have about a week and a half left of treatment and my last scan came back good. I’m left with a little speech impediment but it’s improving.

Just because I look fine in the two minutes I walk from my car to the building does not mean I’m not battling cancer and undergoing radiation treatment.

I am not asking for sympathy, but just awareness that everyone is fighting their own battles, whether you know it or not.

Be kind to people. Make people cry tears of joy, and not frustration or sadness. Love one another.

I will choose to love this person and pray for them. I hope that the darkness in their heart is replaced with unconditional love and happiness.”
