Kid ‘nap’ (dictionary definition): to snatch; to seize and to hold (a person) by force or fraud, as for ransom…..That does kind of fit for cancer. I heard this phrase in a writing class for cancer survivors. It really hit for me. A classmate stated that everyone uses the term “journey”, but a journey is something you choose or plan to go on. No one ever chooses or plans to have cancer, so kidnap works for me.
I decided to write this blog to share my experiences good, bad, funny (after the fact) and not. So let me begin by telling you a little bit more about myself.
