EXCERPT

EXCERPT

A 9-year-old's poem

From "There's Hope In What We Do":

"The Survivor's Life Saver"

When we learn to swim

We hang on to the side of the pool,

Or onto a life ring or another person,

Eventually we swim alone.

Living with someone who has cancer

Is like learning to swim

You hang on to each other

Until you can do it yourself.

I took care of my Aunt

Five years ago,

When she went through breast cancer,

Today we're swimming on our own.

Kaitlyn Dietz Age 9
