Cancer: A malignant and invasive growth or tumor caused by abnormal cell masses, tending to recur after excision and to metastasize to other sites

That's the definition of cancer. 1.2 million Americans are diagnosed with it every year. Annually, 500,000 people in the United States... they die from it. And 13% of people that die every year die from cancer. Cancer has a track record that goes on longer than possibly imaginable, but it's still here today and there's still no definite cure for it. So when a loved one falls into its clutches, not much good comes out of it. It ruins lives. It puts out love like rain puts out a fire. And it doesn't stop to realize the damage its doing. 

Those are the things that I'd gathered about the disease that took his life. Those are also the things I hated to think about. They just made me feel emptier inside than I already was. 
I knew I'd probably never get over him. I knew that I wasn't allowed to anyways. I made a promise. 

.....But could I keep it?

@Bixie101 I'll read it at some point :-) (just let me get brave first, I'm a crybaby and won't even remember the story if I read it super fast to keep the tear-y shizz to a minimum) ... And thanks for replying :D

I'm going to comment even though I can't read this, I'm not even going to try, I know I'll cry the entire time and I'll sit around gloomy for weeks, so I'm just going to say, your cover and title are completely beautiful, and if I wasn't a wuss, I'd read this.
