Just the mention of the word cancer brings feelings of dread, hopelessness and pain to anyone. Imagine you are five years old and you hear the word relating to you, not once but three times. It such a situation one would understand if even the strongest sufferer gave up completely, let alone a child.
However, Chloe Harrison never did give up hope; she never gave up fighting. Struck first with stomach cancer, a successful operation removed this. Chloe thought that it was all over, but it was not. A short time later it was found that she had cancer in her lungs. Another round of operations got rid of those, apparently successfully. Not the case. Chloe was soon to be told that the cancer had returned to both her stomach and lungs. More operations were undertaken. Now, finally, Chloe has been given the all clear.
Yes there were tear through this terrible time; yes there was despair, loneliness and sadness. But Chloe never gave up. She fought the big C all the way. Her determination, suffering and fighting spirit has brought her through this terrible time. Just by looking into the eyes of this beautiful child one can see the scars of the journey, but also the spirit and determination that has brought her back to full health.
The spirit of this special child contains a lesson for us all. Never to give up hope; to believe in the power of oneself and to be thankful for what we have and are. Children are our future and what a special example Chloe is of that.
I think we should all take time out from the pressure of everyday life to send a message of love to Chloe on the comments section below this story. We send to Chloe and her family our very best wishes and admiration. Chloe, may you live a long and happy life. You deserve it.
