I’m not a celebrity
As I pass them on the street no one knows that I have the Big C; I’m not a celebrity.
When I shared that I had breast cancer I did not become the top story on TMZ; I’m not a celebrity.
When I declared my breast was getting chopped off no one praised me like they did Angelina Jolie; I’m not a celebrity.
I was not privy to a private hospital room for recovery, instead tortured by my long-suffering eighty-year old roommate; I’m not a celebrity.
There was no flurry of get well soon tweets when I was in the hospital fighting an infectious disease; I’m not a celebrity.
Hey world, send up prayers and show some love for us too; hashtag most cancer victims and survivors are not celebrities.
