Inspirational cancer quotes, can there be such a thing? It turns out that there can. Cancer is a dirty word but it is just that - a word, and not a sentence. Almost everyone who's reading this may have been affected by it at some point in their life. But cancer also elicits qualities in people that they never knew existed. People who thought they were weak suddenly find out they're blessed with a strength they never knew they had. People who thought they were not loved come to realise just how many lives they've impacted - in a truly meaningful way. The small and timid suddenly grow, and the weak become braver than they ever thought possible.
