The Big ‘C’

The dreaded news would knock any of us off our feet
You knew it was a possibility, but you didn’t really believe it

The diagnosis of cancer instantly makes you feel unwell
And you are forgiven for thinking that you reside in a living hell

The initial diagnosis takes the wind out of your sails
You’re unsure how to react, unsure if you want details

You learn to cope with the news you didn’t want to hear
No simple pill for cancer, but time is a great healer

Indeed, ‘c’ is for cancer, but that’s not the big ‘C’
For that’s just what some people made up, and I disagree

The big ‘C’ is not for cancer, the big ‘C’ stands for Champions
For the courage you show repeatedly, as you run your daily errands

The big ‘C’ is for the researchers and doctors who work tirelessly
The big ‘C’ is for the nurses providing great care with empathy

The big ‘C’ is for the charities that keep raising money
The big ‘C’ is for the generous people who donate willingly

The big ‘C’ is for the families of people with cancer
The big ‘C’ is for the sufferers; past, present and, yes, future

So to the doctors and researchers, keep on working
To the fantastic nurses, keep on caring

To the trusted charities, keep on fundraising
To the people who are donating, keep on giving

To the families of people with cancer, keep on supporting
And to the people with cancer, keep on fighting

You are the Champions, all of you are the Champions
The big ‘C’ is for you, the big ‘C’ is for Champions
