#WorldCancerDay On November 11th my family and I heard the word no one ever wants to hear. I always had great compassion when I heard that someone was suffering with Cancer, but you truly don’t know the feeling until it hits you or your family. Being with my brother @eddiealderson every step through his journey has been and continues to be the biggest honor. I have learned sooo much. It has been the most terrifying, yet insanely inspiring experience we’ve ever faced. My prayers, love, sympathy, amazement, and awe goes out to anyone that has or has ever had cancer or has a loved one with cancer. We are all in this together🙏💙
