The Yellow Shirts.........
The Yellow Shirt has a number of meanings - for the Survivors, the joy of cancer survivor-ship, being alive and celebrating the survivor-ship of others who have defeated the disease; for current patients, the hope of successful treatment and to wear a yellow shirt the following year; for the families and friends, the gratitude owed to them for the perhaps more difficult burden they bear, because unlike the patient, they are not afforded the right to have a lousy day. The fourth meaning, for those we have lost to the disease - they are not there to don the yellow shirts, we can only walk in memory, remember, honour and celebrate their lives past.
The spirit of Love and Hope feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above it's strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility; for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible.
