The Choices

By Dawn Oswald

I choose to live

I choose to fight this battle

I choose to survive

I am the survivor

I continue to survive

I am surviving this terminal illness, this death sentence

I choose to wake up

I choose to smell the roses and watch the birds fly

I am the survivor, the warrior

I am the wonder women

I choose to have faith, hope, and to love

It is a battle, but a battle I will win

I choose to continue to fight

I stare you death in the eyes

I choose to live, to be free

I choose to take my medicine to stay alive

I choose to drink my cocktail of poison

I drink the wine, beer and even take a shot or 2

I choose to have fun, laugh and to smile

I choose to ask for help, to speak up for myself

I choose you: my family and friends

I dear you to choose life over death and fight for you

For you to love, to live, to laugh

I choose to cry, scream, and be depressed

I dear you to find what makes you happy again

I choose to survival

You can choose whatever you want

I choose life to the end

You are too a survivor, choose to survive

I choose me

I choose you

I choose forgiveness

I choose this life

I choose to be a survivor

For life and everything around me is my choice

Surviving Breast Cancer provides breast cancer support, events, and webinars at no cost to you! Whether you are looking to gain more knowledge on a particular topic or meet up with other breast cancer survivors, we have something for everyone. 


Our standing appointment on Thursdays is for all stages. We also host specific breakout groups once a month for specific stages and subtypes such as Metastatic breast cancer, and Inflammatory Breast Cancer, etc. 


The Book Club meets the first Sunday of every month at 11 am ET. You are welcome to join each month or pick and choose your month based on your availability and the book we are reading. 


Through art, writing, and other creative modalities, we hold the power to manage our stress, make sense of our now, and relax into moments of stillness. 


Free, monthly, online classes in restorative yoga, yoga for breast cancer, and Zumba.
