Ant's Poem

CANCER
Cancer is evil
Aunty fighting for her life
Chemotherapy
Feelings crushed as hair falls out
Two months off to live her life



This poem was written by my 12 year old Grandson
It was an entry in a school competition run by a
neighbouring school
Over 400 poems were entered from about 6 schools
around the district and Anthonys poem was the winning entry

He got a $50.00 prize

I have been trying to put up some photos for the last hour Things are different on my computer since it came back from repairs
I shall keep trying

What a sweet way to honor your daughter's battle. A deserving win, I'd say.
