What Cancer Cannot Do

My aunt is going through a rough time with her radiation therapy and I wanted to do something for her to be supportive. I figured if she doesn't like the message in the frame, she can just pop it out and stick her favorite photo inside instead.

This poem has been floating around the Internet for years. AS far as I know, the author is unknown. I printed the poem on whisper white card stock using the SU Harry Paul font from the Write Me a Memory® Journaling Fonts CD, Volume II. After printing the poem, I stamped the pink ribbon on top with classic ink so that the writing would show through. The mat was embossed with Pretty in Pink craft ink and clear embossing powder. Both the mat and frame are from Target.

Stamps: Hope Is…
Ink: Pretty in Pink craft & classic
Card stock: Whisper White
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Write Me a Memory® Journaling Fonts CD, Volume II

And here is the full poem in case you couldn't read it in the frame:

Cancer is so Limited...

It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot demolish confidence
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit
It cannot lessen the power of the resurrection
