Breast Cancer Christmas Carols

I would usually insert an 80’s CANCER JAM OF THE DAY here, but I have a special treat in store for you. Nothing captures the spirit of the holidays more than “The Twelve Months of Treatment”.  Who wants a partridge in a pear tree anyway?

In the twelve months of treatment, breast cancer gave to me:

Twelve dates with Taxol,

Eleven flashes flashing,

Ten years of payments,

Nine nurses poking,

Eight pain meds I’m milking,

Seven different doctors,

Six weeks of burning,

Five years of Ta-mox-i-fen!

Four kinds of scans,

Three sur-ger-ies,

Two missing boobs,

And sep-sis from the port they put in me.

Can’t you just hear Bing Crosby in the background while you’re roasting those chestnuts? And no, I don’t really have 8 pain meds!

  1. Love it! My 2013 almost fits this song, except my big infection is around an expander post mastectomy, requiring more surgery last Monday and a current hospital stay to be pumped full of antibiotics. Roll on 2014!

  2. LMAO!!!!!!! I have tears I’m laughing so hard!!!! I’m so going along in my head with you! This is truly great ( sadly true). How about, ” all I want for christmas are two perky boobs”, instead of front teeth???
