From A Piece of Leukemia Sufferers's Deepest Heart

So, This is it.
I know I'm going to die now. I suppose I've always known that. I just never knew when.
And I'm okay with it. Really. I don't mind my disease killing me. But it's killing my family too. While everyone was so worried about my blood counts, they barely even noticed that Jesse was dyslexic.
I'm sorry, Jesse.
I'm sorry I took all the attention when you were the one who needed it the most.
I know I took your first love from you. I only hope that one day, you get her back.
You gave up everything for me. Your work, your marriage, your entire life just to fight my battles for me every single day. I'm sorry you couldn't win.
And to my baby sis,
who was always so very little. I'm sorry I let them hurt you. I'm sorry I didn't take care of you. It was supposed to be the other way around.

-Kate Fitzgerald.
