"Even in the word hopelessness there is hope."

1) What appealed to you about the FUCK CANCER project and why are you putting your energy into it?

I was introduced to FUCK CANCER when I was training them on social media. I was struck by how a bunch of young, often not POWERFUL (!), people wanted to help further. Supporting each other is sometimes the alpha and omega of finding the direction that will help a person find their way out of the maze.

2) What does the term FUCK CANCER mean or express to you?

Rising above the cards I am dealt and believing that even with Black Peter I can win anything. Rain or shine.

3) Can you imagine who you are fighting for here as a "SOLDIER"?

I can't. Because I don't think this disempowerment is something I want to fight. I know I created it myself, and so it's like fighting myself. And it was that constant internal struggle that led me to the disempowerment in the first place. So that's why I imagine I'm a peace messenger. I seek peace, understanding, love, acceptance for myself, but also for my non-POWER. And anyone else who wants it, whether healthy or not. I believe that a person who is filled with love and joy cannot be powerless. :)

4) What would you say to someone who says they find the phrase "FUCK CANCER" vulgar?

It all depends on your point of view. I find body stockings really vulgar. But seriously... It's not about words, it's about actions and the mission that Fuck Cancer represents. PS: Those who haven't been through it may not always know that sometimes words run out... And all that's left is this... Thank God for them!
