“I don't see this as a battle," Italian soccer legend Gianluca Vialli wrote, about his cancer.
“I am not a warrior. I am not fighting cancer: it's too strong an enemy and I would not stand a chance.
“I am a man who is on a journey and cancer has joined me on that journey... my goal is to keep walking, keep moving until he's had enough and leaves me alone."
Sending love today to everyone who has a companion on their journey.
