Slow Burn, by Libby

control-burning-53614_1920Today in order to put the chemo poison in perspective, I’m thinking about the analogy between a  “controlled burn process” in the forest and the poison of chemo making way for new growth of donor cells! When the farmers set the forest on fire it is in order to burn off all of the weeds and brush and smaller trees so that the good trees can grow bigger and taller. The residue from the fire puts nitrogen and other nutrients into the soil to help the good trees grow bigger. … just like the donor’s cells growing to make me healthy!
