Black Cord

A short little story about a young girl diagnosed with end stage melanoma, her fight to hold on to her hope, and to find her courage to let go and accept her fate.


1. one. where it all may end today.

I've always been brave.

I've only gotten that bad feeling, the one where your stomach feels like its about to eat itself, a few times. This has been one of those times. I'm brave because if I'm not, then there's no point in even trying to fight this war. I mean, I'm hopeless, I'm on my own. My mother has given up because she's pissed at the odds. Screw the odds. Medical miracles happen all the time.

What am I saying? God, pull it together..

I know that medical miracles don't happen in people like me.

Do you ever get the feeling like you're going to die today?

I do.


I'm terminal.
