To show I understand what you're going through
When I was young so long ago, Threatened I was though I didn't know, My parents feared as to my fate Afraid that the doctors would be too late. And the doctors did all that they could For the fear of my parents they understood, They opened my skull and saw the mass Knowing that they had to work fast. Many at the time thought those efforts to be in vain, As my life this tumor continued to drain, But those doctor's efforts weren't destined to be lost- For God had not let my death be the cost. To show I understand what it is you're going through I have here to carol for you For Christmas is the time for giving:as God's done And I do hope this will bring peace to everyone.
Author's Notes:
This is not made up. This poem relates what I went through as a child. Long story short, I'd been diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a grapefruit. I was just a baby at the time. 17 yrs later, I returned to the hospital where I lived during that ordeal. I came back with my church choir. All in an effort to Carol to those who may not have been as lucky as me. I wanted show them that anything could happen. That things could get better, one way or another. That I was proof of that.

It is quite  astounding what you went through as a child with a brain tumor.  Trials in life do give us empathy for others as you explain quite well. Its wonderful that you are reaching out to others with compassion. Your poem makes us think.  Thanks for sharing.
