One thing I think that they were trying to convey is to show that cancer survivors need support. But what I really liked about that commercial was what they said at the end about survivors. Too often we think of survivors as those who have fought and won. Chevy clearly spelled it out when they said they were "...celebrating survivors and those who support them in their road to recovery." That encompasses everyone, from the person who is just starting a battle, to one who has finished, and even to the one who might have a battle that will last for more years than anyone thought was possible.
It's still hard for me to think about the fact that I am one of those fighting survivors and that my family has to face my cancer every day. God has been gracious and given us more strength to deal with this than any of us would have ever dreamed possible. But sometimes it's easy to feel like you are all alone in your fight. Your friends and your family are there, but they just can't understand what you are going through. And the survivors are there for there family, but even they don't know what their family is going through. That feeling of being alone can become so overwhelming that at times you wonder if anyone really remembers anymore. In your head you know it's not true, but the emotions take over and cry out in longing for some tangible comfort and support.
If we had to rely on our fellow man only for comfort, we could never be satisfied. But because we have an omnipresent, or all present God, we have comfort surrounding us at all times. He has promised to be with us always, to the very end of the age.
He has promised that He has a plan for us.
