Cancer

If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

Joan, I for one hope you'll be at the party for quite some time!

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 26, 2015 at 4:17pm

Thank you, each and everyone. Yes, I had full confidence it would be "benign". 
The cancer came at a good time in my life because, at my age, the only mountain to cross is death. I don't fear it; I just realize that the party will continue without me. 
In the meantime, I get to read all I want to, write as I want to without fear of hurting feelings. However, I am more interested in telling my truth to whoever will listen and create my little food forest.

Glad to hear your good news Joan.  Even though you probably expected that news, I'll bet it felt very good to hear.

Keep it up Joan---i.e. bringing forth the good news that we all want from you.

Wonderful news, Joan! Enjoy the season.

Michael, How are you and your "big belly" doing? Any changes? I hope you are feeling well.

Participant Observer Report:

"We are pleased to inform you that the result of the exam appears to be normal/benign."

Now, back to creating the food forest in my back yard.

I'm not sure what is going on with me and my big belly. I think it's a gastro problem but my doctor had other ideas, none of which made any sense. Recently I got ahold of some red rice yeast and flax seed oil. Taking about 2 each of these a day, something is going on. I feel it in my body and feel it in my stomach. From what I read I'm going to stop taking my lavastin altogether and might be able to stop other drugs as well.
