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.

There's also a website "autocowrecks"; I believe it's part of Cheezburger.

I like "damn you autocorrect!"

Never mind, Joan, it's a common mistake with a stupid name like mine.

"damn you autocorrect" is funny! Oh yes, that is what it was. Thanks Daniel!

Comment by Daniel W on February 7, 2014 at 2:03pm
Was that an autocorrect? There is a site, "damn you autocorrect" that makes me laugh. Some amazing bloopers.

Mindy you share some great news. Thank you.

Chris! I am so sorry! I did not mean to do that. Please forgive me!

We bear witness to the flowering of Christ

Thanks Joan, but I prefer x-t  And I apologised for being off topic, all the while feeling that I'm free to share and express myself. Wonderful! To me it's a sort of homecoming, with good people who would never belittle me or laugh at other people.

I am in this group not because I've got cancer (as far as I know), but because I meet people who've got cancer.

Mindy, very good news about your b.i.l. and I know he is much comforted by the news. Now, the next task is to increase awareness of the importance of regular exams and to do whatever feels right to participate in cancer research and treatment.
