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 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.

Thanks Patricia. Hmmm, I was 73 when the doc told me I had prostate cancer at the locally advanced level. I sought best advice but was told no operation was merited because of metastasis, i.e. microscopic-size centres of potential future tumours are dotted around everywhere, especially in the bones. In other words, my diagnosis came too late.

That's good news for him Patricia (viz. early diagnosis and forthcoming operation). How old is he, approximately? Is he American?

Patricia, I am very sorry to learn of your husband's friends diagnosis of cancer. We are becoming experienced at walking the walk with people with cancer. Let him know there is great progress and many of us survive and, more importantly, thrive.

Chris, thank you for b.d. greetings. Looking forward to the coming year.

Patricia, I am impressed! That is a beautiful pair of candles!

Grinning Cat, that is a beautiful card with a special sentiment. I am so glad you called it to my attention because I missed it when I was on this page before. I can, with pride, dignity, a sense of authority, state I am 78 years old! Notice how nicely the sounds slip between the teeth, over the tongue and through the lips! 

I feel special, reading your words.

Joan, many hugs and colorful greetings on this, one of your unbirthdays. I hope you have a wonderful year!

Happy birthday, Joan! Many happy returns!

Daniel, thank you so much for the colorful greetings. The very best thing about this week is your healthy report from your tests. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 21, 2014 at 9:45pm

Spud! That is so special! What an imagination some people have and I thank you for sharing this with me, and the b.d. cake. I burst into laughter when I saw the cake. 

You are special.
