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.

Hey all.

Here's my own cancer update.  I saw oncologist yesterday.  No new news.   Next scan in 6 months.  The side effects of medication are my normal way of being now.  Vision is stable.  Fatigue is unchanged.  Gastrointestinal tract remains in rebellion.

Overall OK.  Very appreciative that we have this forum for discussion.  It's made more difference than I can express.  Thank you. all.

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 Wachenheim 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.
