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.

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!

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.

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.

Kent, I am very sorry to learn of your mother's cancers and difficulties. Cancer is a family disease, as she suffered, those who love her suffered as well. 

It is people such as yourself that the prevention and treatment of cancer research and progress needs. There is so much to do, so many people in physical and emotional pain. Clearly you feel deeply about the ravages of cancer and can give voice to the public who want to help and don't know how. 

When ever I read or hear, "I'll pray for you!" I always respond with encouragement to get regular check ups, to join a cancer awareness group, or raise money for cancer research, or volunteer at a local cancer treatment center, or provide rides for cancer patients to and from their many, many doctors' visits. 

Praying may make the person feel better, but the issue isn't about them, it is about the patient and the cancer.

Chris, I am not sure what you meant by "In the meantime I make a mess of this group, I should keep subjects neatly apart. Sorry, Daniel!"

If you mean you feel should not share your experiences, I heartily disagree, Freedom comes through finding a safe place to express yourself, in a non-judgmental, non-critical place, and by doing so you are empowered to clear the old story and create a new and wonderful story that rings with your true nature. Your kind nature is there always, from your very beginning, but things happen to put in scars, painful memories, and defense mechanisms that keep you from flourishing.

We bear witness to the flowering of Christ Breman!
