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 for all of the supportive words and thoughts.

This scan result was good. No new tumors. Nothing else to speak of. Next scan in 6 more months. Continue medication.

All things consedered, reassuring ang gives me more time to do with life, what is important to me.

Thanks again for the support. Means more than you know!

Waiting with you for the news, Daniel!

I'm thinking about you, looking forward to your report. Like learning you are in your garden. Enjoy each and every moment ... don't read any of my screeds on politics, economics and religion. You don't need to think about those current events. I will stay positive on other sites.

Thoughts are always with you Daniel.
