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.

Spud, good news to learn you had the Squamous Cell Carcinoma and those 35 itchy spots and dark growths removed. Have you ever been tempted to grow a beard?

Watching all the permaculture videos, many of the men grow beards. I am becoming quite accustomed to them now.

Thanks CLAWS.

We are always rooting for you.

Hope everything stays ''looking good'' Spud!

My new dermatologist removed a Squamous Cell Carcinoma from my ear yesterday, and everything is looking good.

A couple of weeks ago, he removed about 35 itchy spots and dark growths.  That's going to make shaving and hat wearing a lot less irritating.

That's a great idea!

Trees are a beautiful sign of life.  I am picturing you being there to see them bear fruit.  Peace to you too, Daniel.
