    My Aunt just came out of remission again.

    It's a miracle she stayed in it for nine months, but still it's a blow knowing that the cancer is growing again. She has battled terminal breast cancer for seven years now, and it's amazing that she's still alive. They gave her 18 months back in 2007 and she's still kickin. I...

    I almost lost my father to cancer about 19

    years ago. I am just thrilled he won the battle. Cancer really needs to be eliminated from existence. My heart goes to those who lost loved ones to cancer.

    I've just come from hospital, where my father is fighting a losing battle against the big C. I needed a breather. Isn't cancer a *****? It robs people of their dignity and reduces them to a state of defencelessness, much like an infant or even worse. It's horrible to see him...

    I just recently found out I have cancer.

    The tumour is on my arm. At first I thought it was just some dirt as it was only small, I tried to wipe it off but it wouldn't come off. After a few days it turned a light purple, so I thought it might be a bruise that will go away. Then it started to go dark brown and raised...
