    Even Cancer Makes Me Laugh! How I Found Out I Had The Big "C".

    Cancer isn't funny; but even with cancer I can't help but try to be funny, myself. On July 4th 2012, I came home at about 2:30 in the afternoon. I wanted to take a little rest, then shower and go see fireworks with my nieces. As I pulled into my parking lot in the back of my...

    Absolutely Hate It

    It has stolen the light from him. Someone who was once the life of the party. Nothing got him down. Now he hides from his family ashamed and angry at what this disease has done to him. And who could blame him. I can't imagine everything hes going threw and feeling. Today he had...

    Cancer Can Be Funny. "Strawberry Daiquiris"!

    After they discovered I had a tumor over my heart, I heard “Code White” over the emergency room’s intercom. I asked the nurse what “Code White” meant, she said their calling in an emergency surgical team in for you.” I had already been told by the Dr. that my chest...

    Long before, I used to give random parties to people I hardly know. So there was one of those guys, about whom, all I can remember is to be a nice person with a warm smile. Though we both wanted to be friends and exchanged numbers, neither called. It has been 4 years since. But...

    that I was dying of cancer. It was pretty scary. It took me a couple of days to stop being worried about it. When I was in middle school, a girl had Leukemia. I don't want to put her name out here. When we saw her she had already lost her hair and was going through treatment. I...

    I hate cancer, I have seen what cancer has done

    to, too many of my close friends, and its horrible. Cancer is a slow killing disease, or a fast killing disease, I just wish we could find a cure for cancer.

    Got another treatment of chemo today.

    I thought it was one of my better sessions however it has me confused about the simplest things. I just cried because I didn't understand why all sides of a plastic lid didn't have a triangle tab. I felt bad for the unfairness in it. Seriously?

    Saying Goodbye To Dad...

    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...

    It just that we all have cancer cells in the

    body, so few that can't be detected by machines and tests. The way we live can give these few cancer cells to trigger, to grow and to spread in our body.
