    This morning July 15th 2013 at 08:15 AM my father passed away after three years of battling cancer. After his spirit had left his withered husk, he was left with a smile on his face, which gave us all a measure of relief. The medical staff wondered how he had managed to hold on...

    A promising drug for fighting cancer is found. It has already been proven relatively safe. Laboratory and animal tests have shown it kills cancer cells and shrinks tumors. You would think the drug companies would fall all over themselves to do the clinical trials necessary for...

    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...

    Going for my second radiation treatment today.

    I can see this getting tiring. 3 times a week for 9 weeks. I really wish I had someone to go with me. It's only about a 45 minute drive, but it seems so long by myself. I hate feeling lonely and unloved. And soon I'm sure I'll be looking like a freak.

    I Am Of Good Courage. I Will Not Falter.

    Words cannot describe the shock you feel when first receiving your diagnosis. For me, it was mind-numbing. I literally could not think. For the first few days I went through a series of emotions, ranging from shock to fear, to pure red hot rage. I would wake up at night with this...

    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...
