    And I loved her very much.

    Nono, she is safe and sound and maybe I still love her. I supported her from the very first day when she started to google her symptoms and share her thoughts with me. Though it was very intimate, she trusted me. I was so worried for her but she is really such a strong woman...

    I Knew He Could Have It, And I Fell In Love With Him Anyway

    I met a man who makes my heart feel complete. He's funny and handsome and kind. He was told today that he has lung cancer. He's never smoked a day in his life, I'm the smoker... it couldn't be less fair. I don't smoke around him, he's hardly ever around smoke. He's 25 years...

    I was informed today

    Cancer is defined as the uncontrolled growth of

    abnormal cells in the body, which are also called malignant cells. "What's hurting my mom?", I remember asking my dad. "Cancer", he replied. "Cancer has taken an interest in her and won't leave her be." Ever since then, I've always thought of it as a person. A person who wants...
