"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Fuck Cancer

First(years ago) we lost our friend Don, then Mary (she's healthy now) fought breast cancer, then my FIL beat cancer but died due to complications from the surgery, then Velda got her terminal diagnosis, then JJ found questionable moles...

Another person I know found a spot that might be cancer...and it was.

This spot was on her face near her temple.

This spot appeared about the same time she started getting wicked headaches.

They are worried the cause is the same.

She has to undergo a lot of tests and is scared.

FUCK CANCER...I'm tired of it hurting people I love.

I sooo hear you. My mom is a 5 time cancer survivor... three rounds of which we are sure were connected to some skin cancer she had by her hairline above her temple. I'm sure your friend's doctors will be very thorough, but I can't stress enough how important it is for the docs to treat (not just remove) the cancer. Even if they are sure they got it all.

Cancer is a bitch, no two ways around it. Sending prayers for your friend.

Right there with you, sistah! I am so sick of this f'g disease. The only thing I really know what to do right now, is to fundraise. It keeps my mind busy. Not 100% that it is making a difference in the long run or in my own mental state, but it's all I can do!

So, as you said - FUCK CANCER!

I hope Cancer dies and would stay the F away from everyone. My Mom is a breast cancer survivor thank God, but Super S's brother is now suffering pretty bad. Thanks for bringing the bitch up today, we need to think about it more often.
