You may have noticed my absence last week.
My uncle died of cancer on August 8th and I was home for his funeral.
Here’s a running tally of cancer amongst my family and friends:
My maternal grandmother has colon cancer. It metastasized and spread to her liver.
My maternal uncle just passed from bone cancer.
My paternal aunt is a breast cancer survivor.
My paternal first cousin died of leukemia.
My first cousin’s wife is in remission for breast cancer.
Her mother died of cancer.
My friend is a thyroid cancer survivor.
That’s a lot of cancer.
Cancer is sucking so hard right now. Stupid.
If cancer has affected someone in your life, or if you’re lucky to NOT know anyone battling this disease, there’s a great organization that tells it like it is: visit www.letsfcancer.com and get educated. Ninety percent of cancers are curable if found at Stage One!
