It has come home to me once again recently how indiscriminate Cancer is. It affects family, friends and colleagues. It has affected my family, friends and colleagues!
A friend and ex-colleague of mine has recently been undergoing treatment for breast cancer. She has been chronicling her experiences in her blog. On the left side of her blog she has included a number of useful cancer websites. In a recent posting she included this Youtube clip of a short film by Nikki Mackey and Connie Finn, that was as a result of Nikki’s diagnosis.
It is not just a female issue, Men are also affect by Cancer. Over ten years ago a work colleague was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Do my male readers know how to examine themselves? Have a look at this clip with Rachel Stevens.
Via a friend, I have recently come across this blog of a young man currently opening his life whilst undergoing treatment. He started his blog only a few weeks ago with his first thought on how cancer was affecting him
If you think cancer will never affect you, think again. Read the two blogs I have linked to, watch the YouTube clips. I have only touched on two forms of Cancer, however I have friends who have had brain tumours, pancreatic cancer and the sister of a school friend had leukemia
If you are one of the lucky ones who will never get Cancer, you will still be affected when family, friends and colleagues are diagnosed with Cancer.
