So a coworker friend of mine is battling breast cancer.
She has decided she is going to do chemotherapy for sixteen weeks and then have whatever is left of the cancer taken out.
I worked four hours for her last night so she could go talk to her oncologist about what she is going to do.
She told me she will do the chemotherapy.
I came home and talked to my husband about it and he asked me “What would you do, if that was you?”
I said “Honestly I don’t think I would do anything.”
And my reason for this is…….I work with another woman who had breast cancer thirty years ago.
She had the entire breast removed after doing the chemotherapy.
She told me if she ever had cancer again she would not do the chemotherapy because in her words, you are filling your entire body with this poison.
Yes it may kill the cancer but you are still filling your body with an evil poison.
And she said she wouldn’t do it again.
I suggested to Laurie the friend with breast cancer that she talk to Jackie, the nurse who had breast cancer thirty years ago.
I don’t know if she did or not because I left work and she was there till ten.
I hope she did but maybe she doesn’t want anyone’s influence and just wants to deal with it herself.
I can’t honestly say what I would do.
I really don’t know.
I feel like I have lived a good life and I am ready to go to Heaven whenever the Good Lord wants me there.
However ….since I am getting a new grand daughter here in a few days I would like to see her grow to adulthood.
So I honestly can not say what I would do.
I doubt very much if I would do chemotherapy.
I have been told that there are oils from marijuana that are good for fighting cancer.
Not sure if that is true or not but I would go that route, or do radiation.
But again if I was faced with this like my friend Laurie is…..I honestly don’t know what I would do…..
