The Ugliness Of Cancer~   Leave a comment

My friend Laurie has gone through sixteen weeks of chemotherapy.

Now this next week she is going to have surgery to have what is left of the cancer in her breast removed and possibly some lymph nodes as well.

I feel badly for her but she has been such a trooper and I applaud her for being as strong as she has been

And working despite being ill.

I do hope they can get all of the cancer and she can be cancer free soon.

I learned yesterday that I guy I know that lives in our little town has pancreatic cancer.
He is 55.

I don’t know him well, but he is a firefighter in our town (they volunteer) and his sons played baseball with my sons when they were little.

I feel badly for him because they can not cure pancreatic cancer.

(Not that I am aware of)

My sister Cyndi died from liver cancer.

And it was completely through out her body before she died over two years ago.

It was horrific watching her die.

My mother died from cancer 26 years ago.

And it was horrible watching her die as well.

Cancer is so ugly, so devastating……

So horrible…..

I ache for anyone who has to go through it, or like this man here in my town.

It is pretty  much a death sentence.

So sad.
