Call it what you will cancer of any kind is a terrible disease, I would not wish it in any form on my worst enemy.
I have just found out that one of my oldest and dearest friends is now battling a form of this horrible disease. My former sister-in-law and a friend I have known for some years are also fighting the good fight. I trust that all three will come through relatively unscathed.
I don’t think there would be many of us who have not been touched by cancer is some way, we would all know someone, or know of someone, who has had their body ravaged by this most indiscriminate of diseases, not to mention the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
None of us know what is going on inside our bodies, it makes you wonder whether we would be better not knowing. I suppose we at least then have the option to fight, or at the very least say our goodbyes, but there is little dignity either way.
To the three very brave ladies in my life, keep fighting, we have many wonderful memories that we are yet to make.
