The Changing Cancer Conversation: Thank You Denise and Ceil

Joyce Shulman

When I was a kid, cancer was the Voldemort of diseases -- the disease that must not be named. A cancer diagnosis was something to be whispered. A secret to be hidden as long as possible. This secrecy added to the fear and, I assume, to the isolation of treatment. But times are a-changin.

While it is difficult sometimes to be motivated to advocate for yourself or someone else when you are in the middle of a cancer crisis, it is definitely something that you should consider. It may very well be that your doctor is perfectly positioned to provide you with the best of care available for your particular situation and if you feel that this is the case, then by all means feel free to proceed.

During a time of seemingly unprecedented divisions in our nation, the Moonshot has united us in a cause far larger than any one of us. If it ends as fast as it began, we will have far more to mourn than another shuttered government program.

I feel sad about everything you are going through. It seems like you vacillate between an objective understanding of this situation and denial. To me, it's fairly evident that your wife is no longer interested in sex or physical affection.
