The Things I Wish I Were Told When I Was Diagnosed With Cancer

The Things I Wish I Were Told When I Was Diagnosed With Cancer

“I'm going to be the fly in the ointment here...

I wish people would stop recommending articles like this. You had leukemia for a year. A. Year. That's it? That's all you dealt with?? Gimmie a break. That's a cakewalk. Try dealing with unmanageable, debilitating symptoms for a decade or two, and *then* see how inspiring your articles are.... Bah!”

“Facing death by cancer, regardless of the length of time that you have dealt with something, is not a cakewalk. Not knowing what the author or, others have had to face, and will face, to combat this terror, makes if very difficult to accurately assess how physically and emotionally debilitating each individual case is. It is hard to predict at what point a cancer patient is "cured". Cancer has a history of returning. The author doesn't profess to say that other diseases, disabilities, etc. aren't equally or, more severe. He only states his experience, which I am confident was no cakewalk. Obviously, thousands of other people found his words to be inspiring. Truly, isn't it fantastic that he could help them to deal with their situation? It doesn't have a correlation to the many other challenges that non-cancer patients face. Thank God for those among us that reach out to help rather than tear down. May you find it within yourself to reach out and inspire others with your own words, rather than seek to harm. I am sorry for your situation and will pray that you find peace and health.”

“You can add "laughable" to that list of words... They never showed. The people who showed, instead, were several THOUSAND counter-protesters, who created a human shield, several blocks long around the ENTIRE event! They never got in! And they had to resort to poorly photoshopped images and easily debunked lies to claim they even had a presence! WBC: 0 Colorado: 1. Game, set, and match.”
