The Cancer Post

March 28, 2017

Not so bad, this one.

Just saw this article, er comic, on Vox – “I had cancer. This comic shows how much pressure I felt to be a hero.” It’s about pervasive cancer culture and how it makes it even tougher to fit in and to fight the disease. Even that word “fight” becomes laden with misconceptions. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I do like the use of the word “survivor.”

This week, too, NPR tells us, “Cancer Is Partly Caused By Bad Luck, Study Finds.” I can’t help but be drawn to these headlines even though I’m not sure exactly what to do with them.

All in a week’s work of surviving.
