One of my former students had leukemia. His bravery and positive attitude is still an inspiration to me today. I also admire his big brother who underwent a bone marrow extraction in order to give his little brother a chance to beat cancer. It is easy to find the tragedy in this story, the challenge is finding the silver lining.
do we have to put our email adress in?
This is a sad topic for me because my late dog Ralph died of cancer on his leg in the fall of 2006. The cancer slowly spread to his liver and that was when he died. After that we put his ashes under a apple tree (his favorite fruit). We has a little funeral and I hid my tears under my brown spy glasses. See, what my thing is that I think it is important to remember the things that passed away from you even though it is sad to remember them because it is meaningful for the people who are watching down on us in heaven to be thought of.
I'm so sorry for your loss, I know how it feels to lose a pet i've lost at least 10 because I love animals and I always have to many. Again so sorry!!
I never knew about this disease at all. I would have never of thought that it would be so harsh
You're so lucky. I hope you never have to expierience this horrible diesease or be put throught he pain of knowing someone with it.
Cancer has not effected me yet in life but my grandpa smokes so im worried........
I think the whole concept of cancer is heartbreaking that some of the people have to go through all of this... My best friend from camp's little sister died of Leukemia. She had so many pictures of them with each other and I think it brought them together even closer.
i used to know someone with cancer and they were really sweet and nice to me no matter what then i moved away
Cancer has not had much of an effect on my life, personly. I don't know anyone that has it, but I do admire those people that deal with it being part of thier life well. In general, it has had made an impact on my life in many ways. For example, if cancer didn't exsist, I would not be writing this.
what do we have to comment on again? thanks chuck
Oops, saw at the top of the page. Cancer has impacted my life because my uncle got cancer and we can't screw around anymore. also he has been in the hospital getting many different surgeries. He hasn't had that much time either. One good thing is that he is recovering and getting better so we keep him in our prayers.
Cancer has affected my life in away that changed it forever. It took my best friend from me on January 25,2011. He was diagnosed with cancer in December of 2010 when he was 4 years old. He never got the chance to be five. I was told he should be around until April. But he went to sleep and never woke on the 25 of January. He was the only one in the world that I could tell me secrets to and know he would never tell anyone. I always dreamed he would be there for me forever. Even when I grew old. He was my best friend, someone I know would never let anyone or anything harm me. I trusted him with me life. I went through all lthe tears thinking the pain would finally wear off. It never did. I still tell myself it was all a dream and that he's still here. People try to explain that he's not and that I need to face that but I brush them off staying with what I think. After all he was and always be my best friend, not there's. I loved him more than anything on earth. He could never be replaced. Every second of everyday I think about him and my life without him. Everything I'm scared of or need to accomplish I do for him because I know he would want me to. He was and is the best thing I've ever had. His cancer is one of the absolute worst things in my life. He should still be with me by my side. Sleeping at the end of my bed, sending as much time as we could together. My best friend.....gone.
In loving memory of.....
August, 2006 - January, 2011
My best friend.
I am so sorry about your best friend Jordan I know how it feels to loose somene close to you, It is hard to get over you. I thought that your storry was so touching it almost made me cry. Again I am so sorry about your best friend.
Thanks chris I hope you never lose a best friend so you never go through the pain of losing the thing that matters most in life.
P.S. Zero was a 4 year old german shepard
I have heard about the disease before but I never knew what it did but now I know that there is a way to help it.
I think cancer is a very sad thing and is something that will affect millions everywhere i hope people will find a cure soon.
Cancer doesn't directly afect me, but it affects others I know. On my street, there was a small child, 7 years old, that was battling cancer. I did not know this person, but I knew the brother of the child. She tragicly died very young as a affect of cancer. She seemed cheerful even when she had this terrible diesese, and it taught me that even if you think life is unfair to you and there are too many challenges to overcome, there is always somone with worse problems than you.
My family has not had any experience with cancer. And we feel very lucky not to have had to deal with such a terrible disease.
my Grandma had cancer when I was younger. Seeing her in tubes and I.Vs made me shocked andit made me a little afraid. she also had to go through cemotherepy and lose ALL of her hair. I did admire her perserverence to fight and yes, she did enventualy get healthier. I was just lucky she lived. That was how cancer efected my life. How about yours?
I dont know anyone with cancer so i cant really say how it affects me, but i could consider that as a good thing because that means less people with cancer!
When I was in third grade I lost two aunts in the same week -both from cancer. And both of my grandparents on my dad's side died of cancer and I never even met my other grandpa.
Cancer has impacted my life because one of my mom's friends has cancer, and she didn't have much hair and she was at the hospital a lot. It made me put things into perspective, and made me see how good I had it.
Cancer can be a terrible thing to us and the people around the world as well
One of my sisters friends from highschool had lekemia and she was brave, and heroic she would go to school to see her freinds. Sadly she died when she was 10 grade she past away, put her bravery and positive addituide is still with her family and freinds. Even know she knew she was not going to make it she kept on moving on with her life. :(
Cancer has effected my life in many ways. For example my dad had non-hodkins lymphoma. This went on for about a year with many chemo treatments.My dad lost all of his hair and was usually very tired. That is how cancer has effected my life
P.S. my dad is fine now and has not had cancer for 3 years.
Really sorry about your dad! Hope he stays cancer free! :)
Do you have to use your real name?
Well, sarcasm is rude and it's definitely a hair trigger for a comeback. For example, if I say in a regular voice,"Wow you are really smart." When they failed a test, it would be rude and disrespectful to the person who may have trouble in that certain subject.
