Fight with a fury
The passion of the pro-democracy fighters in Egypt is amazing. I leave my TV on CNN when I go to bed and periodically wake up to check in and see what is happening. We truly are blessed in the US.
As cancer patients and survivors, it feels like we need the same amount of "fight" to maintain a strong hold on the track to survival. We should be rallying in the streets just the same for equal health care for all. We should be rallying in the streets demanding a real cure for cancer, not just more tests on treatments!
I read somewhere that today is World Cancer Day.
I'm tired of the marketing campaigns and am ready for the money to be spent on the nitty gritty, the truth. Why do our bodies spin out of control? Is it the toxic water? Is it the toxic air? Is it the toxic food?
Deep inside I think somebody has the answer, but isn't really able to share.
We need to get our "fight on" and win this battle and win the war on cancer. I wish I had the "how" for you, but I don't. I'm just feeling frustrated today. As I watch the plight of the people in Egypt, and pray for their safety and that they are able to gain true freedom, it makes me want to "do" something.
So I write.
Please say a prayer for mom, her cousin and my brother-in-law's uncle. My mom needs a kidney, and the other two are facing the war with cancer.
