It seems like I keep hearing about cancer almost every single day. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if researchers finally found a cure for all cancers?
A long time neighbor of ours just died of cancer last week. He’d been sick for some time, but I was still sad to hear that he’d passed away.
I also keep hearing about stars and even political figures who have cancer. The star of one of my favorite shows “Dexter” is fighting cancer right now, and I just got an email from our local Member of Parliament, Jack Layton, stating that he’s got prostate cancer. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that someone I know if fighting the rare cancer mesothelioma although I certainly hope that I don’t hear anymore news of cancer striking friends or family.
Do you find that you’re hearing about more friends, family or even your favorite television or movie stars having cancer?
