I am so glad and relieved. My cousin, who was diagnosed with breast cancer May of last year has just had her monthly physicals. Her cancer is in remission. We are so thankful to the Lord for that piece of good news. My cousin went through a series of treatment like chemotherapy and radiation. She even lost all of her hair due to the treatment. What was so endearing and awe-inspiring about my cousin was her seemingly sunshine-y attitude about her sickness. She was, of course, sad about her illness but she never complained about it nor expressed anger about her difficult situation. I so admire her. I pray that her remission is a permanent gift from God.

According to the American Cancer Society, 7.6 million people worldwide died of cancer in 2007. It is the cause of 13% of all deaths. It is still a dreaded disease but treatment for different types of cancer has come a long way. There is a site that deals with educating people regarding cancer. The site is www.knowcancer.com. It is a cancer social network where you can be a member for free. The site has forums where members could ask experts on various concerns about cancer. You can touch base with people with the same concerns too. There is also an online library where one can read on about various types of cancer, tumors, treatments, and more. A national directory of oncologists, wellness centers, cancer camps and more are also available. The site is worth checking.

  2. That's great news! Katakot talaga ang cancer kasi it can strike anyone....everytime I feel something odd, see something unusual in my body I always [as in ALWAYS] think it's cancer. Praning ako noh?
