If you know someone or meet someone who is either recovering from cancer or battling cancer PLEASE do not tell them sad stories about people you know who died from it. It is not helpful to the person hearing it. That person needs ALL the POSITIVE reinforcement they can get. Believe me...even though I won my battle it is still in the back of my mind. There are still days I have to talk my way down from the ledge. I know why I have to keep that port for 5 years and why I have to be scanned frequently. The last thing I want to hear from "well meaning" people are sad stories. I know I am not alone on this and if I hear one more depressing story about someone else's lost battle I will have to thump that story teller in the head.
