Cancer Clubbed

Has cancer touched your life? Last month at a fundraiser for a friend whose 8 year old son was just diagnosed with some horribly rare cancer the woman hosting the get together said something so true. We always say "cancer touched"--I opened this post with that---has anyone you love been touched by cancer? But what more appropriate is---Has anyone in you life had their life hacked up, spit out, stepped on and clubbed by cancer? It's a devastation that compares to nothing else. With all of different cancers out there these days, Breast, Prostate, Colon, Mesothelioma, Pancreatic, Brain, Blood--you name it--there is a cancer for everything. And it's just humbling when you think of the numbers. Is there really any way to combat such a villain?
