In spite of the numerous tumors that I have in my brain, I am truly blessed that they are benign, not malignant. Nevertheless, a tumor is a tumor — it can still be harmful. My Neurofibromatosis (NF2) disease is not a form of cancer, although many people mistakenly take it as one of The Big C. I am never offended by it. I explain to them patiently what NF2 really is.
-that was taken from my column:
The other 'Big C' to fight the 'Big C'
I have met a lot of people who are/were suffering from cancer. Some amazingly survived it, others are still battling with it and sadly there were those who lost the battle and passed :( but at least they fought until the very end.
I was glad when I saw Mommy Rubz' blog about
this Charity Post for Cancer that's going on the blogsphere to increase cancer awareness by sharing real-life stories of cancer patients we know or by writing useful information about cancer prevention. This started from a blogger who started this pledged that for every 10 blog posts made, she will donate a can of Prosure package, a nutrition formula that helps manage weight loss due to cancer, to CanShare, a support group for cancer patients.
Stef, the owner of the blog is also planning to organize an event for cancer patients and survivors this December 2011. It will be a fun-filled day with games, performances, sharing and inspiration. You can donate via PayPal to doc_alma_jones(at)yahoo(dot)com. Or contact her directly.
