I agree cancer is not the worst thing that can happen to anyone. Dying needlessly at the hands of a psycho with a submachine gun is. Many people who are dx with cancer are a lot older than the victims of the Parkland shooting.
Godspeed Parkland. Praying for peace and healing.
After being dx with pancreatic cancer in June 2009, I knew immediately the only chance I had for any longer than average survival is to be a peace with the cancer. No 'why me' mindset. Even my social worker said ' I never heard you asking why me'. 1.6 million people are dx with cancer every year in america so why not me.
6 years later I am in the less than 5% survivors group. Still working, climbing mountains.
I wish everyone my good fortune.
Better to be a peace with the cancer rather than angry at it.
I have been at peace with my pancreatic cancer for 6 years from day one.
That's why I am a 6 yr survivor. Still working and climbing mountains.
Never felt any pity too.
