Readers respond to previous CURE issues. 

PUBLISHED September 14, 2012

I am so thankful my wife signed me up for a free subscription to CURE. I find myself reading articles over and over again to learn everything I can about cancer. I especially enjoy the Voices section. I was so moved by “The Power of Positive Thinking” article by Christine Sunderman Russell, I decided to write about my journey with Hodgkin lymphoma. After finishing up my article one night in June, I received the summer issue of CURE the next day. It was amazing to read “The Write Stuff.” It was like you wrote the article for me. I reread my expressive writing and in one of my paragraphs there were the words “because” and “understand.” Yes, expressive writing is an important part of my recovery.

The Write Stuff” could apply to any of the creative arts. My area of photography, for example, would be very beneficial. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for the article on oropharyngeal cancer. Few people know it is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. It is becoming more prevalent among young adults, and my son is among those battling it. Articles like "Facing the Facts" help raise awareness and provide hope.

I liked the article about cancer rehabilitation (“Road to Recovery”). There was not anything like that in my area when I completed my treatment two years ago.

Editor-at-Large Kathy LaTour responds: The idea of rehabilitation for cancer patients is just catching on and, as a former patient, you can advocate for change in your area. Talk to your oncologist the next time you go in for a checkup about adding cancer rehabilitation, and take him or her a copy of CURE.

I love this magazine! I did not find CURE until I was almost done with radiation, three years ago. Now I get my own free subscription. Thank you very much. I have enjoyed learning from each issue. I also hand out the subscription cards and pass my copy on to others. We survivors need to make sure this wonderful book is in the hands of those going through chemo, etc., today!

When I had a radical mastectomy, the last thing I wanted to see was a woman with a shaggy small dog on a leash at the foot of my bed (Therapy Animals Help Relieve Anxiety of Cancer). A couple of hours later, a man appeared with a shaggy dog in his arms and I remarked, “Not again, a woman was just here a little while ago.” He seemed upset and left in a huff, but I don't care. I asked the woman if she had a koala, kangaroo, wombat or even a bunny rabbit and she looked strangely at me. I love Aussie animals and loved to be around them on my trips to Australia.

The bottom line is that these people should realize not everyone wants a dog or cat in their hospital room. After all, you are in the hospital due to illness, injury or surgery.
