Cancer does not effect only the person who has the horrible disease, but the family and loved ones surrounding him/her. I hate it. Who doesn't?
I hate the energy it sucks from everyone.
I hate the time it takes for all the tests, the bloodwork, then the "treatments." Time away from family, from work, from daily activities. Precious time.
And most of all, I hate the crap-shoot that the patient must play throughout the whole ordeal.
It is a crapsoot. Nothing more. Nothing less.
I'd rather play the lottery and I'm not a gambling person.
A friend of Joseph and Danette who has gone through the crap-shoot herself, sent Joseph a hat to keep his bald head warm. The words say it all.
