The 19 yr old Dux of our school in 2011 is currently undergoing 2nd stage chemo for leukaemia. It is an awful situation for a family to be in with a bone marrow transplant due in the next 6 weeks. I along with an entire school community are hoping & praying for Jim. We raised over 1500 week b4 last in his honour for research for the cancer foundation. Not much, but a start. Light n love to all enduring this horrid disease.

I lost my Mom in 2006 to lung cancer she was 52. After trip after trip to the doctor and being put on oxygen, it became to much she got put in the hospital and finally diagnosed although I suspect she already knew. She passed a couple of days after being admitted and the day before her birthday and was laid to rest 3 days later on my birthday. She's in a better place now and in no pain. Hoping for a cure no one should go through it.

My Father died of Chronic Lymph Cancer. Hence, not only do I hate The Big C, I hope to God there are many cures for all the different types of Cancer destroying lives all across the globe.

I want to honor my frined Lucy who died of cancer last year. She survived cancer for ten years, five of which she was in stage 4. She and her loving husband Charlton were raising their two children. She was always upbeat and possitive, though her oldest daughter had a severe physical disability. She never gave up and was able to care for her family until two weeks before she died.

My mother died of brain cancer; my husband died of lung cancer and I'm 12 months after finishing chemo (following a mastectomy) for breast cancer, so I'm making a noise for a lot of us! But all is good

When my REALLY REALLY GREAT friend told me the doctors had found cancer cells in her intestines it took me a minute to comprehend. Up until then, this was just something that happened to "other people" and I had never had to experience someone I actually knew going through that. But after I got over my initial shock I realized that she was going to get through this. Not only because, thank God, the doctors caught it early on, but because she's a strong girl with a big heart. She's a swimmer...

When my REALLY REALLY GREAT friend told me the doctors had found cancer cells in her intestines it took me a minute to comprehend. Up until then, this was just something that happened to "other people" and I had never had to experience someone I actually knew going through that. But after I got over my initial shock I realized that she was going to get through this. Not only because, thank God, the doctors caught it early on, but because she's a strong girl with a big heart. She's a swimmer and, even with cancer, qualified, yet again, for state. She couldn't go, obviously, because she had her chemo to get done. But we were all still proud of her every step of the way. She's a fighter. Let me put this into perspective: She once came over to me and said she was annoyed with herself for not winning a certain swim race. I asked her who it was against and she said... that's right... Missy Franklin. But she won every single other race she competed in. As of today she's still going! :)

15 years ago I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. 2 years later, after several surgeries and radiotherapy I was going through metastasis. A massive tumor on my neck pressing my throat made it difficult even to breath. I entered a series of 8 chemotherapy sessions in the National Cancer Institute in Mexico City. On the first session my room mate at the hospital passed away, he couldn´t manage with the drug. I knew seven more shots were coming ahead for me. There should be something else...

15 years ago I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. 2 years later, after several surgeries and radiotherapy I was going through metastasis. A massive tumor on my neck pressing my throat made it difficult even to breath. I entered a series of 8 chemotherapy sessions in the National Cancer Institute in Mexico City. On the first session my room mate at the hospital passed away, he couldn´t manage with the drug. I knew seven more shots were coming ahead for me. There should be something else that could be done in order to heal, or at least survive!!...And I did..I prayed God for help..and help arrived. One of my neigbours gave me a book he ran into at the bookstore.."This can help you", he said. In the book I read about how a man had been able to get rid of a lung tumor faster thn expected by using what was described as Creative Visualization. And I believed. I wanted to survive...and I did. Immediately after reading the book I started by creating my own visualization model and I dedicated many hours a day to the mental exercise. 8 days later the tumor on the neck was significantly smaller and rapidly decreasing its size. By the time of the second chemoterapy session, the tumors were almost gone. I only required a total of 3 sessions. Tumors never came back. I had a new chance to improve my life...and I did. Cancer teaches you about what is really important in life: To fully assume responsability for your existance, to clarify the purpose of your life, to be able to accept and love your own being and to live a coherent life where your thoughts, your feelings and actions move together on the same direction: Love.

For Nancy, beloved mother, loved friend and sister. She never reached 40 but managed to touch so many lives with her love. 35 years ago, Mama, and I still miss you. Breast cancer turned the last years she had into a nightmare. She would tell you to be wise-practise self exams-medical exams-pay attention to yourself. And she would tell you to thank God for organizations like the cancer society for all the hard fought advances so that those who died before can now live. God bless you all.
