A friend recently shared this article from the Huff Post blog. If you’re one of those who are uneasy with or burdened by terms like “hero”, heroine”, “battle”, “fight”, “winning” and “losing” that seem always to come up in any discussion involving cancer, you may like to read it. It’s tough, clear-eyed, full of sound sense and well worthwhile. As the author, Kevin Lankes, observes:
“There are no heroes when it comes to cancer. There are people who live, and there are people who die. Sometimes there are reasons, sometimes there aren’t. Sometimes it makes sense. Mostly it doesn’t.”
Thanks to Elaine for sharing this thoughtful piece.
