When you hear "You have Cancer" (like I just did)
I struggled for a while deciding if this kind of information was something that I wanted to go 'public' with at all. I mean, when you're told that you have cancer, you think about things like that. You don't want to feel like you're looking for pity and sympathy, and you sure as hell don't want to keep that stuff locked up inside where it does nothing but fester and add to the illness. So, before I get into my story, I want to tell you 'why' I'm going public.
