I remember reading somewhere the phrase ‘Everyone has Cancer.’ It was disappointing that the article did not explain further, just stressed the need for a change in one’s lifestyle.
A lot has been said about the major role of genetics in the incidence of cancer. The cancer history in our family dating back two generations was truly cause for concern
I was still in grade school when both paternal grandparents died: Lolo had cancer of the lungs; Lola Ca of the liver. I was a senior nursing student when our maternal grandpa succumbed to cancer of the colon.
I believe this history hanging over us siblings instinctively led me to go into Onco Nursing, to try and get to understand what we were up against. And then Mama had cancer of the breast. Somehow, something worked for Mama. To survive stage 4 breast cancer only on a strict regimen of diet, enzymes, and laetrile, and then eventually succumb to cancer of the colon after choosing to go off her 27-year regimen was to me clear evidence that the dreaded Big C was there all the time but that it could be controlled!
