Having spent last Christmas visiting my husband in hospital and praying he would recover from lung cancer surgery after being admitted to intensive care three times I would definitely eradicate cancer from the world.

I believe all things happen for a reason and my husband having cancer, age at only 49 and surviving, sent us both on a spiritual journey we would have never gone on if it wasn’t for the cancer. However not all people are this lucky! While in hospital I witnessed and experienced the pain and trauma families and friends are put through with this disease and it shook me up quite a bit.

Even though I know there are many other diseases that are killers I don’t feel we can eradicate all of them as then we would live forever. The world couldn’t cope resource wise with this but eliminating the biggest killer would certainly ease the burden of those close to it and the worry of it returning!

  • Cancer is a horrible horrible disease, my mother in law died from it. I think we need to have diseases that kill people though to jeep the population in check. If no one died, the world be a crowded place to be


  • I hate cancer! My grandmother died from it and my Aunty has it. My friend was diagnosed last year with breast cancer…she was lucky she found it when she did as the doc said 2 more weeks and she wouldn’t be alive. And now only 1 week ago, my personal trainer, the healthiest and fittest woman I know, was diagnosed with a brain tumour! Cancer does not discriminate! I wish there was a cure.


  • i ike these stories


  • Amen to that, may the road to healing be smooth for your husband


  • I don’t think there’s too many people whose lives have not been touched by cancer.


  • Yes cancer is the most horrible disease as I have lost a few loved ones through this disease I wish you and your husband many blessings


  • i wish him all the best through his cancer journey
