Cancer and Age

Posted by ewan on Wednesday, June 27, 2012,
It is widely believed that cancer only strike at the old and those with unhealthy life styles. The smokers, the unfit, the meat eaters  and so on and on. But this is not true at all. Cancer can strike at anybody at any time. The fit, young, sporting individual can also get cancer or in some cases, children are born with cancer. Leukemia strike more children than adults.
Cancer does not know age or gender or color. It is a disease that all need to take note of, even the young. I do agree that t...

the Bucket List

Posted by ewan on Saturday, June 16, 2012,
Tonight I watched the Movie, "The Bucket List" again and it came to me that does not matter how much money or how little one have, Cancer can strike any person. The man with the average money, had the support of his whole family in his last days while the person with all the money in the world, had nobody. Money is not as important as family. While you as an individual spend most of your time making as much money as possible, you might drive away the people that you will need in your last day...

What about the FAMILY? Continue....

Posted by ewan on Wednesday, June 13, 2012,
Who does the family turn to once the patient has passed away for comfort? In some cases the family turn to each other to share the pain of losing a loved one. In some cases the family members are so scattered in this modern era, that it is not always possible that they can spend some face time with their family members, so they turn to the medical fraternity, but a psychologist, although trained to deal with patients, does not always know from personal experience what the patient is experienc...

What about the FAMILY?

Posted by ewan on Monday, June 11, 2012,
What happens to the rest of the Family while one member suffers from Cancer? Interesting question as all the focus is usually placed on the patient. The family live with the shock when first informed about the patients illness and then start dealing with the realization in their own way. It is one thing that a family need to live with the shock of cancer that can still be treated and it is a totally different issue that another family need to deal with when the patient is terminal. 
In my case...

Another Funeral

Posted by ewan on Friday, June 8, 2012,
It would seem that these days I hear of another funeral taking place for a loved one that passed away from cancer. This time it was a youngster in his late thirties that passed away from cancer due to the fact that he did not pay attention to what his body was telling him. Even when the signals were clear, he delayed to get medical assistance as his work was more important than his health.
Eventually, with the insistence from his family, he went to the doctor and got tested. The tests came bac...

Finding a cure for Cancer

Posted by ewan on Wednesday, June 6, 2012,
What If, tomorrow one of the researchers find a cure for cancer, who will benefit by the new cure? That is a question that has been bothering me recently. The mere fact that a pharmaceutical company found the cure, they will benefit financially the most. Now, with all the funds being donated towards cancer research, is it not fair to make the new medication available at cost to the public that need it. Yet, when a new cure might be found is anyones guess, but just think about it a little bit....

New cases reported daily.

Posted by ewan on Sunday, June 3, 2012,
Many individuals receive the message on a daily basis that they do not want to hear. "Mr./Mrs./Miss./Ms., it saddens me to inform you that the diagnoses is Cancer." The rest of the conversation with the medical practitioner is usually not even hear till the shock of the word Cancer sinks in.  Then the individual start to ask the question, "how long doctor?". The diagnoses of the progression of cancer differ in every case. They gave my father minimum 6 months, and that was in August last year....
