Even though it’s a very catchy and frequently used cliche I’ve never been able to say “F%ck cancer”. It’s never worked for me, sure cancer has hurt/touched many of us in ways that we may never be able to deal with fully, it’s definitely changed my life and been destructive for decades, but yet I prefer to know more and understand how to best deal with it than just get mad/sad and yell out “F%CK CANCER!!”, I’d rather say… Fix cancer, wooooosah.
I’d also suggest doing basic research, this way you’re better prepared to even have a meaningful conversation regarding the topic. Some of my biggest frustrations come when some folks engage me regarding the illness/treatment but have no idea what they’re talking about and basically start venting or retelling a random “cancer story” 😟, but yet so much of this info is public knowledge… Like I always say, look it up! The more we know individually the more we can do collectively.
I don’t have all the answers but I’ll share what I know the best I can. Hopefully this helps someone today or in the near future.
