while watching my sisters keeper. ugh every time I watch this movie.. idk why I do this to myself. Someone I know lost their daughter to childhood cancer this year. She was only 2 years old. just a couple months older then my daughter Natalie. They found out she had cancer right around the time of their first birthdays.. its heartbreaking. with the amount of money being put towards a cure how long do you think it will take to find one? are they even close?
a friend of mine died two years ago as a result of cystic fibrosis. We all knew it was coming but didn't make it easier. and her little sister has the same disease. Im just praying they find a cure before it takes her life as well. Last I heard they were coming out with a new medication that was supposed to be some kind of cure but it needed FDA approval still..
have you lost anyone to cancer? or any disease like this? have any of you had cancer? does it run in your family? it runs in mine.
My family has lost friends to cancer, but nobody really close to me. I've lost people to other things though.
I'm probably the wrong person to ask about a cure. I tend to lean toward the theory that there is more money in treatment than a cure so that is where the bulk of effort is concentrated. It's a sad cynical way to look at things, I realize.
I'm sorry for the losses you have experienced. I think it's probably harder when its a young person. It seems so unnatural for a child to be terminally ill.
