A early morning ramble about The Big “C” the definition in the Oxford dictionary is: informal; Cancer.
You know an illness has grown in our environment when the initial of the illness is listed and defined by itself within the world’s Oxford Dictionary.
When you can’t look crossed eyed and someone you know is being diagnosed with or being effected by the deisase.
I have had The Big “C” entered in and out of my life in one way or another since I was a newborn.
When I was born I had marks on my head that the doctors labeled strawberry birthmark. Thank goodness for Mother’s intuition! She went to several doctors until she found one who would listen to her, saying something was not right. These were not birthmarks, especially the one on my forehead. The doctor agree to test the marks and found that they were indeed hemotimiom tumors. The smaller ones were benign. However, the one on my forehead was miglignet and was grow inward, connected to and feeding off of one of the main arteries of my tiny brain. Surgery was quickly done. This was the first time The Big “C” entered my life.
My maternal-granfather died if cancer brought on by Dibieties and smoking (I was only around 4 or 5), my Aunt died if Lung Cancer when I was in my early 30’s, my Dad died of Tongue cancer when I was in my 30’s, my Mom died if Lung/Brain Cancer when I was in my early 40’s, and my sister died in a car crash following an ambulance to hospital that held her husband who had Cancer, I was in my 40’s.
Now, my ex-wife is fighting this monster for the second time and my brother is fighting it as well.
When will the Big “C” get killed for good? When will we no longer hear on a daily bases how a family member or friend is having a “C” scare or being diagnosed with It? When are we going to digbt the pharmaceutical companies, the Goverment and find what is causing more and more die with this Big “C”. Is this Genocide in the mass but threw a silient chemical war fare? These are the things my Bi-polar brain thinks of everytime I hear if anither family or friend diagnosed!
