An idiot’s guide to accepting, living with, laughing at and dying from cancer
There are a few people in my life who are living with cancer and I, for one, cannot begin to imagine what they are going through.
Such is why I am intrigued whenever I hear another first-person story of someone’s life with cancer, including their coping mechanisms, the highs and lows, the ups and downs, and the ultimate realities of struggling to survive this battle with something called “cancer”.
Most of all, I appreciate when people are able to maintain their sense of humor through it all.
Such is what Cancer Giggles is all about.
It’s raw. It’s real. It’s a difficult read at times. But when it comes right down to it, it’s all about attitude and sense of humor.
If there is such a thing as a “funny cancer story”… it’s here.
After all… laughter is the best medicine!
Professionally, I pursued my Masters Degree in Family Therapy at Texas Tech — where I obtained invaluable expertise and experience helping people with a wide variety of physical and emotional health issues. Personally, I think it's useful when people realize that they're not the only one going through a difficult time. So any time that I think my personal health experiences would be helpful to someone else going through the same thing, I will share my story here. With health issues that I've personally experienced (like Endometriosis, Lyme Disease, Hysterectomy, Skin Cancer, Ganglion Cysts, Autism, and other topics that very few people enjoy talking about) and health products that I've found beneficial (like sleep aids, essential oils, and medications)… I do my best to provide my own raw and honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and (hopefully) find helpful. I'm grateful that I have a number of friends who have also been willing to share their very personal stories here — regarding their own physical and emotional health. When I'm not writing about health topics, you will find me sharing Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
