THE C - WORD. . . .
I watched a story on telly the other night about a bloke who went through the cancer thing like I did. His was throat cancer, similar to mine, but he didn't have the same surgery I did. He could still speak normally, and was interviewed on radio and TV. But he had a stomach tube like mine, and underwent radiation therapy. At the end of the story, he was yet to have a PET scan whereas I had mine a month ago.
So there he was getting all this star treatment and I thought, "What the bloody hell's going on here?" Maybe I underestimated the magnitude of my ordeal hehe. I missed out on my 15 minutes of fame! So I went through my old journals and blogs and assembled a page with text and pics of my own battle, and called it The C Word.
If any of your Dunes followers are interested in reading my account of what it's like to go through such an ordeal, here's the link. It's not a very long piece - probably take 10 minutes or so.
