Has anyone here had a family member or a friend or maybe themselves, have a battle with cancer?? Do you take any extra precautions for yourself, to try and make sure cancer doesn't ever become a part of your life?? I know there are no miracle pills to keep from getting cancer, but of course smoking is bad for you as well as drinking, and many other factors. In my life, I am surrounded by cancer. On my Mother's side, I lost my Grandfather to cancer, my Grandmother to cancer, My beautiful Mother as well....also my Mother's older brother and her younger sister, all died from that fucking disease. Then, on my real Dad's side, my Dad died of liver cancer, he basically drank himself to death, he died at age 54. And all of the people I mentioned above on my Mother's side, all of them except my Aunt, all died at the age of 66. My Aunt lived to be 68. So, I'm kinda wondering if that is going to be my route out! I have never smoked and I have never drank alcohol.....well no beer, occasionally I like a mixed drink I like to think I'm pretty healthy now, but getting cancer is scary, as I've had to deal with it personally myself. It's not fun, and it's hard to live with and watch a loved one go thru.
