I am getting a little pissed with the never ending but well meant assumption that everyone with cancer will recover.
I went to a Living with Cancer workshop today, and even there, I had to point out that we do not all survive even with all the advances in cancer treatments.
Sometimes our cancer is found just too late, and I got the usual response of people not wanting to talk to me or be near me when I tell them I am on palliavtive chemo to buy a bit more time.
This is really getting on my nerves, does anyone else experience this or am I just paranoid?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
