It came as a shock, then as a bit of confusion - I get the connection, some cancers are more "socially acceptable" I suppose, but SEXY??? I just keep remembering when my hair started falling out and I was having a particularly "up chuck" day - so there I was in hospital, connected to the chemo pump, going bald and my boyfriend (who later decided it was too much after all) holding the cardboard emesis basin under my chin for 3 hours!! Whoa - sexy stuff huh?? There is a website I know of that may be of interest to some: In my view, cancer is cancer, whether it invades your breast, your anus or your blood, but I do agree that some are given more thought and acceptance than others and I think it's disappointing.
