Admittedly cancer does have its drawbacks, but it really is pretty spectacular.
I’ve always been a bit of a positive person (apparently it’s genetic according to the Guardian this week), but even I was beginning to see the worrying trend towards materialistic selfishness amongst my fellow ‘human beings’. However, I would like to publicly state there is nothing like a bit of cancer to remind you of the goodness of your fellow man and women.
I’ve come into contact with almost exclusively good people since my diagnosis. Not goody goodies, but real decent, honest, warm, compassionate and helpful people. And those nearest and dearest to me have become even closer. So all round not a bad result!
