My 79 year old father has cancer again. We’re not getting emotional about it. We’re all just talking about it in a way that it’s just one more battle to face and deal with. We’re not hard, unfeeling people but like many, who been through hard, shitty times we’re damn tough and have learned to confront the impossible and the ghastly and get on with it.
Cancer is the most massive wake up call you can get. We rise to meet the challenge because cancer wants a fight and fuck it we’ll give it one.
