Hello Cancer

Hello Cancer motto

This is where tough love comes in. The great thing about a website is that you can read from the comfort of your home or work. If any symptoms feel familiar, no one is asking you to get on the radio and broadcast it to the world. All you have to do is pick up the phone and make an appointment with your doctor and have a private conversation with them. You have control if you act now. Every week, month, year that you wait is the difference between you having major surgery, having an organ removed, popping hundreds of pills or multiple chemo treatments for something that could have been taken care of with one small surgery to remove a small tumor for example. If you aren't thinking of yourself, then think of your family and friends. But also remember, you aren't in a position to help anyone else if you don't take care of yourself first. Think about it.
