A Little Vent of sorts

We got some further news on my mother in law, Patty....(I've always called her Mom so will in this post)..Mom had a cat scan done yesterday and the cancer has spread throughout her body....the doctor says its a very aggressive type...he did suggest chemo but as it would only give her an additional two months if that..she decided not to go through the discomfort and pain......so Hospice has been called in and starts today....Hospice was very wonderful when my own mother was ill and am so thankful for such a wonderful organization....the doctor gives her 2 to 4 months....

my grandmother, my dad and one cousin died from cancer....my dad got his from exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam.... my cousin by going on a special natural foods diet program..managed to put his cancer in remission for a number of years before finally succumbing..he got an extra 10 years and was able to enjoy riding his horses and camping..things he loved to do.. his bucket list...

then you read things  in the news Canadian Researchers Obtain a Simple Cure
it sounds quite hopeful if only someone would forget the bottom line and think more about the millions who could be helped...
