Cancer Club thoughts for the day

It’s your fault that you have cancer. Wow! I started listening to a meditation tape on cancer given by a dear friend. The first thing this woman says on tape is it that it’s your fault you have cancer.

I was shocked. Fortunately, I don’t believe it. It was still unnerving.

Cancer starts with the change of one single cell in your body.

If you caused cancer by being stressed, by being too fat, by not eating the right things, by not exercising enough, we would all have cancer, most of us anyway. It makes the assumption that we have more control than we do.

Some people we encounter would love to think we did something wrong to get cancer. Then, the theory goes,  if they avoid that something, they will not get cancer. The randomness of cancer is all too scary.

Cancer happens. The question is not what we did wrong. The question is how do we deal with it.
