Cancer is the Worst

I believe I mentioned in June that my cousin had a brain tumor. They underwent surgery and the doctors were able to successfully removed 90% of the tumor. This was a scary procedure because it was a large tumor that was entwined with important nerves. I'm super glad the doctors were able to successfully remove most of the tumor.

Health problems happen. I understand that. I am now currently thinking about a good friend of mine who has early stages of cancer, and has completely changed their lifestyle to try and combat it. Is this something I should be thinking about? Probably. Will I think about it more? Probably not. There seems to be conflicting evidence that using a microwave or a cell phone will give you cancer, so if that's true, there's probably not much I can do to stop the cancer.

I know I can improve my health, and it's hard to do. I really don't think we (as humans) will stop cancer through exposure, but we'll stop cancer through research and medicine. There are so many bad things in the world, and I don't want to give you another negative thing to think about. I believe that statistically, someone important in your life will get cancer. With knowing this, our actions can be to live healthier lives and make memories with our loved ones.

Signed,

Mitch
