Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul.
When someone has cancer, the whole family and everyone who loves them does, too.
You can be a victim of cancer, or a survivor of cancer. It's a mindset.
Depression can seem worse than terminal cancer, because most cancer patients feel loved and they have hope and self-esteem.
David D. Burns
Cancer is messy and scary. You throw everything at it, but don't forget to throw love at it. It turns out that might be the best weapon of all.
I keep dreaming of a future, a future with a long and healthy life, not lived in the shadow of cancer but in the light.
The goal is to live a full, productive life even with all that ambiguity. No matter what happens, whether the cancer never flares up again or whether you die, the important thing is that the days that you have had you will have lived.
Each of us should think of the future. Every puff on a cigarette is another tick closer to a time bomb of terrible consequences. Christopher Hitchens didn't care about the consequences of smoking cigarettes. Tragically, he died of throat cancer in December 2011.
With over 3 million women battling breast cancer today, everywhere you turn there is a mother, daughter, sister, or friend who has been affected by breast cancer.
Every time I see documentaries or infomercials about little kids with cancer, I just freak out. It affects me on the highest emotional level... Anytime I think about it, it makes me sadder than anything I can think of.
Cancer affects all of us, whether you're a daughter, mother, sister, friend, coworker, doctor, patient.
Breast cancer is not just a disease that strikes at women. It strikes at the very heart of who we are as women: how others perceive us, how we perceive ourselves, how we live, work and raise our families-or whether we do these things at all.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
I'm battling cancer. It's another battle I intend to win.
Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.
Time is shortening. But every day that I challenge this cancer and survive is a victory for me.
Cancer victims who don't accept their fate, who don't learn to live with it, will only destroy what little time they have left.
