In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer.


I have a very limited knowledge of my direct family, their parents, etc. I know my mom had precancerous colon polyps that were removed. My husband's step dad is dealing with melanoma and being treated well for it. A 'step-aunt' [husband's aunt] is dealing with breast cancer.

I've had a lot of friends who have been touched by cancer in some form: breast, uterine, color, liver, etc. Most made it through the battle. Two didn't.

let's see, three of my mother's siblings, and one of my father's all past away from cancer. I believe at two of my aunts (by marriage) as well. Each had a different one: lung, brain, kidneys, throat and I'm forgetting one.

Myself? I had cervical cancer [stage 3] back in the 70's when I was in my 20's. I get a pap every year along with a mammogram.

So far so good.

For some reason I keep coming back to Michael Westen the leading character in "Burn Notice". I think he'd be a fascinating person to talk with, especially if he'd just relax and be natural. He certainly has a broad background to draw on for discussions.

None of the other characters from shows I enjoy came to mind for some reason - maybe because I've had a chance to meet several of the actors and that now colors my view of the character.
