    About the bias in cancer care and treatments-spread the word


    I could have done this report because me and all of my fellow LC patients have lived it.

      Thanks for the link - very interesting. I know several people who have been treated for LC who never smoked a day in their lives.

      And the thing is even if they did do they deserve to die? No one with cancer deserves to die.
      Let alone feel the stigma of an attitude.. I refuse to answer people who ask me if I smoked.
      The problem is that LC research is 15 years behind..Is that right?

      All the money paid by tobacco companies and not a penny to research? But instead to the attorneys pockets. Billions..We could have a cure with that money. Its a crime.. Its genocide.
      Absolute genocide.

      I have been a cancer advocate for 12 years. Long before my DX. And this year alone the NCI was reduced by 10%.

      Can you feel my anger?

Another woman I know has endometrial cancer, also never smoked. She also has lung involvement. Remember Christopher Reeve's wife? Dana something-or-other, never smoked, had full-blown lung cancer. These are only 3, but still...............
