    Stage IV cancer survivor Herman Cain has been hospitalized for Covid 19. Your thoughts

    Herman Cain was hospitalized about 10 Days ago. He is reported to be improving. He has stage IV colon cancer with mets to the liver.
    I first noticed Mr. Cain after I was diagnosed with Stage IV esophageal cancer. I had been given 4-9 months to live. I saw him on one of those morning programs like Good Morning America. At that time he had been 4 years cancer free. He was very inspirational at that program. He gave me great hope. Now I find myself in a similar position, medically. He is giving me some hope to survive the virus.
    I am putting all my political feelings aside. I do hope he survives

      His strength of will should carry him through both challenges.

      It's often inspiring to see someone who looks like a "normal" person like me and you that has beaten a challenge that we are facing right now. It makes me say that if they can do it then so can I!

      He says that he is getting better because of all the people who are praying for him.

      I hadn't heard that Herman Cain has COVID. So happy to hear that he is recovering from the disease. That's encouraging, for sure.
