Disease and the ills it brings with it!!

15 Mar

How do you console a friend who has lost a family member to a disease.And what do you say when that disease is CANCER.

Cancer grows out of normal cells in the body. Normal cells multiply when the body needs them, and die when the body doesn’t need them. Cancer appears to occur when the growth of cells in the body is out of control and cells divide too quickly. It can also occur when cells forget how to die.

There are many causes for cancer like viruses, excessive drinking, obesity, radiation, genetic problems and even environmental problems.But most of the time, no one knows the exact cause for cancer.

When I think about “Cancer as a deadly disease” it scares me alot.

Cancer sort of runs in my family.My grand mom was detected with it an odd seven years ago and my mum was detected with it about roughly three years ago. Both of them have successfully fought cancer and have been cancer free for some years now. It is a tough battle and I must say I admire the courage both of them have.They are truly my heroes and role models for taking a disease in their stride and not letting it take over them.

But what do you say to the family members of people who have lost their lives to cancer???

I can’t imagine being in their state and it would kill me every time someone would talk about it.Even empathy,however sincere and genuine doesn’t seem enough in such cases.

Every night I go to bed and I wish that no one has to go through a dreadful and awful disease like cancer.The torture and agony faced by not only the person with the disease but the entire family is just awful.
