Devoncat, you know, I feel the same way about people with "easy" cancers, horrible as that is... I mean, how awful is it when you think snide thoughts about someone who had a lumpectomy for breast cancer?
But some people understand. An acquaintance of mine said, "Well, I had cancer, but it was one of the 'good' kinds (prostate). I was never bad-sick, like you."
And I do know someone with pancreatic cancer who is doing reasonably well for the moment.
Peace, hope, and healing to all!
