Image of World Cancer Day 2017
It is World Cancer Day 2017. The many diseases we call “cancer” will kill tens of millions over the coming years. Every sentient person should demand more investment in research against the many diseases that kill or maim our lovers, spouses, children, and other loved ones. See the World Cancer Day web site for the awful numbers.
On the more optimistic side, take a moment to watch young Jimmy celebrate reaching the end of his current journey through cancer. But keep in mind, it will be many years before Jimmy can really start to feel safe. And, take a moment to be grateful for your own health. Imagine what it’s like to go to bed every night wondering: “will tomorrow be the day I feel the return of my cancer.”
