Raising awareness

I am re-posting of MeRaw, who has lost a young son to testicular cancer.
We all can contribute to raising awareness to help control cancer. Cancer is a very common disease (for example; in Canada, 45% of the residents are estimated to get cancer)…

On top of that, our special needs children/adults may require their families/health care team to be more vigilant about the cancer awareness/symptoms/management.
Help spread the word please.

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Sunday 7th August

This weekend has been all about meeting up with survivors and raising awareness of Testicular Cancer, and taking part in the annual memorial trek up Mount Snowdon.

Last year I made a video to coincide with the weekend


This year I have decided to write a petition for Testicular Cancer screening to be made available to Special Needs young men.

Click on Frankie Angel bear to go to the petition

It would mean a great deal to me if you were to watch, read and sign.

The life with cancer

I have read quite a bit about the cancer patients’/survivors’ experiences on the net.

I want you to know I admire your courage; the way you handle your diagnosis, treatment, all the changes and worries about yourself, your loved ones, and your future. I also understand your frustration with the doctors, nurses, or medical care as a whole that fails to recognize, acknowledge, listen to, understand, inform, or treat you as you deserve.

I admire the fact that your life, your body, and many things in them change so fast, so profoundly yet you keep going. I admire the strength you have; physical, emotional, and psychological. I love the fact that many strive to raise awareness about the issues around how cancer patients and survivors are treated, what they experience, and what further we need to improve.

Cancer affects all of us; it is just a matter of time for many of us. It is the patients, survivors, and their caregivers who make us see the life with cancer so sincerely, openly, and honestly. When we need help and support, we know where to find it. Thanks for sharing your stories.
