Held my tongue quite a bit on this one……
I’m just wondering dandiamond how you find these cartoons humorous in the face of a serious and life wasting disease?
My Dad died of lymphoma. He wasted away and parts of his body FELL OFF. Mom actually put one part in a jar and we took it to the hospital on his next visit.
My Grandmother and Grandfather both died of cancer.
I simply don’t find these cartoons humorous.
We tried all the experimental treatments and took trips to Washington DC, but everyone still DIED.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I see how some might say we should make fun of our biggest threat, but Christ, what’s next, jokes on home invasion, jokes on car jacking, or jokes on Rape.
Oh, I can see it know, Mary was gang raped by 5 men, but look at how flexible she is now.
It’s just freaking sick if you ask me.
Some things need to be taken seriously. Period.
Your joking only implies you care not for the real and hard feelings that come when one is faced with this most serious disease.
It’s just not F’ing funny.
BUT ----- DW brings up one thing that keeps me from going over the edge. Are YOU dandaimond suffering through cancer right now? Do YOU have it, and is that why you are making these jokes? Dandiamond, I’m asking you now, do you have cancer?

The American Academy of Family Physicians and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, feel that the high false-positive rate (66% of positive tests are wrong) and the subsequent inconvenience and cost of more confirmatory testing make the PSA a poor general screening test. They do not recommend routine screening. On the other hand, because early detection may save lives, the American Cancer Society and the American Urological Association feel annual testing should begin at age 50 for all men.
