    Hey there----- YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM, there is a constructive plan as to why you have cancer, it may or may not become apparant to you or us, now or in the future. But you having cancer can be a very positive thing to many people that may change their lives to the better in ways we may never know, so on and so on......

    Keep Positive !!!!!!
