You hear about people getting cancer every day. Sometimes it’s a co-worker, sometimes it’s the parent of a friend, and in really heart wrenching circumstances, it might be a child.
The question that I have asked myself many times is “what would I do if it were my parent, what would I do if it were my wife, what would I do if it were my child?” It’s a frightening scenario to push your imagination into, but an important one, because there is so much information out there and even more misinformation.
If a health crisis arises, I want to be informed enough to work with doctors and health practitioners to devise a plan. Not simply succumb to the chemo, surgery route. And taking that one step further, why isn’t there a health team teaching my family and I how to prevent cancer in the first place? In this technologically advanced world, why is preventative health care still in the dark ages?
