Lung Cancer?? Are you serious? This is happening to a healthy, active person who has never smoked a day in her life. Not only that, but has no family members that smoker or friends that light up. The big C word sends anyone to their knees, especially when you least expect it, no symptoms, and no family history. This past year, our family has lost two very close family members and the emotional roller coaster has been unbearable. Come to find out the specialist goes on to say that he's not surprised with all our losses that it was lung cancer. Did you know that emotions go to your lungs? Yes, our lungs house our emotions, and if you are one to hold those emotions inward, you could be harming your body. My advice for you all, is deep breathing, yoga, or acupuncture all help with releasing these emotions. Don't let it be you, let them out.

  4. Sorry to hear that, Dena! My aunt just kicked Cancer's patooty for the second time this past fall and my great uncle has it currently. It is just plain pointless, I feel. In a weird way, I suppose everything has a good purpose. With my aunt, she became a mentor for others. With my great uncle, his broken family is learning how to become more of a team. With your family, I am sure they are as strong and spunky as you are, so I too hope that the Cancer's but is well-kicked. I'll pray for you all. :)
