My hand sort-of works.
A friend in his 70s has cancer, and I do not wish to go through what he is still going through with the chemo and radiation. He doesn't wish to, either, but he is hanging in there.
I hate being nauseous, and I'm not that fond of pain, either. No family history of cancer for me, but I just found out that I supposedly have some genetic predisposition to clotting.
I take no prescription drugs, not yet.
Sometimes prayers are answered; some of mine have been, even though I "have some issues" with God.
