A few night ago I watched a BBC film documentary about living with cancer called A Time to Live.
Several courageous people of various ages, who all had a diagnosis of terminal cancer, were interviewed. Steve and I watched it together.
We felt saddened that many of the people accepted that death would come as predicted by their doctors. A few seemed determined to continue the fight and beat it. Others seemed content to go, feeling they had lived a good life and since the death sentence had been pronounced they had been able to fulfill their bucket lists, prepare themselves and plan for their families post their death. Most alluded to the positives that the diagnosis had provided for them.
Steve and I have been where they all are - facing the death sentence. Steve too was given just three months to live. So how did he beat his terminal cancer, and not just live for a few more years, but for thirty years and more? What happened, what did he do, what did we do different to those we saw on TV the other night? We believe we know the answer and. hopefully, so will any reader of 'Nipples to Kneecaps - to die or not to die with cancer.'
