Humanity: Kicking Cancer’s Ass

When the going gets tough, there is always hope.

When hope is hard to come by, humanity can do the trick.

Check this out:

No matter what we are faced with or forced to confront, when even hope seems implausible, we have humanity. Sometimes that can make all the difference.

Strangers can become unwitting angels to someone who is suffering. It’s not something you (or they) can control; it has to do with the formula that occurs when our Biology feels Chemistry and does Physics. We are scared and in need of assurance; we are vulnerable and desperate for consolation. We are people and need to grasp whatever hands might be reaching out in the dark; we are hoping to be saved by that human touch.

"As an oncologist treating a difficult and often fatal group of cancers, I witness firsthand as patients and their ‘villages’ cope with the diagnosis. So many decisions, so much emotion, and everyone does it a bit differently. No one path will serve; instead it is a truly individual course we choose. Sean Murphy’s book is a great new resource for patients and families, and frankly for us all."
