    I came across this poem today and thought this thread might be a suitable place to reporoduce it.



    SILENT CELL


    Oh pray, tell where you hide inside me creeping cancer
    You the big ĎCí who lurks hiding in all of us so they tell
    Now, science chases you, the secret mutant deathly cell
    So, come on you lumped clotted human eating chancer

    Show yourself. Surrender your evil flesh shrinking game
    Identify the part of my body you live in and will make lame
    Is it my stomach, lung, my breast, or grey-mattered brain?
    That you intend to invest your mutant cell dividing pain

    You think you have fooled the medics in their fruitless quest
    Denied them every avenue, blunted their searching test
    A favoured home for you the milk of life the female breast
    Strike at the heart of the maternal mothers feeding nest

    You like the hunt the battle tactics of the deadly silent killer
    You like the starring role in a body eating ghostly thriller
    You enjoy sucking the body ever thinner and thinner
    Laugh at the soldier drugs resultant hairless Yul Brynner

    But science hunts you chasing your evil destructive case
    Little time now to spread your damage, so you make haste
    Attack another innocent body, turning bone to liquid paste
    As your victim spits out the chemoís sour choking taste

    Are you a virus, bacterium and a diseased faulty mutant gene?
    Is it godís destiny where you are going where you have been?
    Wreaking your havoc, wiping out life Ė a horrible deadly scene
    Breeding death eating away life to the white, sheer bone, clean

    Drinking blood dry quenching the thirst of anaemia
    Gorging on white cells growing deathly leukaemia
    We shall fight you back we will beat you to death
    Defeat you with cyber chemicals and sweet angel breath

    There is one thing as sure as the tablets of Moses
    Your end is nigh like diphtheria polio and tuberculosis
    For time is catching you to end your victimís plight
    Science has you targeted firmly in its advanced sight

    And soon there will be no secret hiding corner place
    This time youíve lost youíre off target off the pace
    Your time is up I have no deathly fear
    Your very own death is now so near

    Time is up for your cancerous death-delivering race
    I can look you fairly squarely in your putrid face
    I have been blessed a power here on my earthly base
    And defeated you , escaped your hell Ė by Godís good grace.

    I was in school when my mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, she would have been in her late 40's early 50's.

    Didn't look good. Put up a hell of a fight.

    She eventually beat it and got the 5 yrs all clear.


    At the age of 70 she took her 2 granddaughters around Europe to celebrate her birthday. Something she could only dream of whilst hitting 50 and battling for her life. Never give up, never surrender. In the words of Sir Winston Churchill.

    I'm in remission!!

    Doc told me yesterday. The cancer is stabalised, not spreading not shrinking either. So, one more scan and then "see you in January". I still feel very tired all the time, am still skinny as a rake etc. But the doc said that it is all normal. My body needs to recuperate itself after all it has gone through - 12 litres of liquid drained from my lungs, over dosing of chemo, hospital virus, radio therapy, over dosing of drugs trial!! All the emotion stuff too - especially my Mum dying. Shit, all that since February.

    But I am so glad. I know it's not the end of treatment. But for the time being it's good to know. Just need my hair and nails to grow, and eat like a pig. Egg and chips tonight!! I used to hate chocolate. Now i love it!!

    Of course, I am not going to not keep up with you guys and your news. You've all been great with me!!

    What great news Patsy! Comes at a great time too- I lost a very good mate to cancer quite recently, his funeral was about a fortnight ago. He would normally be in Thailand now, staying with me. We both hoped, but not to be. Sucks.

    Keriiiist !

    Fantastic news that you're in remission, Patsy.

    But may I respectfully suggest that you do not pig out TOO much ? If it was me, I'd be ensuring that every morsel of food I ate was health food of some sort. (And dark chocolate is). Plenty of turmeric, kombucha, goats milk yoghurt, etc etc.

    They all give you a technical advantage.

    That has made my day.

    Now you can concentrate on healthy living. However painfully boring and tedious that may be.

    Keep going, Pats.

    Arrived back from Oz early today after spending a week with my Dad (who is 89) who had a major operation to remove rectum and bowel cancer.

    The doctors were amazed at how well the 7 1/2 hour operation went and his speedy physical recovery (he was walking in 2 days after surgery) but he is still suffering delirium which they tell me is common.

    Our fingers are crossed his mental health improves so he can go home where he desperately wants to be.

    And great news Patsy............keep fighting young lady.

    Thanks everyone!


    Pizza tonight! I do eat as healthy as i can, but recently just got my sense of taste back. And i never ate sweet stuff before, prefer cheese. I bought loads of greek yoghurt today, and cheese.

    We are having a wonderful Indian summer here, life is good!

    Not many pleasures in my life, so yes - i am still smoking, not as much as before. Of course, if i was told it is imperative to stop i would. But they seem to think its ok, for now. I did have patches in hospital, but the moment i left..... Also there was a good crowd at the bustop to gossip and puff with! A bit dangerous with a few oxygen thingies being towed around. Mine included.

    Really cut back on the wine consumption though.

    Written by Patsy three months ago. She didn't die from cancer if the reports on other threads are true.
    I am really sorry to have read those reports if indeed true.

    Patsy lived with cancer , battled with cancer and supposedly was winning that battle on her own terms.
    Sadly the "cure" also kills.

    RIP Patsy. You were a Tiger inside --- and an angel on this forum.

    Are you saying it was the treatment that took Patsycat?

    Just found out about a young woman I know.

    She has stage 4 breast cancer which metastasized to her lungs and spine. Sheís pretty much on her death bed. She has three kids. Oldest in high school, youngest 7 years of age.

    Religion is the reason she didnít seek help earlier.

    Suggestion.....

    If anyone of you knows someone who will preach that seeing a competent medical doctor/oncologist isnít the right path to take when confronted with cancer (because itís in Godís hands) and this preacher doesnít have any children to support and you are pretty sure no one loves them and you see them in a dark alley,.......shoot them.
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    ^^ I lived through a different version of that.

    One of my friends is into all things natural, and when a lady we knew got breast cancer, he (and his wife) advised her to use natural remedies instead of going the mastectomy/chemo route. Trouble was : she was slack and didn't embrace the natural therapies properly, but at the same time she was put off chemo by his diatribe.

    She had two kids, eight and ten yrs old.

    Unfortunately she died.

    And I really had to hold my tongue about it, because breast cancer survival is pretty high with conventional medicine.
