The long-term prognosis for most types of cancer has IMPROVED since the 1990s! See the proof at http://agilawritingblog.blogspot.com/2010/09/updates-on-cancer-registries_20.html
My heart is with you if you're suffering from cancer. The reason I'm sharing the above item today is to help you to feel hopeful. The medical world is making breakthroughs. You or someone you love might benefit from them.
When you do not feel optimisitic, you can try to fake it. Cry when you need to, and do everything you can to bolster your courage, optimism and sense of humor. It's that repeated effort to be positive that can pull you through hard times.
Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.
Face Your Future with Optimism.
