Cancer, it really can be fun!

I talk a lot about the down side of cancer so today I am going to talk about the positives of cancer.


As you lose hair you don’t have to worry about shampoo and conditioner, so that means you can save some money.

You get to rock some really cool scarves or hats.


Shaving your legs and underarms has never been so much fun, why its more time consuming actually looking for the hair.


Don’t worry about finding time for a good manicure or pedicure, because your finger nails and toenails are going to look like Fuzzy Lumpkins, well that’s on a good day.



When you don’t want to do something, you just say your sick, when really all you are doing is  reading a great book or watching movies and eating TimTams and drinking tea.


When people get condescending about your health and constantly ask you how you really are, well you have an excuse to go right off at them. “It wasn’t me, it was the medications”.

If you can eat, its the perfect way to not have to cook, get someone else in the house to do the cooking, because you couldn’t possibly do it while you are so ill and the smell of food makes you ill. To add to this, get the person, your partner or children who ever to make you some really random food.

You can crack some really inappropriate dying and cancer jokes, and no one in going to stop you.
